Catawba Yacht Club hosted a Speed Clinic on April 19-20.
Greg Fisher was the clinician. Greg is the reigning North American J/22 Champion and a former North American Lightning Champion. Greg originally opened Fisher Sails. Later he merged with North Sails. The "F" in the MF Main and JF Jib that North makes for Lightnings indicates his design. He is by all counts one of the most accomplished sailors ever.
Greg provided group presentations as well as individual coaching. He definitely knows a lot about racing J/22s, Lightnings and other one design boats.
The clinic was hosted by Ron Wright with assistance from Max Treece, Kevin Kearley and Tom Smiley. CYC attendees and helpers included Tom Martin, Larry Jordan, Christianne Cormier, John Holmes and Paul Yandle. A number of Lightning skippers and crew came from Atlanta, Raleigh and other areas.
