Laser Training Camp

Event Details

  • Sat 27 Jul 2013, 9:00am - Sun 28 Jul 2013, 4:00pm
Whitsunday Sailing Club, Airlie Point


In the last weekend of July, we'll be hosting a Laser training camp with Yachting Australia's top tier coach Danny Fuller. Danny has a wealth of experience coaching top level athletes and this camp will be a terrific opportunity for sailors of all ages at all levels to progress their skills.

Rigging, sail controls, sheeting, steering, boat handling and racing tactics particular to the laser will be covered over the weekend.

For those who are really keen - and want to follow up with a second weekend - Danny will be hosting a training camp in Mackay the following weekend (August 3rd - 4th).

The fee for the weekend is $100 and those without their own Lasers may hire a club Laser by arrangement with our Sailing Development Officer, Tim Parker. The hire fee for a boat is $100 for visitors to the club, or $80 for WSC club members. Note that visitors must be a member of another recognised sailing club.

Meet Danny Fuller

Danny Fuller has lived in Townsville on and off for 16 years. He's a fitness coach as well as a sailing coach and, when not sailing, enjoys mountain biking. Danny's sailing journey started at PDSC over 30 years ago, sailing sabots and since then he's loved being out on the water and really enjoys the challenges of racing.

Danny sails both for fun and competition in a range of classes and currently sails a laser radial.

He took on the role of North Queensland Coach to support junior sailors and their club coaches in the North. In 2013 Danny aims to build on what YA started and improve the sailing skills and knowledge across North Queensland.
