Summer Training

LISOT (Long Island Sound Optimist Training) has just finished two 3-day training periods and is now ready to head to the USODA National Championships.

Niantic Bay Yacht Club, Niantic, CT and the Peck Family graciously hosted LISOT July 9 through 11. This was a great opportunity to train with head coach Trevor Moore and summer assistant coach John Moulthrop. Conditions were variable but typically gorgeous for eastern Long Island Sound.

For July 14 through July 16 LISOT visited the Dinghy Shop in Amityville, NY and the Great South Bay. Sailors got exactly what they traveled to the Long Island south shore for - wind! Wednesday was a Team Racing practice and the 20+ sailors slept well that night. On Thursday, many sailors tried to take in JSA Open Regattas at Larchmont and Head of the Bay but a small group ventured to Wet Pant Sailing Association in Sayville for an extra day of practice in conditions similar to expected for the Nationals. The weather didn't let them down.

LISOT would like to thank our friends at Niantic Bay Yacht Club, the Peck Family, The Dinghy Shop and it's entire crew including Jim & Susan Koehler, and the Wet Pants Sailing Association for two great weeks of sailing. We hope to see you all soon.
