Edison Sailing Center is pleased to announce that the Colgate Clinic for Junior Women Laser Sailors will be held November 19 & 20, 2016, in Fort Myers. Named in honor of women’s sailing mentor & entrepreneur, Doris Colgate, this clinic offers salient information on tactics, fitness, nutrition, and careers in sailing.
We are delighted to announce that US Olympic Sailor, Paige Railey, will be the Junior Women’s Coach for this two-day clinic. A two-time Olympian, and Florida sailor, Paige has sailed in international competitions for a decade, applying technical, physical and tactical skill sets to achieve her goals.
Participation for the event is limited to twenty Laser sailors ( 4.7 or radial rig).
Tuition for the two days is $250.00, which includes housing (room & board) with host families, personalized coaching & feedback from clinic and community professionals; limited availability of Lasers (for those who cannot bring their personal boat). Skippers should plan to bring their own sails. Registration may be accessed through our website www.edisonsailingcenter.org or through Regatta Network.
The event will begin at 8:00 AM on Saturday, November 19th. Anyone planning to arrive by plane should schedule flights to arrive before the starting time, and should not schedule their outbound flight time until after 3:00 PM on November 20th. Families wishing to make this a mini-vacation are invited to contact the Best Western Waterfront Hotel directly (239-997-5511) and mention the Colgate Clinic at ESC for a discounted weekend rate.
