LIVE FROM CAPRERA

Ganga Bruni and CVC secretary Enrico Bertacchi

Ganga Bruni has arrived!

Oct. 11. Ganga Bruni, returning from Sail GP in Cadiz, arrived at the Caprera Sailing Center in the afternoon and immediately got on the dinghy with the course instructors to observe training and give initial advice to the crews who In the previous two days of training (Oct. 9-10) Have been optimized for weight and roles and trained with exercises focused on departures.

There is no shortage of excitement at the master stage high performance of Ganga Bruni and Max Sirena at the Caprera Sailing Center. We arrived together with the trainees and immediately went out to sea for a pre-training “anti-rust” session, in which five J80s have Refreshed maneuvers with racing drills, tacking, speed gybes, row line and rabbit starts (one boat tacked to the left upwind, and the others must start by furling the stern of the rabbit boat).

What do you say, are they ready for the master class? Today the crews carried out a series of preparatory exercises to perfect boat control in all racing maneuvers, so upwind and downwind tacking always with rolling, gennaker hoisting and lowering, and mini races with starts. Much attention is focused on the sequence of maneuvers and the adjustment of sails in order to always have one goal: speed and angle i.e. VMG to beat the opponents.

From this course we are learning how complex it is to become competitive and why every single maneuver must be repeated and perfected dozens of times in all wind conditions. During the training sessions, the crews that will participate in the RS21 Europeans will be selected, and after the first hours of the master stage, thanks to the advice of Ganga Bruni and the instructors, already progress is evident in the maneuvers that are becoming fluid and faster.
