Thistle Youth Clinic

The Portland Thistle fleet is going to host a Youth fleet only crew training clinic at noon on May 12th at WSC.  We want to invite all youth sailors from the High school, Middle school and opti racing programs to come and see what it is like to crew on our clubs most powerful boats.  We will work on basic spinnaker trim as well as spinnaker sets, Jibes, and dowses.  You will get to sail on a thistle in all positions and maybe even drive a thistle.  We will start at noon and work on boat handling and then we will do a few races.  Just tell your coach if you are planning to attend and we will see you there! You may contact Dave Sexton at 503-804-3202 if you have any Questions.
