Summer Camp – Day 3

The PSCO Games continued at 8:00am today with a game of netball with a twist (instead of throwing it in a net we had to throw it to another team member who has to catch the ball). Once finished we had another great breakfast supplied by Northampton Sailing Club.

We only had a short morning session (around 1 and a half hours) where we worked more on starts, they are still not perfect! As well as upwind tactics and tuning runs.

We came off the water at 11:30 to watch the RS:X Men’s Olympic Race. What a two races. It was close throughout  and at the end of the second race the room went up in roars as Nick Dempsey got 1st place in the race, narrowly beating Greece by nothing much more than a hair width. Tense.

In the afternoon the wind picked up and we started on carve gybes and fine tuning our technique for them. Afterwards we raced again but instead of the usual box course we did a fin-race downwind Slalom.

Once off the water we debriefed and had tea. We prepared for the next PSCO event, the theme was School Sports day. We did a sun cream and spoon race, a changing relay (we had to put on a harness, buoyancy aid and hat and swap each time), human knot and a keep the ball in your legs race. We finished off with a 3 legged race (which turned to a 4 legged race with 3 people for the last run).

Tomorrow it is the PSCO Medal race which means double points, both positive and negative!
