The Big Picture: Foil Coaching

SinC WASZP Foiling Clinic

May 31, 2023

 

Twenty-three coaches from across Canada (BC, ON, QC, NS and PEI) came together at the Pointe-Claire Yacht Club on May 24-26 for the first Foiling Coach Clinic, a joint partnership between WeCANFoil, Sail Canada and Voile Québec.

This clinic is a pilot to develop Sail Canada’s Foiling Instructor and Student levels, and the outcome for certified CANSail instructors who also attend this clinic will be the ability to teach programs on foiling equipment. Some key focuses of the clinic are safely using coach boats around foiling equipment, foiling safely, equipment management, teaching students on foiling equipment, and developing foiling programs.
