Intl. 470 Class Coach the Coaches clinic - Great success for first Intl. 470 Class Coach the coaches clinic
ISTANBUL, TURKEY-(7-7-2005) Coaches are an essential and growing reality of sailing competition today. With the assistance of the Istanbul Sailing Club, 470 Internationale has just completed the first of what is sure to become a regular and important event, the Coach the Coaches Seminar.

Attracting Male and Female Coaches from all 5 Continents and 24 Nations including Canada, Hong Kong, Israel, Holland and Japan, held over 4 days in the Turkish City of Istanbul the Seminar was a great success.

Coaches from a wide range of experience and across many classes shared information with and heard from the expertise of such Coaching Greats like Skip Whyte (USA), Hamish Wilcox (NZL), Illias Mylonas (GRE) and Victor Kovalenko (AUS) as well as Olimpic Sailmaker/Designer Renzo Sorci (ITA).

Topics ranged from Dealing with sailors emotions to Painting the picture: Juniors to Olympics , Mast and Sail Development to How to categorise Opti Kids , The coaching Dynamic as well as How to overcome disappointment during class transition , Keeping Kids in the Sport, The Coaches Role in Speed Testing, Starting Strategy and Decision Making

Several of the participants who are accomplished Athletes and now Coaches gave personal experiences . Aiko Saito (JPN), Luis Rocha (POR) , Ilan Tastash (ISR) and Mark Robinson (SIN), gave special contributions to share their experiences and to explain their country models.

Special Thanks must go to Yalcin Gurkan and the support of UK Sailmakers and the Turkish Sailing Federation. Thanks must also go to the National Federations of the Coaches involved for their release of Coaching expertise within the Seminar.
