Regatta Experiences with 1D Sailing and North U 

National One Design Sailing Academy (1D Sailing) is going on a road trip again this winter and we want you to come join us.

After the phenomenal and sold out success of our North Sails North U Clinic with Bill Gladstone in the spring of 2016 and the 2017 winter bucketlist regatta experiences, we have again partnered with North U and Bill Gladstone to host more North U Clinics in conjunction with Sailing World's Helly Hansen NOOD regatta in St. Petersburg, Florida, Feb 16-18th;  Miami Sailing Week from Coconut Grove, Florida, March 8-10th; Sperry Charleston Race Week April 13-15th; and Sailing World's Helly Hansen NOOD regatta in Annapolis, May  4 - 6th.

The idea is simple. 1D Sailing will be delivering our fleet of 10 Flying Tiger 7.5’s to the best regatta venues. They will be in the water fully rigged, tuned and ready to go.  The 7.5 meter is a lightweight 25'sportboat with high aspect square top mainsails and asymetrical kites on a sprit crewed normally with 4 - 6 sailors.  At each event, Bill Gladstone's team of North U professional coaches will run one of his now famous 2 day clinics. Bill and his team provide an amazing hands on experience and they will  teach you to be a better and more knowledgeable racer through on water drills and expert coaching followed by daily de-briefs.

There are 3 levels of coaching available.  

  1. Full Time Coaching:  

    You’ll have a coach on board throughout the 2 day clinic and the 3 day regatta.  Includes daily shoreside sessions each day prior to sailing; organized clinic drills, practice and races during the clinic; and daily video debriefs during the clinic and regatta.  

  2. Clinic Only Coaching:  

    You’ll have a coach on board during the 2 day clinic.  You’ll be racing without a coach for the 3 day regatta.  Includes daily shoreside sessions each day prior to sailing; organized clinic drills, practice and races during the clinic; and daily video debriefs during the clinic and regatta.

  3. No Coaching*:  

    Your Flying Tiger will be available for 2 days for practice prior to the regatta and for the 3 regatta days.  You are welcome to participate in the shoreside class and debrief sessions and sail in our on-the-water clinic (without a coach).  Or you can practice on your own if you prefer.
