Whitsunday Times - - ON THE WATER -

MANY young Laser sailors headed to Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club last week­end for a two-day rac­ing skills camp run by Yacht­ing Queens­land coach Danny Fuller.

Fuller, a for­mer Laser cham­pion, trained the sailors with a com­bi­na­tion of class­room work and coach­ing on the wa­ter.

WSC pub­lic re­la­tions of­fi­cer Heidi Wal­ton said par­tic­i­pants came from as far away as Cairns and Bund­aberg and all showed great im­prove­ment on the wa­ter.

Ms Wal­ton said with the suc­cess of the camp, which in­cluded some fast sprints in the bay, there were al­ready plans for sim­i­lar events in 2014.
