“Zenda University (ZU) was a great experience for a new skipper like me. I had crewed for
other boats in a prior life but had not skippered many races until last year. ZU was what
I needed to get more competitive and comfortable on the race course. Having Andy and
Jim instruct during actual races was invaluable. They helped me get my rigging tuned
and helped me with sail trim so my boat speed was competitive. We practiced a lot of
crowded starts and mark roundings so the chaos was like a regatta. I went home with
a list of things to practice and how to practice them. That two days has given me more
confidence in my decision making abilities on the race course. There were many times
during the races that I was contemplating a tactical decision but wasn't sure if I was right
or not. Having Andy tell me to do something that I was already thinking was a huge boost
to my confidence. After ZU, I am now racing with my home fleet instead of chasing them
from a leg behind. Sailboat racing has just gotten a lot more fun.”
