Hey all... Im a new J/70 owner, 699, Safety Third... loving the boat so far, tons of fun... learning lots about how to sail it but looking to learn more because we are pretty slow... We are sharp guys but feel we could use some help getting up to speed. Anyhow, looking for a coach to come along to an event with me and the crew sometime soon maybe over the summer or fall. Never really hired a sailing coach before but happy to compensate someone thats qualified for their time... If anyone has any recommendations along these lines or ideas on ways to improve other than the most common response of "sail the boat more often" id appreciate it... we are sailing a lot but feel some good direction could go a long way for us.
Anyhow, thanks, we were in Columbia for Easter Regatta and in Charleston, and are planning some more events, happy to travel anywhere in the country, but based in Charlotte, NC.
