Ventura Training Camp on for 2014


Last year's Weta training camp in Ventura was so much fun, we're gonna do it again! Join us for some great summer sailing in Ventura, California on the weekend of June 21-22. Spend Saturday with an on-the-water coach for some skill-building and camaraderie and a sail a few miles up or down the coast, and enjoy Sunday with three to five short, fun races. This event coincides with Summer Sailstice, so you can do both at the same time!

Can't dedicate the whole weekend? Choose a day! The Saturday activities will be geared toward folks who want more time on the water and would like some coaching to increase their skill handling a Weta. Sunday will be fun racing and a good opportunity for racing noobs to practice starts and mark rounding with a fleet of us. Ventura consistently serves up great sailing conditions in the summer, with winds in the low to high teens, so there will be fun for everyone. Check out the schedule for more details. You don't want to miss this!

Did I mention, all this is FREE! Big shout out to Wetamarine and Pierpont Performance Sailing for helping us put this together.

Don't have a boat? Don't want to bring your boat? Flying in from out of town? Pierpont Performance Sailing has one of their Wetas still available to charter for this event. Here's some more info from the web site at

Thanks to Misha for the photos of the Weta training weekend 2013
