Numerous 505s coverged on the beautiful Sterkfonteindam to enjoy some great sailing with some of the best 505 sailors in the world. Johannes and Angela are visiting SA regularly and agreed to join the class for a superb training camp on the shores of the dam. Sailing started at midday on Friday, the 10th of November with some good breeze and high speed sailing. Boats were tuned and settings changes in order to ensure that all knew how to go fast in those conditions. Saturday started early with some very good racing in lighter conditions and still teams were taught what is fast and not so fast sailing. On Sunday, the teams raced across the dam and stopped every so often to chat about what was done, what showed results and how this could be improved. 505 sailing is such a great sport and the class is making a serious effort to improve the level competence of the local teams.
