WHAT: Since 1978 the CISA clinic has been teaching the nation’s best youth sailors how to do it better. Focused on the Olympic track, the CISA training has fostered sailors to win over dozens of Olympic medals, countless world, and continental titles, and to promote the Corinthian spirit. The clinic has a long tradition of great coaches and legendary sailing. The venue at Alamitos Bay Yacht Club is perfect for a classroom setting with ocean access. Conditions can be anywhere from idyllic fair-weather sailing to big-breeze with ocean swell. Attendees of this clinic will leave with a full notebook, tired bodies, and big smiles.
