June 24-26, 2014

This three-day training clinic in beautiful Cascade Locks, Oregon, is designed to challenge Opti sailors of all levels with wind, waves, and a world-class coaching staff. The emphasis is on boat speed, boat handling, tactics and strategy in a heavy air environment. Scheduled the week before the annual Gorge Opti Regatta, also hosted by CGRA, the Ripple Clinic presents an excellent opportunity for Opti sailors to acclimate to the venue and tune up for the regatta.

The 2014 Ripple Clinic is three days of intense on- and off-the-water training with an expert coaching staff of international professionals.
