The September school holidays saw the Victorian International Optimist Association run a three day coaching clinic at Mordialloc Sailing Club. The training covered Green Fleet to Advanced training and had a great selection of coaches. Big thanks to Sue Sly, Robyn and Bill Philip and Shane Quinlan for organising this event. It was amazing to see the improvement in the kids who attended. Lachie Hartnett was one of those kids and under the coaching of Laser sailor Melissa Hitchen-Haw he won his first race in the Green Fleet.
