Course 7 - Goals mindset and race preparation

The preparation for an event begins the moment you decide to participate. In the interim period, there are a number of things you CAN, COULD or SHOULD work on depending on priorities, wishes and ambitions.

In this lesson, we look at the long-term preparation, focusing on condition and understanding of the equipment, crew and planning. We also look at the short-term preparation where local wind and weather, wind statistics, race-day preparation, competition training and checklists are reviewed.

We will also dive into the sport psychology of sailing. You will learn about working with different types of goals, vastly different with each its purpose. A you will get presented to a set of mentale tool that can help you at various stages in a learning proces or sailing campaign.

The following quote is quite descriptive of this course:

“We are what we repeatedly do.

Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit”

(William Durant, (not Aristotle))
