Head Coach Brendan Casey
World-class sailor and coach Brendan Casey first made his mark on the international sailing scene when he claimed back-to-back World Championships in the Laser Radial class in 1995 and 1996. After more than a decade at the top of the Laser class, Brendan moved into a Finn, earning a spot on the Australian Olympic Team to sail in the 2012 London Games.
2015 WIND Youth Clinic
July 6-9, 2015
WIND Youth Clinic is a comprehensive training clinic for young sailors ages 13-18 interested in developing the skills to compete at a high level. Participation is open to Laser, Laser Radial, and Laser 4.7 sailors. CGRA is thrilled to welcome Australian sailing star Brendan Casey back to the Gorge to lead participants in a total immersion program focusing on performance sail trim, tactics and boat-handling in classroom and on-the-water sessions. WIND Clinic participants are invited to stick around and sail the following weekend in the annual WIND Youth Regatta, also hosted by CGRA (separate registration).
Please note: All youth sailors must be accompanied by a parent or chaperone.
The clinic is held in the Marine Park at Cascade Locks, Oregon, in the heart of the beautiful Columbia River Gorge. Cascade Locks is a spectacular sailing venue with steady winds, warm conditions, and plenty to do on and off the water. Families can enjoy hiking, biking, windsurfing, and golf, or tour the towns in the area. Accommodations of all sorts are available, including camping within walking distance, or plenty of comfortable hotels. The Gorge is truly a great adventure for all.
