Pritchard Camps And Clinics

The Pritchard double act announces details of their upcoming clinics.

At it again, the Pritchards have lined up an awesome selection of camps and clinics to take your sailing to the next level in 2009. Take a look at the schedule below for details of each course, and how to find out more. 

Pritchard Camps and Clinic Schedule:

*Vela Baja - February 7-14: This is a new clinic location for me. It is a place deep down in Baja California on the Sea of Cortez that has very consistent winds. I used to go down there as a kid and it was always special. Conditions are awesome. The wind comes from the left with nice rolling swells- I remember sailing on a 4.5 all the way up to a 7.5! A great Freeride/bump and jump location. I will be teaching novice to advanced manoeuvres- so improving your jybes, learning to jump, doing some tricks or whatever else you can imagine! Come down and check it out. For details, contact Karl at Vela:

*Punta San Carlos Wave Camp - April 11-18th: This is one of my regulars and we always score some great conditions. San Carlos is the ultimate place to learn how to wave sail. The waves are nice, long and gentle- they don’t hurt you. They get you addicted to riding waves. I have taught people everything from waterstarts to pushloops and wave 360’s down here.  We have some great methods for instructing. My buddy and team rider Kevin McGillivray comes with me and we work on the beach with you, take you through video training courses, get photos of you ripping and utilize talking helmets from Headzone to be right there with you to walk you through the moves! This is a one of a kind experience. Check it out at:

*Punta San Carlos Wave Camp II- April 18-25th: Due to overwhelming response, we had to do another week- both of these camps are filling up so get your reservation going!

*Punta San Carlos Wave Camp III- October 10-17th: This is a great time of year for south swells and perfect wave riding conditions. I’m trying to talk my brother into coming down for this one so inquire within to see if we can make that happen. The more responses we get from you guys, the more likely I’ll be able to get Kev to come 
on down!

*Maui, Hawaii- Any time: If you are coming to Maui for a sailing vacation, check in and let us know. Both Kevin and I have been doing Private Lesson’s as well as having some of the best rental gear on the island! Contact:
