“Zenda University was a great experience for a new skipper like me. I had crewed for other boats in a prior life but had not skippered many races until last year. ZU was what I needed to get more competitive and comfortable on the racecourse. Having Andy and Jim instruct during actual races was invaluable. They helped me get my rigging tuned and helped me with sail trim so my boat speed was competitive. We practiced a lot of crowded starts and mark roundings so the chaos was like a regatta. I went home with a list of things to practice and how to practice them. That two days has given me more confidence in my decision-making abilities on the racecourse. There were many times during the races that I was contemplating a tactical decision but wasn’t sure if I was right or not. Having Andy tell me to do something that I was already thinking was a huge boost to my confidence. After ZU, I am now racing with my home fleet instead of chasing them from a leg behind. Sailboat racing has just gotten a lot more fun.” – Sally Payne
