My coaches are Sarah Bethune and Annie Dysart from the PEI Sail Team and they are the best !!! Annie & Sarah are third-year university students, and they both put so much hard work and dedication into coaching us. Even when the job gets tough, they never give up on us. Annie & Sarah know when to be tough on us, and also know exactly when we need a pep talk. They make briefs fun and debriefs even more enjoyable! Sarah has great racing tips, while Annie has great technical knowledge on how to race the shortest course. This summer I sailed 29er with my best friend, except it was super old and every day we had to repair it, Annie never gave up on us and continued to teach us even though our boat was constantly breaking. From dealing with sinking lasers, and capsized 29ers, Annie always keeps her cool. Meanwhile, Sarah takes it upon herself to drive over 7 hours just for 3 of her race team kids to compete in a regatta!
These coaches are great, and I don’t know where I’d be without them.
