From our Sensaciónes Náuticas a group of children has emerged, after several summer courses which have become the quarry of the Optimist sailors team of the Real Club Nautico Torrevieja. The group, very compact and homogeneous, is composed of children between 8 and 10 years with a similar level of preparation. Since June, when they underwent an intensive one week training, under the guidance of their current coach, Sergio Garcia Torregrosa, these boys have undergone an evolution and since then, they are very good in the children’s sailing Optimist B and A.
The boys, who have demonstrated exceptional qualities to be part of the RCNT sailing team, will train three days a week until September. Once this training period is finished, the RCN Torrevieja will propose a week of concentration in the High Performance Centre in Los Narejos together with the other members of the sailing team. From there on they can become part of the official sailing team of the RCN Torrevieja.
On the other hand, the children’s and youth sailing team of the RCN Torrevieja does not know these new boys and the Optimist A and B teams have continued to train under the guidance of Enrique Mena and Sergio Garcia Torregrosa, respectively, and also the Laser Europe attended the class in July, organized by the Spanish Sailing Federation, at a gathering in Barcelona, after the European and World Championship.

The courses consist mainly in learning the techniques of navigation on the board and the management of it. So far three complete courses have been given and the fourth is on its way, with a very well meant thanks to the favourable times.
