Herfstkamp A The Autumn Camp
The autumn camp, in Brouwersdam in October 2019 (the 1st edition). The days began at 8, when we had to do our morning warm-up and exercises with coach Han to train our condition, we came back right after at 8:30 for a delicious breakfast. When we finished, which was around 9, we listened to what Han planned for the
The group was full of different people: younger, older, experienced, inexperienced, and as a group, we helped each other out getting ready for the day. When we finished getting ready for the water, we were ready at 10 to start the different exercises. At 1 we came back for some warm lunch to regain energy and by 1.45 we were already back on the water with different activities planned. At 4.30 we came off the water, we packed our boats and changed into our dry clothes. At 5.30 we had dinner, and to still remember what happened on the water, at 6.30 we reviewed our sailing mistakes and exercises, to know what to improve on. We also worked with video footage, to see how we work on the water. We finished at 8, giving us plenty of time to be in bed at 10. The environment is great at camp you come closer to other sailors, you help each other out, improve your sailing skills, and also enjoy the great energy there.
