On Sunday Nick is back on the main stage for his insightful and informative Laser talk and is joined for the day by 2012 Paralympic gold medallist Helena Lucas, 2012 Olympic silver medallist Luke Patience, double Olympic silver medallist Joe Glanfield and 2012 Olympic / Team Volvo sailor, Lucy Macgregor.

In the coaching area it’s Lucy Macgregor’s turn to try on the harness and demo some top trapezing tips when she joins 470 sailor Joe Glanfield for the Trapezing Tips coaching session, with Helena giving her best advice for getting a good racing start at 15.00.
