How would you describe your coaching style?

Do you have any advice for sailors attending the US Sailing Championships you are coaching at?
“Take in everything you can! There are so many talented sailors and coaches around you. It’s the perfect environment to learn and progress as a sailor regardless of your current ability level.”
