Inspired by my experiences, thanks to both Barrett and Eddy, I pitched US Sailing with the idea of creating a traveling advanced racing clinic. In 1975, I ran 10 clinics throughout that summer. By 1976, the clinics were so popular that we hired several more coaches from the college ranks, including Perry, Peter Isler, Stuart Johnstone, Ed Baird and Mark Laura. Every single coach had a full schedule of clinics. The idea for the CISA clinic came out of that series.
