THEME:Practice Drills

Issue 139 is all about drills you can use in your next training session or pre-race warmup. It starts off with practice philosophy and then explains more than 30 exercises you can use for improving the skills of your team. The drills are broken into groups according to how many boats are in your training session (just yourself, 2 or 3+) with a focus on fun and an assumption that you'll be doing these drills without a coach or coachboat.
