Mental Performance Forum 2017


GCYSA was fortunate to have two mental performance experts come visit the team this past weekend, Colin Guthrie and Meg Harlow, both of Canada.

Saturday, we introduced the ‘Learning Laboratory’, where athletes are present, curious, and open, and broke down the four central tenants of success in sailing (strategy, technical, fitness, and mental skills.  We also honed in on the concept of using colors to describe our mental state: blue, green and red.

Sunday, we focused on the components of a strong team, and discussed the value of trust as the foundation of every successful relationship.
