SailCoach - “making you better”

Vasilij & Trevor

Come and share our passion and enthusiasm for racing small boats, and be inspired to achieve the best that you can both on, and off, the water

SailCoach has been at the forefront of Laser sailing since 1996 and our founder, Trevor Millar, has been coaching Lasers and other small boats since 1972. With our team of experienced coaches, we provide young people with skills training, mentoring and inspiration to become the world class racing sailors of tomorrow.

Whether you are a young sailor with an Olympic dream or a Laser Master looking to get better, we have something for you. We have taken good club sailors from Optimists, Lasers and other boats and made them Olympians. We have also helped others at all levels in our sport to become better racers with great life skills. 

We work hard at "making you better" in the following ways:


Expert Coaching

Every coach has their own unique blend of experience and perspective, and will bring a slightly different approach to the job. With a combined experience of 15 Olympic Games: you have access to a variety of coaching techniques that you won't get anywhere else.

Campaign Management

Many sailors, particularly those from smaller federations, need more than just training and regatta support: they need help to ensure that their campaign is as effective as possible and, crucially, makes the best use of available resources. Our experience allows us to provide expert and comprehensive advice to athletes and their federations.


Success in sport requires a combination of physical ability and mental discipline. Athletes must have the drive to push themselves hard in training, the hunger to succeed in competition and the self-belief to continue despite failure. We help our athletes to develop the skills necessary to be successful.

Life Skills

The SailCoach philosophy is based around the development of the athlete as a whole, where success is achieved when you realise your personal potential, whatever that may be. The skills you develop and the experience you gain will be of benefit far beyond the realms of the boat park.

"I am very satisfied and pleased to be in Garda with the Sailcoach Team...the opportunities and vision Sailcoach provided was exactly what I was looking for. Thank you!"

Melis Baykan (TUR), Radial Sailor


Training Camps & Clinics

Our Clinics teach specific skills and techniques over a number of days, while Base Camps provide sailors with the environment to reinforce these through practise over an extended period. You can sail at any of our three training bases, one on Lake Garda which we use in the warmer months, another in Malta for when the weather in northern Europe gets colder, and our newest base in Oman.

Regatta Coaching Tours

Support at Graded events in Europe and around the world can greatly improve your performance and we travel to many graded and youth events in the Laser Standard, Radial and 4.7 classes.

Laser Charter

Forget towing your boat all around Europe, with all the costs and inconvenience which that brings - let us do all the hard work. We have a fleet of high-quality Laser hulls, plus a stock of masts to suit all three classes. With our vans and trailers, we travel all around Europe, so you don't have to!

"I can tell you I was very happy of this experience and I would like to stay in contact and to have other chance to sail with sailcoach."

Michele Vezzoli (ITA), 4.7 Sailor
