Valencia SailBase is a popular training venue for both Optimist (Orange Regatta), Finn and ILCA (Laser) sailors alike, with its excellent sailing conditions afloat. Making Valencia a natural choice for SailCoach operating out of the Real Club Náutico de Valencia, with the Mediterranean providing excellent warm weather training all year round. SailCoach’s Valencia SailBase will provide a “home from home” for teams wanting a base in Europe with year-round training facilities. The SailBase can offer favourable prices for long-term containers parking, giving teams a base to store equipment a day’s drive away from the heart of Europe. They can then fly from any part of the world, spending a week or two getting set up and get over jetlag, et cetera, before competing on the European regatta circuit. Traditionally, the first regatta on the European circuit is Palma Majorca, and with Valencia having daily ferry services to the island, what better starting point could there be?

SailCoach is more than a coaching organisation…

“Sports teaches you character, it teaches you to play by the rules, it teaches you to know what it feels like to win and losing teaches you about life.“ – Billie Jean King

Some of the things we do...

Malta is where SailCoach is headquartered and where most of our activity takes place. In the eight years, we have been operating out of Malta we have found it to be an excellent venue with hardly any sailing days lost due to weather.

Valencia SailBase provides a “home from home” for teams wanting a base in Europe. The Valencia SailBase will provide favourable priced long-term containers parking, giving teams a base to store equipment a day’s drive away from the heart of Europe.

We now have one of the biggest charter fleets in Europe, and we attend more regattas in any year than most sailors do in a lifetime. We have ILCA dinghies, RIBs and vehicles, and I’m sure you will be surprised at how competitive we are on price.

SailCoach “lite,” aims to provide a one-stop package for coaches to fly into our Malta or Valencia SailBases and start sailing the same day. We provide airport transfers, accommodation, charter dinghies and a RIB for the coach, all for a small daily fee.

Boarding School Programme

The future of a sailing athlete will become more dependent on quality time on the water, and the best way to achieve this is through combining education and specialist coaching. Here, at SailCoach, we are bringing together these two elements by offering a boarding school solution.
