Founder and Executive Director
Where to start! Trevor’s innovative coaching style has landed him countless awards and honours over the past 40 years, with his athletes winning Olympic medals, European titles, World number one rankings, World Sailing Youth medals and many World Cup and Europa Cup victories. Trevor, originally from the small village of Newtownards on the outskirts of Belfast, began his prestigious coaching career with the RYA, where he was the UK National Laser Coach with Team GBR for several years, enjoying successes at World and European Championship levels. He later moved back to his native Ireland, setting up the Irish Olympic Development Sailing Team and coached his squad of single and double handers on the international stage. Renowned for his visionary approach to coaching, Trevor later set up SailCoach, where he has guided sailors from an array of different nations to 7 Olympic Games and countless World, European and World Cup Championships with a plethora of silverware along the way. His experience at the highest end of our sport is unique in today’s age, and his knowledge and medal-winning formulae are of great benefit to the young sailors presently in Team SailCoach.
