Happy Years of Coaching

We are not SailCoach “making you better” for nothing.

Singapore ILCA 6 team and other at Malta SailBase
Welcome to SailCoach, the world’s first and leading coaching and support organisation for sailors of all backgrounds. Since 1995, we’ve been working with sailors from across the globe, from places like the Seychelles to Uruguay, and from Iceland to the Cook Islands. Our mission is to provide a comprehensive solution for sailors, offering coaching, charter boats, accommodation, campaign support, and mentoring from our two SailBase’s in Malta and Valencia, Spain.
Our sailors participate with our support in various regattas, with a special focus on the ILCA and Optimist classes. We take pride in our track record of helping newcomers in sailing progress to regional and national competitions. We have had the privilege of nurturing talented athletes who have gone on to win medals at four Olympic Games.
At SailCoach, we recognise that our sailors are more than just athletes, they are individuals with unique goals and aspirations. That’s why we offer personalised coaching and support that goes beyond the technical aspects. Our approach focuses on developing life skills, ensuring that our sailors leave our programs with a sense of experience rather than just completing a sailing clinic.
For many of our sailors, SailCoach has been the key to turning their dreams into reality. Without our support, they might not have reached their full potential. We are dedicated to helping emerging nations expand their sailing programs and achieve success on the global stage. Join us today and become a part of the SailCoach family as we continue to make waves in the world of sailing!

Our mission is about more than silverware.

At SailCoach, we are more than just about sailing skills. We focus on developing the whole athlete and helping them reach their personal best, both on and off the water. Our approach is simple, we see sailing as more than just a sport, it's a way of life. Through our coaching and guidance, we teach discipline, teamwork, and perseverance traits that go beyond sailing and into everyday life. We're here to help our athletes build confidence, resilience, and a strong work ethic that will benefit them in any endeavour. We know that every sailor is unique, so our coaching is personalised to fit each individual's needs. Our mission is to unlock your full potential while nurturing a lifelong passion for sailing. Join us at SailCoach and discover the athlete within you.

What we do...

At SailCoach, we’re all about helping sailors reach their best potential and we have an excellent track record of doing just that. We offer coaching clinics throughout the year at our Malta and Valencia SailBase’s, and we also travel to major Optimist and ILCA 4, 6, and 7 regattas worldwide.

Our team of experienced coaches works with athletes who train full-time with us and those who join coaching camps and regattas while managing their work or school commitments.

We believe in creating a positive and supportive team environment, and we expect all sailors to respect their fellow athletes and coaches.

Whether you want to dedicate a year to ILCA sailing or just try a coaching week or regatta, feel free to get in touch with us. We’re here to answer your questions and help you choose the right program for you.

The opening of Valencia SailBase

Valencia SailBase on a November day
SailCoach has expanded to a new base in Valencia, Spain, where sailors can enjoy fantastic sailing conditions and warm weather throughout the year. Valencia has become a popular training spot for sailors of various levels, including Optimists, Finns Masters, ILCA Dinghies, ILCA Masters, and even Olympic sailors.

Our Valencia SailBase is situated at the renowned Real Club Náutico de Valencia, offering a “home away from home” for teams in search of top-notch training facilities in Europe. Additionally, we provide secure long-term container storage at competitive rates, making it convenient for teams to keep their equipment just a day’s drive from mainland Europe.

But our Valencia SailBase is more than just a storage place. Our experienced coaches are here to offer personalised training and support to athletes of all levels, helping them build the skills and confidence needed for success on the water.

Moreover, with daily ferry services to Palma Majorca nearby, SailCoach’s Valencia SailBase serves as an excellent starting point for teams planning to compete in European regattas. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a beginner, SailCoach’s Valencia SailBase has all you require to elevate your sailing game.

We offer a wide range of services, including top quality coaching, charter boats, SailCoach lite, all tailored to meet the specific needs of our athletes and sailing Federations. Our coaches are among the best in the world, with a proven track record of success at all levels of competition.

We believe that sailing can be a powerful tool for personal growth and development, and we are committed to helping young people unlock their full potential. By providing our athletes with the skills and confidence they need to succeed, we hope to open up new opportunities for them, both on and off the water. For over 28 years, giving back to the sport we love has been at the very core of SailCoach’s ethos. We are passionate about empowering athletes from all corners of the world, regardless of their economic situation, to participate at a level that’s tailored to their unique needs and goals. We take pride in the fact that many of our athletes have gone on to achieve incredible things, and we are always thrilled to hear their stories of how SailCoach has helped them on their life journey.
