2024 ILCA 6 Youth World Championships

January 10 - January 20

The 2024 ILCA 6 Youth Worlds will be held at Yacht Club Argentino, Mar del Plata, Argentina from Friday, the 12th of January to Friday the 19th of January 2024. We at SailCoach have been offing “Coaching Tours” for over 28 years. As a result, we have the experience that brings the confidence you can rely on for this important regatta.

Comprehensive Coaching Package
By signing up with SailCoach, you get a dedicated, skilled coach who, in most cases, has campaigned at the Olympic level. These “Coaching Tours” offer small coaching support groups with six sailors’ as the target group size. We aim to provide a complete package, including airport transfers, accommodation, and outstanding coaching, with an extra add-on option for an ILCA charter boat. All you have to do is enter the regatta and book your flights, which could be more straightforward.

Learning Goals
At this Championship, the SailCoach team will focus on improving your regatta preparation skills. Our coaches will work with you daily, setting up a structured plan and goals for the upcoming regatta. You’ll learn important details about preparing for events, ensuring you’re informed and ready.

Additionally, our coaches will teach you how to adapt to the different weather conditions and handle the pressures of high-level competition. A big part of this will be developing and using effective race strategies. You’ll get better at analysing races and refining your tactics, with our coaches giving you helpful feedback and showing you how to assess your own performance. This coaching will prepare you to compete like leading athletes prepare.

Success in sports doesn’t happen overnight, it requires a lot of time and effort. With our coaching, you will have learned the right ways to prepare for a championship. Therefore, we recommend you continue to train and compete regularly to hone these techniques and skills.

A typical day
The day would start with a morning briefing, looking over the weather forecasting and communicating anything important from the coaches meeting and specific points to note for the days racing. The SailCoach coaches will offer you coaching support afloat, such as towing if necessary to get to the starting line. Carry any bags with food and spare parts, along with a jacket to keep warm between races.

The day finishes with a post-race debrief and discussion of the day’s events. In some cases, our coaches will make briefings individually going around the boat park before or after racing, depending on the circumstances. We advise our sailors to settle any differences on the water or in the boat park when possible. However, we will be there to support you during protests if all else fails.

Numbers will be limited on this coaching tour, so you are advised to book early.

Arrive at Buenos Aires Ezeiza International Airport (link to find your way to Mar del Plata). Once you arrive in Mar del Plata, a member of SailCoach’s friendly coaching staff will meet you and take you to  Yacht Club Argentino, where the regatta is being held.

11th to 13th January 2024

Familiarisation days, SailCoach will be training at the regatta venue for several days before the event. It gives sailors a chance to get over any jet lag and gain some valuable knowledge of the area. Our coaches will help you develop a “Game Plan” strategy and provide you with video analysis that may perfect your boat handling and speed. Having the right preparation is a must going into an important championship. These pre-regatta days will also help you get to know our coaches, a significant advantage when racing begins.

Racing starts in the ILCA 6 Youth Worlds, in what promises to be a tough event, ahead lies six days of racing, with the first three being qualifying rounds, after which fleets get divided into gold, silver, and bronze, with the new allotted fleets fighting it out over the last three days.
