Optimist Summer Camp
August 4 - August 18
The SailCoach Summer Camp is designed to give Optimist sailors quality sailing time during the summer school holidays. We have teamed up with a hotel on the Maltese islands to offer a complete package for both parents and their children.
The clinic will be led by coaches with a proven ability to prepare and inspire young sailors and will use top of the range Winner Optimists. The venue SailCoach’s Malta SailBase offers excellent sailing conditions year round, allowing for quality hours on the water, contributing to improved speed and technique, all supported by specialist coaching.
We all know high performance comes from many hours on the water and this clinics goal is to do, just that under the watchful eye of some of the best coaches in the class. Developing speed in our sport is all about details and on the water we will give you what you need to be a smarter and faster Optimist sailor!
In this Winner Clinic our focus will be:
- On-the-water drills for to improve boat handling technique
- Racing Training to help improve your race strategy
- Video analysis with targeted feedback
- We will facilitate your learning and make that learning fun
