Kieler Woche 4.7 and Radial Open (Coaching Tour)
September 2 - September 7
Bronze/Silver Level Coaching Tour
Not many sailing venues can say they first held their regatta in 1882, however, Kieler Woche can, and this year’s regatta will celebrate another legendary sailing week. The regatta takes place at the venue of the 1972 Olympic Regatta, and we are sure most of you will not have been born then.
By signing up with SailCoach, you get a dedicated, skilled coach who, in most cases, has campaigned at the Olympic level. These “Coaching Tours” are offed in small coaching support groups with six sailors’ target group size. We aim to provide a complete package, including airport transfers, accommodation, boat charter, and outstanding coaching. All you have to do is enter the regatta and book your flights, which could be simpler.
A typical day would start with a morning briefing, looking over the weather forecasting and communicate anything important that came 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 on 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.
1st of September 2021
Arrive at Hamburg Airport to be met by a member of SailCoach’s friendly coaching staff, and they will take you to the team accommodation near the Olympic Harbour, in the town of Schilksee.
2nd and 3rd of September 2021
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 on 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.
4th to 7th September 2021
Racing starts in Kieler Woche for the Open Classes in the ILCA Laser 4.7 and Radial. Kieler Woche is one of the classic European regattas that everyone wants to do well in. A good week here will give you bags of confidence and the experience to compete in the summer championships. The SailCoach experienced coaching staff will provide you with all the support you need on and off the water to help you reach your full potential.
8th of September 2021
A member of the SailCoach staff will drop you off at Hamburg Airport for your journey home, hopefully with a trophy or two under your belt. One thing is for sure, and you will have gained a lot of experience in these major championships and have sweet memories that will stay with you the rest of your life.
