ILCA 4 Europeans Coaching Tour
The 2022 EurILCA ILCA 4 Europeans will be held at Cadiz, Spain from Saturday 15th to Saturday, 22nd of April 2023. We at SailCoach have been offing “Coaching Tours” for over 27 years. As a result, we have the experience that brings the confidence you can rely on for this important regatta.
The SailCoach Coaching Tour package has everything you need to have a successful championship, with none of the hassles that goes with trying to bring things together at the right place, at the right time. So let SailCoach look after everything at the regatta and you only need to enter and book your flights.
By signing up with us, 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, and outstanding coaching, with an extra ad 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?
A typical 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 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.
