Princess Sofia Trophy (Laser and RIB Charters)
March 25 - April 6
SailCoach maintains a fleet of approximately 30 Lasers guaranteed less than two years old at most major Laser regattas in Europe. This means you never have to worry about transporting your boat and allowing you to fly into the venue with your Laser all ready to sail. All charter kit is guaranteed to be less than two years old.
SailCoach has been operating European Laser Charters for well over 21 years and we take pride in providing the best service as we are always on site to help sort out those little problems. There is no other organisation that offers such a wide choice of regattas and service.
Our goal is to enable Laser sailors from any part of the world to compete on the European Circuit or participate in our training clinics with good equipment, hassle free. We are Laser sailors ourselves so we understand your needs.
If you are thinking of coming to Europe then please ask us about putting a Laser charter package together as we can take a lot of the effort out of competing on the European Regatta Circuit. We will do our very best to put a package together that suit your needs.

We would also like to remind you that you are responsible for the boat insurance at the regatta and need to transfer your own Laser insurance for the charter period.
Charter of Laser Foils/Blades
If you need us to included foils with the charter, we can do that for an additional fee of €50 on top of the charter fee as they are particularly vulnerable to wear and tear. Any significant chips will result in a €50 fine deducted from the damage deposit.
Boat Insurance is not covered within the charter price. Please make sure that you transfer your own Laser Insurance before you travel as most regatta organizers will ask for it in writing.
All Lasers are chartered subject to availability. A €200 non-refundable deposit must be received by SailCoach before a booking is confirmed. The balance payment must be received by us at least 30 days before the start of the charter period. Pay a deposit now…
Palma, Hyéres, Delta Lloyd and Kiel regattas, Laser Standard Senior camp; Youth European Championships, the Radial European Championships all have a very high demand for Laser Charters each year.
