SailCoach hopes you will be as excited as we are about this ILCA 4 Clinic. SailCoach believes strongly in the multi-national training concept which we developed many years back, therefore this one week of hard training will give sailors the opportunity to push themselves hard against competitors from other countries. You will meet people from around the world who like you are “mad about sailing” and will become life-long friends in our sport.
The clinic is designed to help improve boat preparation with the most recent developments in the class, sail settings and advanced boat handling skills including roll-tacking, roll-gybing and mark roundings. The ILCA 4 Clinic will look hard at developing both Upwind and Downwind speed with extensive use of video analysis.
It will also provide young sailors with the opportunity to be coached by the most experienced ILCA coaches available, including coaches who have been members of the Team SailCoach squad at different Olympics.
The clinic’s daily schedule will combine classroom lessons with on the water exercises offering healthy competition and is followed up with debriefing of tactical and strategy situations. Sailors will receive individual attention both on the water and with video analysis.
