SailCoach Boarding School Academy Programme

Welcome to the Future of Sailing and Education

At SailCoach, we believe the future of a sailing athlete is built on quality time on the water combined with excellent education. Our boarding school programme offers the perfect solution to balance both.

Our programme is specifically designed for young Optimist and ILCA class sailors, providing them with the tailored coaching and academic support they need to excel both on the water and in the classroom. Whether you’re a club level Optimist sailor with ambitious goals or advancing through the ILCA ranks, our programme offers the ideal environment to develop your sailing skills and achieve academic success.

Why SailCoach?

In today’s competitive world of sport, natural talent alone isn’t enough. At SailCoach, we provide expert coaching and state-of-the-art facilities to nurture and develop both the athletic and academic potential of young sailors. With 30 years of experience, we have the expertise and the  track record to deliver results.

Our Partnership with Mediterranean College of Sport

The SailCoach Academy, in collaboration with the Mediterranean College of Sport, Malta, allows sailing athletes to integrate their academic studies with a proactive sailing programme. This partnership ensures that students receive a holistic education while pursuing their passion for sailing.

At SailCoach Academy, students benefit from a flexible schedule that accommodates both their training and academic needs. Our experienced educators and coaches work together to provide a supportive environment where students can excel in both areas. This unique approach helps young athletes develop discipline, time management skills, and a balanced lifestyle, preparing them for success both on and off the water.
