What level of sailor are you?

We have three levels of training clinics; therefore, there should be something to suit your ability. The first level is our “learn to sail programme” and our top level is Gold. We should remind you that SailCoach is essentially about high performance coaching.

Gold Level

Teaches advanced racing skills to sailors who have been active at the international level and are usually thinking about or campaigning towards an Olympic Games. Additionally, youth sailors that can finish in the gold/silver fleet of the Youth World or European Championships are welcome here.

Silver Level

Teaches advanced racing bringing a greater focus to the skills needed to become a successful sailor. We are looking at sailors who have been active in their national sailing circuits for two or three seasons or talented club sailors aged 15 and over. Sailors should be capable of sailing/racing in conditions of up to 20 knots of wind.

The course over a number of sessions is for both adults and children wanting to learn how to sail in dinghies. We also have a number of small keelboats Beneteau 21 which can also be used for lessons. Parents on our Laser clinics sometimes use our Sailing School for other family members that would like to learn to sail while parents are taking more advanced lessons.
