We understand it can be difficult for clients and for ourselves to decide what level of clinic best suits you and how we accept new clients. Therefore, we have developed a user-friendly guide of four levels of training clinics. We hope you will find something to suit your ability with the first level at the “learn to sail programme”, and our top-level Gold programmes. We should remind you that SailCoach is essentially about high-performance coaching, but we also run a community Sailing School from our Malta SailBase.

This is beginner/improver level, and it’s part of our “learn to sail” programme at the Royal Malta Yacht Club Sailing School. The course over several sessions is for both adults and children wanting to learn how to sail in dinghies. Parents or older family members on our ILCA clinics sometimes use our Sailing School for other family members who would like to learn to sail while others take more advanced lessons.
