Thomas Chaix Sailing ltd is trading as DinghyPerformance
We are dedicated in our aim which is promoting "best performance" out of competitive sailors.
Training, clinics, advice and support is delivered by a small group of dedicated professional part time or full time coaches.
We share and interlink our knowledge of the sport and of our sailors, always improving the quality of our coaching, thus maximising athlete progress and performance.
We provide advice but also access the best gear on the Market to offer young sailors the best chance at performance. From Charter to purchase we have complete solution in the optimist class, and our offer just keeps growing.
Thomas Chaix Sailing ltd is also trading as Ride&Sail. This is a new branch promoting cycling as cross training of choice. We are advising sailors on how best to use cycling and we are in the process of securing access to a good brand of choice for bikes and cycling equipment... In the mean time, we source bikes that are ex display, older version and assemble them.
We concluded the best Optimist summer in years... DinghyPerformance sailors did Ireland proud collecting outstanding results at the various events sailed... Champion at the French summer cup, Champion at the UK nationals, top lady at CIE and UK nationals, a superb 1-3-4-5 in UK, 9th at Europeans, 16th at worlds...
Now fully based in Tralee, the company is looking to develop its offer from coaching, mentoring, advising competitive sailors as well as growing the resale side of competitive gear. Event organisation and management was started as a new offer in 2017 and showed outstanding success.
Thomas is no longer the ISA (rebranded Irish Sailing) junior coach but his knowledge of Irish junior sailing is second to none and the DinghyPerformance coaching offer reflects a logic of progress, results and builds sailors for life, all within the spirit of the Irish Sailing Pathway.
