coaching & sailors support services

B-cademy, The lead Laser TY program



Bcademy 2018 is now set... 8 sailors have been selected (Another one is on waiting list)... La Rochelle is the key location this year









The Optimist K-6 program


Based in Kerry and in partnership with Tralee Bay maritime centre, the K-6 is an optimist program dedicated to Kerry (wider south west at moment) sailors having qualified for the 2018 trials. The core training is done in small units of 5-6 sailors over a series of weekend. Special clinics are added with invitees from outside the region.


The TBMC development program will feed into the K-6 in order to grow numbers and improve the standard in Kerry.

DinghyPerformance sailors


Mentoring and supporting committed sailors is at the core of our coaching ethos. Over the years, sailors have developed trust and commitments to our programs and we are now going further by offering these sailors a tailored support with one to one, small group and simply coaching under their own terms. These sessions may or may not be publicised on the DinghyPerformance news feed.
