ILCA Skills Week

Our aims for the week are:

  1. Support any sailor transitioning into the ICA from another class.
  2. Support and develop any sailor moving between/new to ILCA rigs
  3. Offer an opportunity to train at a world class venue with fantastic coaches to all class members, of any experience, any ability and any age!

The training is Monday to Friday and offers a huge amount of flexibility in the schedule. As always, boat speed will be a large area of focus, along with advanced rigging and tuning, boat handling and racing. With five days of training, this offers a unique and great opportunity to embed new skills and techniques rather than talk and start the development phase that may happen at training weekends.

All coaches are ILCA specialists and work within the RYA and UKLA system at a high level. Their sailing skills are matched by their sparkling personalities which makes the learning a whole lot of fun!
