Searching for an event coach for two youth sailors attending the O’pen Skiff North Americans from April 21-23 at Mission Bay Yacht Club in San Diego. We need coaching support from April 19-23 to allow some prep time on the front end.
The sailors are siblings, a boy age 10 and and a girl age 12. Both of them have events experience and are well along on their competitive journey. Both could benefit from some technical and tactical tidying-up prior to the event. And both need a proper coach in their corner for this event instead of dear old dad.
We will have a coach boat available. Transportation and lodging could be included for the right coach, if you’re not from the area.
We are traveling from Thailand to attend this event. If the coaching experience is a happy one for all, the engagement could turn into one or more paid trips to Thailand to do clinics over holiday breaks. Shoot me an email and let’s chat.
Must be an experienced race coach from the youth sailing space OR a current/recent collegiate sailor who remembers what it’s like to be a kid at a big event. Must have serious race chops, but also a supportive teaching style — screamers and misogynists not welcome. We value the pursuit of personal bests, sportsmanship, and fun more than triumph at all cost.
