Come and join us at the NEW 8 Days a Week UK Optimist Open Training. A new concept to boost UK (and other) based sailors knowledge and boat handling in the optimist. Coaching will be done in different groups and per level. So everyone is welcome to participate.

What to expect?

  • Top Coaches: Some of the best coaches in the optimist fleet will be coaching you. The focus will be an optimist specific boat handling and tactics.
  • Video briefing: We all know that progress is quicker while using different tools while coaching. We make sure our briefings before and/ or after sailing include video footage from the sailors in the session. We will also provide some example video’s from top international sailors. Depending on the subject a drone might be flying over your head as well.
  • Intensive sessions: Those who have trained with 8 Days a Week before may know that we like intense training sessions. We want to give the sailors a good day of training in which we use our time wisely and don’t waste any.
  • Charter boats: for those who need to charter a boat, complete Winner 3D star boats they will be available if necessary.
