Coach's Toolbox 2.0

With the toolbox, you receive prepared scenarios "ready to run", which you can use to practice as a beginner or expand your sailing capabilities at any time. For beginner you learn basic knowledge, luv up, bear away, tack, jibe or optimise boat speed. Naturally, all other sailors wanting to perfect their knowledge in strategy and tactics in order to be optimally prepared for the coming regattas, can use it as well.

NEW!  Categories  for "Beginners, Juniors, Regatta Sailor and Experts" and "Tips-Tactics" with 1-click operation.

  • All exercises in version 2.0 (as of 20 March 2020) arranged in one place - and therefore easier to find and use.
  • With 1-click operation, the most important tactical tips - from start to finish line - are summarized in a new category "Tips-Tactics". 
  • The Coach's Toolbox is a "Stand alone" or "All in One" packet" an important extension for the complete program of "Tactical Sailing - Games&Tips".
  • Four sailors - four boats (Multiplayer) can sail a regatta in Fleet-, Match- and Team race as well as Sailing Champions League format.
  • Team Race with course in "S" and "Q" format and tactics: Tricky tactical tips for your team, such as attacking, hindering, giving 'space' or forcing 'space'.
  • Regattatraining with different wind strengths selectable, wind regions 1x1 to 8x8, constant or random, shifting and oscillating with gusts and lulls. Wind fields with left-right rotation.
  • Up to 10 boats are your competitors in tactical exercises at the start, the buoys and the finish line.
  • You can choose between a Opti, Laser, Finn, 420er, 470er, Korsar, Kiel- and Centerboard-Zugvogel, H-Boat, 29er, 49er, J/70, Fareast 31R or TP 52, all of which are comfortably equipped.

Team Race Tactics

Tricky tactical tips for your team, such as attacking, hindering, giving 'space' or forcing 'space'. Also at Tactical Sailing, we offer the formats of Team Racing - 2 vs. 2 or 3 vs. 3 boats - a lot of communication, excitement and lots of suspense, because "...everything is open until the end", says Mathias Rebholz (International Judge).

Effective tools for all levels of training

Many qualified coaches already use this special Coach's Toolbox in their work with the "Tactical Sailing" program. Through use of the various animations, attention and concentration are verifiably boosted, and the single sequences can be individually changed as needed. The toolbox is a very effective tool at one's disposal for the design of seminars, lectures and workshops for all educational levels.
There are the Coach's Highlights and the large Coach's Toolbox.

Coach's Highlights - 20 exercises as an introduction to 'tactics', start with one click

With one "click", the coach can repeatedly call up the simulation of a regatta scene and discuss it with the sailors. Train the ability to make decisions on the regatta field, such as. 

  • Start phase, wind conditions, risk assessment, attack-defence, right of way, finish line and performance analysis.

Strategic and tactical decisions in regatta sailing are made in a similar way to classic "risk management". Already at the starting line, the sailor has to decide for the right or left side of the regatta field. Jochen Schümann, Germany's most successful sailor, agrees: "The physics of sailing permanently forces a clear decision."
