Strategy and Tactic

Philipp and Julian Autenrieth: "The best tactic and strategy decide the outcome, while the boat and the conditions are more or less the same for everyone.  Whoever can make the best out of these conditions, wins."

„I like the fact that with Tactical Sailing I can run different scenarios and change the wind while the boats sail! I feel it is a valuable tool that I will definitely use with team USA in Holland”, said Tomás Ruiz de Luque, Optimist Team Head Coach at Annapolis Yacht Club (USA).
Tomas Ruiz de Luque was handpicked by the U.S. Optimist Dinghy Association to coach the US Optimist Sailing Team when they participate in the 30th Magic Marine Easter Regatta (March 29 – April 7.2015) in Braassemermeer, Roelofarendsveen, The Netherlands.
He was born in Argentina and moved to Annapolis from Buenos Aires. His sailing background includes competitions in seven World Championships and seven South American Championships. His background in Optimist coaching makes him the ideal candidate to provide this same World-class training to the Annapolis Yacht Club Optimist Team.
