TBMC clinics are annual features. Led by our home-based coach, these sessions are delivered by renowned international and national coaches. They have a clear focus on racing skills in key classes to progress sailors in Performance sailing.

OPTIWEEK & LASERWEEK

This is our key clinic of the year. 5 days of solid training with experienced coaches conclude with an open regatta on day 6. The clinic aims at preparing laser and Optimist sailors to their premier event of the year -the nationals- and will usually be sailed the week prior.
