Strategie und Taktik

Philipp und Julian Autenrieth: "Die beste Taktik und Strategie entscheiden, da Boote und äußere Bedingungen mehr oder weniger für alle gleich sind. Wer das Beste aus diesen Faktoren macht, gewinnt."

The main focus of our instruction takes place during the summer program, but racing practice and competition keeps us busy all year. We have programs available for all levels of sailor and all different types of watercraft. Whether you are looking for an introduction to sailing and the water for a 6 year old, want to cruise or race a J/22, or want to take your racing to the next level in National and International competition – we have a coach and program that will help you reach your goals.

Tomás Ruiz de Luque

„Für mich ist Tactical Sailing ein wertvolles Hilfsmittel, ich kann verschiedene Szenarien wählen und den Wind ändern, während die Boote segeln, das steigert den Lernerfolg“, sagte Tomás Ruiz de Luque, Optimist Team Coach im Annapolis Yacht Club (USA).
Tomás wurde vom US Optimist Dinghy Association (USODA) als Team Coach bei der 30. Magic Oster Regatta (29.03.-07.04.2015) in Braassemermeer, Roelofarendsveen (NL) ausgewählt.
In Argentinien geboren, ist er von Buenos Aires nach Annapolis USA gegangen. Sein Segelerfolg umfasst unter anderen sieben Weltmeisterschaften und sieben Südamerikanische Meisterschaften. Durch seine Erfahrungen, ist Tomás der perfekte Team-Coach für das Annapolis Yacht Club Optimisten Team.


Opti Racing - Instruction from Beginner to Advanced

The team typically participates in several events each season including the Halloween Howl, Atlantic Coast Championship and Midwinters in the Fall; Orange Bowl, USODA Team Race, and Valentine’s Day in the winter, and Team Trials in the Spring. Fall and Spring training allows for sailors to practice in windier conditions than we typically get in the summer, as well as get a lot of focused time on the water before regattas.
