If taking a month off in the winter to a warm and windy place, improving your boat speed and boat handling techniques, while enjoying the vibe of a Caribbean town that lives and breathes watersports was out of your budget, it is time to reconsider.
In February and March 2015 we are offering a package that includes everything a sailor can wish for.
Laser coaching: Five days a week, our coach will set up marks, or start lines, and run drills for all participants. These on the water sessions will be two hours long, followed by video debriefing of the day’s training. Optional private or group coaching is available.
Gym: Join one of the classes offered at Rouge gym, Cross fit, TRX, or Yoga.
For those who don’t want to beach run to the gym, mototaxi are readily available and do not make a dent on the budget.
Accommodation: Take advantage of one of Cabarete’s hotels to pick the comfort that fits you best.
Our packages start at $1,690.00 a month based on shared lodging at the Laguna Park Hostel.
