January 3rd to 7th, 2019  Nick Thompson  2-time world champion shares his secrets.        

Nick’s ability to break complicated aspects of boat handling, strategy and tactics to simple one-section-at-a-time is unparalleled. Every clinic includes on the water demonstrations by Nick for easier understanding and “copying”.  Video analysis and  medal race reruns complete this all-around opportunity for growth.
 
The best way to summarize this opportunity is by quoting last year’s participant Peter Hurley (USA), who repeatedly said: “even if this is the only new thing I learned here, it was worthwhile coming”. Peter came for the first clinic and stayed for the second as well.

February 10th to 14th. Performance, health and well-being.

Open to sailors and non sailors.

Each person is different, and nutrition considered as superfood by some may actually harm others. 

Four time Laser Master World Champion and Finn Gold Cup Winner Wolfgang Gerz, MD has dedicated 
his life to matching foods & vitamins to individual patients and athletes. 

Dr. Wolfgang as we call him will examine each participant to recommend their exact dietary match. Participants who want an even deeper look will be asked to send samples for lab work in Germany a few weeks prior to the actual dates in Cabarete.

Sailing sessions will be serious fun. We will set up marks, give starts, and  have a safety-boat around. As we will concentrate on health and wellbeing, the two or so hours of sailing sessions on the water will be about improving skills but won’t be followed by any sailing theory as we normally do. The sailing coach will be around for feedback when asked. 

Each day after sailing Dr. Wolfgang will give a 1 hour lecture followed by about an hour of questions and answers.

Non sailors are invited to take advantage of this opportunity. It is amazing how many sorenesses, injuries, extra weight and pain can be dealt with just by eating the right food for you. Sometimes supplements are necessary for optimum performance, so this topic of “bio-logical” supplementation with pure and specific vitamins, minerals etc. will be covered as well.  

Dates: February 10th-14th, 2019

Health and Well being by Wolfgang Gerz, MD $500.00
This does not include lab work, and shipping blood and other samples to the lab.

Laser Master Sailor describe Angelo.

“I started sailing the Laser  two years ago and I realized immediately what an important asset it is to have coach Angelo Tabernero at my side every step of the way. He is great coach and a great person paying attention to all details.
I really recommend every Laser sailor of any level to experience  Angelo’s ability to unlock  your Laser speed secrets”.
