Down under

Time to depart the icy waters of the northern hemisphere and head ‘down under’ for an action packed summer of sailing across New Zealand and Australia.

It has been a great season in Europe for Zealous Sailing Limited. A number of international events in Spain, Holland, Poland and Finland have kept us busy. Highlights include…

  • Continuing work (2013 & 2014) with Helsingfors Segelsällskapp (HSS) in the position of Head Coach, with an intensive winter and summer training programme.

  • IODA World Championships, Poland, working with FIODA’s Team Finland. No question it was a tricky event, but nevertheless a great experience, with the sailors walking away with some invaluable lessons learnt.

  • Taking up a new contract with Finland’s oldest and most prestigious yacht club Nyländska Jaktklubben (NJK). Zealous was contracted during September and October, holding weekly trainings and a series of clinics for NJK’s Laser Radial squad.

In New Zealand, Zealous is working with Yachting New Zealand (YNZ) in preparation for the ISAF Youth Worlds, coaching the Laser Radial male and female representative. A training programme has already begun and the coming month will include training in Auckland, Napier and Wellington + ISAF Sailing World Cup - Melbourne in early December. It is an intensive, yet exiting training programme focused on preparing the sailors for the biggest competition of their careers to date. The programme will run until Dec 23.

Follow the summer,
