OUR COACHES

All events are led by USODA National Team and top International Coaches.  Many are Olympians and international class champions.  Each event will have a 6:1 (or less) sailor to coach ratio with a focus on development and advanced skills. Our team of coaches are specifically chosen for the sailor's skillset, class and venue.  Norman Sailing coaches are committed to providing the best experience possible on and off the water.
