As part of our new Open Training initiative, IOCA (UK) are looking for an experienced coach to lead the programme. It is expected that the lead coach will attend all the Open Training events across the UK ranging from training for junior, senior, girls and mixed groups to tailored weekends including introduction to racing, big fleet racing, high performance training and preparation for different venues (sea vs lake). There will also be transition training weekends over the winter period introducing sailors to youth boats such as Laser 4.7, RS Feva, 29er and 420.

The IOCA (UK) Open Training Coach will work with the National Head Coach, Sarah McGovern and Maryan Hook, Class Training & Development Coordinator in regards to the training programme and development of our sailors.

IOCA (UK) are dedicated to offering training that meets our sailor’s needs and provides them with the chance to learn new, or hone existing skills, to enable them to be the best that they can be.

If you would like to apply for this exciting opportunity please email with an outline of your sailing and coaching experience and why you would like to be part of this initiative.

We look forward to hearing from you and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Maryan at the above email address.
