Adapted for sailors wanting to get into skiffs or foiling catamarans, the High-Performance Acorn program takes part over two individual weeks of group training. Trainees will get professional coaching on 49ers, Nacra 17s and Waszps. This program can accommodate individuals, crew & skipper pairs, or whole teams looking for a group training opportunity. Between the two intensives we offer custom training for those who want to stay at Oakcliff and continue their High Performance training. Prior high performance experience is not a requirement, but is highly encouraged.
Learn to foil on our fleet of WASZPs, Foiling Nacra 17s, and 20s. Our expert coaches will provide personalized advice on how to take your sailing and fitness to the next level required for this newer discipline of sailing. There is a preliminary fitness test that must be passed in order to be accepted into the program. If you cannot complete the test, you will be unable to sail the boats safely. The test involves completing each of the following within a 1 minute time interval: 25 inverted rows, 15 25 lb dumbbell curls, 15 push-ups, 20 air squats, and 25 crunches. You must also be able to run a 5K in under 30 minutes. Keep in mind, these are the minimum requirements to be safe. The fitter you are, the better.
