Sailboat racing requires a broad mix of skills, including sail trim, boat handling, helming, rules and tactics, wind, weather, teamwork, rig tuning, starting, and more. At American Sailing Performance Race Weeks powered by North U, we spend five days exploring every facet of racing success through an enriching blend of practical on-water training and races complemented by shoreside seminars and insightful video reviews. With a coach on every boat, you’ll receive close personal attention to build on your strengths and eliminate your weaknesses. Join us for this unique opportunity to become a better, more versatile, and more accomplished sailor.

“Performance Race Week is about getting faster and smarter, and while a sunburn will soon fade, the memories and the lessons will last a lifetime.”

Whether you want a refresher course, or you want to participate in world-class regattas, this is the program for you.

This has been an amazing and invaluable experience for me. I learned more than I ever knew there was to learn. The combination of on-the-water sessions and classroom instruction was great. I would highly recommend it to all sailors and teams.

A note from North U Director Bill Gladstone

Please join us at an ASA/ North U Performance Race Week. I could lure you in by telling you how we spend five days exploring every facet of racing success through a combination of on-the-water training, seminars, and video review. I could entice you by telling you how our expert on-board coaches will help you improve your sail trim, helming, boat handling, teamwork, and tactical skills. I might also detail how you’ll get in a season’s worth of racing - upwards of 60 starts, 25 races, and a 100 mark roundings in a week's time. But the closer is the fun. Come to Performance Race Week for the fun of spending a 5 days with a bunch of other sailors and great coaches; and go home a better, more versatile, more accomplished racer as a bonus.

Don't miss it!
