PDSC Skiff Academy

Perth Dinghy Sailing Club performance coaching program

Lead by our experienced Coaching Team – Matt Clark-Massera and Virginia Horn our vision is to develop the youth sailors of today to be the champions of tomorrow.

The program not only encourages the further development of the sailing skills for our Junior & Intermediate sailors, it is also designed to engage with our senior members in fostering and imparting their knowledge to the betterment of our youth and the club

  • The Flag Officers and management committee are committed to maintaining PDSC’s position as one of Australia’s premier skiff clubs.
  • In an increasingly competitive environment, the Skiff Academy is an important initiative for attracting and retaining young sailors at PDSC.  
  • The purpose of the Skiff Academy is to support all our sailors reach their potential.
  • The Skiff Academy will offer coaching by our senior skiff sailors, including national champions, who have volunteered their time and knowledge.
  • Invited specialist guest coaches will also deliver sessions at times throughout the season.
  • In addition to on-water coaching each Saturday morning, sailors will be offered mid-week fitness training and other technical seminars over the season.
  • Although initially focused on our junior and intermediate classes, the Skiff Academy welcomes sailors of all ages and abilities
