MARINA RUBICON SAILING CENTER – LANZAROTE

Since 2011 DinghyCoach is organizing high level sailing clinics in Lanzarote out of Marina Rubicon. The Marina is located in Playa Blanca bay on the south of the Canary Island Lanzarote. Because of its unique location and predictable weather conditions Lanzarote offers a great venue for highly efficient trainings and clinics!

LANZAROTE CLINICS

Throughout the year we offer a wide range of clinics for Optimist, Lasers & 29ers with top-level coaches all working according to our DinghyCoach vision and standard. During our clinics in Lanzarote we aim to improve the level of sailors through structured training sessions covering all aspects required to compete at the highest level. This includes physical, technical, tactical & mental training.

UPCOMING EVENTS

SAILING CONDITIONS

Choice of conditions
The sheltered location of Playa Blanca Bay gives us the unique opportunity to choose the conditions we want to sail in. Inside the bay, it can be flat/choppy with offshore wind; outside the bay, we will get big swell/waves and stable oceanic breeze!

Great weather: 100% sailing days
Over the past years we achieved a 100% sailing rate. This means that none of our training days were lost due to no wind or too much wind. Due to the location of the island and the shelter that the south side of Lanzarote offers us there is always a place to sail! 
The temperature is between 18-25 degrees in winter and between 24-30 degrees in summer, which makes it a comfortable place to sail. No drysuits needed!

ACCOMMODATION

During our clinics in Lanzarote we can offer three accommodation options for participating sailors and accompanying adults/siblings.

1. Incl. Accommodation – Sun Tropical Hotel Resort ***

Sailors can book their clinic including accommodation, which also includes meals. We can also offer accommodation to accompanying adults/siblings at a special rate of €49/night/person including breakfast/dinner.*

Accommodation will be provided in THB SUN TROPICAL HOTEL, which is located in a 15min. walking distance from the Marina. The hotel offers simple but large rooms with a small living/kitchen area in each room. We will provide a hotel pick-up/drop-off service to the Marina for sailors that have booked their clinic incl. accommodation with us.

*please note that due to a busy season on the island, we can only guarantee rooms for our clinic dates booked at least 2 months before the clinic starts. For different dates or bookings less than 2 months in advance, we ask you to e-mail us at Lanzarote@dinghycoach.com
** please note that a single room fee of €20/night/person may apply if a guest chooses to stay in a room alone.

2. Villa’s & Apartments through Dinghycoach

For families that prefer to be self-sufficient and maybe closer to the marina, we can offer several types of apartments and villas. Due to our good contacts on the island we know which villas are in good proximity and neighborhoods.

We have different types of villas/apartments in different price ranges. For more information e-mail to: villas@dinghycoach.com.

In case you prefer this type of accommodation please book your clinic Excl. Accommodation, as you will pay your accommodation separately.

3. Excl. Accommodation

The third and final option is to book your clinic excl. accommodation and find a hotel/apartment/villa on your own. Please be aware that prices can vary heavily depending on seasons.

OUR BOATS

We offer a wide variety of sailing classes to enjoy high level training in for Optimists for the youth to Lasers and Waszps for the older high performance sailors!
