MARINA RUBICON SAILING CENTER
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!
Choice of conditions
The sheltered location of Playa Blanca Bay gives us the rare opportunity to choose the conditions we want to sail in. Inside the bay conditions are flat/choppy with more shifty conditions, outside the bay we get big swell/waves and stable oceanic winds!
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!
