What the British Youth Sailing programme strives for
To develop and retain the best racing sailors in the world
Racing is about solving the problems and making decisions that the course, weather and competitors throw at you
The Sailor Performance Psychology Model represents the psychology mission to help remove psychological barriers and optimise performance.
This is achieved through establishing, strengthening and maintaining the core foundations of a B.L.A.S.T. performance mindset and optimising on water, sailing specific mental processes.
Through developing these skills and increasing their robustness by practicing them in training and under pressure in regattas, it is believed that sailors will be able to thrive when it matters most. Meaning they can apply and demonstrate these skills, make logical decisions and deliver optimal technique under pressure.
