D-ONE - Winter-Trainingscamp in Palamos/ Spanien

Organizer: HessSailcoaching in collaboration with Devoti-Sailing and Sportcamp Raudaschl


Experience shows, that winter training is one of the most effective and efficient ways to prepare ambitious sailors for the next sailing season. Sailing camps in Palamos/Spain will be organized and performed by Stefan Hess 

The idea is: Charter a boat (2 D-Ones) or come with your own boat and you have a perfect sailing week. 


The participants will be challenged with all senses. Training Schedule is tight and includes all necessary aspects to achieve substantial progress according to the agreed individual goals.

The group consists of 4 to 6 sailors max.

Charter boats will be offered at attractive weekly rates. The boats are as new, fully equipped and serviced. Sailors shall only bring their own sails. If this is not possible, top-quality sails will be available.


The meetings will take place in Palamos/Spain. This location offers an ideal training venue with easy access to the international Airport Barcelona (120km) or Girona airport, only 35km away. The Costa Brava is one of the most attracting tourist areas around the Mediterranean Sea and offers reasonable accommodation close to the club facilities. 

Stable wind conditions provide daily sailing. Temperatures vary between 15 and 20 C° and the special situation of Palamos at the headlands of the COSTA BRAVA offer a choice of wave conditions - from short chop in the bay to long rolling waves further offshore.Water temperature is around 15-17C°.
