LEARN FROM THE BEST.

The BMW Sail Racing Academy is directed by Italian Pro Roberto Ferrarese, a winner of the Admiral’s Cup, several World & European Championships, and a three-time America’s Cup athlete. He says: "No doubt, theory and tactics are one main pillar of the BMW Sail Racing Academy, but in the end, every second spent on the water increases your feeling for the boat and improves your way to excellence." Also integrated into the training programme are Ferrarese’s son Simone, a match racing specialist, multihull legend Loïck Peron and Markus Wieser, who is among the best in the world in a wide range of boat classes.
