WHEN/WHERE WE SAIL

Fall & Spring

2NINER trains on weekends during the Fall & Spring at the US Sailing Center Miami. The flat water and consistent breeze of Biscayne Bay provides one of the best training  grounds in the world for skiff sailing.

We support a series of major US youth regattas and select international events throughout the year. A general vision of our annual 29er roadmap is “here.”

 

Storage Fees

Athletes seeking boat storage at USSC Miami must check in with the office staff to set up an account and pay storage fees. Contact USSCM.


HOW CAN I GET STARTED?

Athletes encouraged to sign up for seasonal program and join the team for regattas. Athletes traveling to Miami from afar must contact head coach Philip Muller to make arrangements for scheduled practices.

Interested sailors with experience in doublehanded / trapeze sailing, with advanced racing involvement are encouraged to get a taste during a seasonal clinic or “try-it-out” day.


I WANT TO SAIL & I HAVE A BOAT

Great! Sailors provide their own boats to participate. If you have questions about finding a partner or boat, call us. Our program boat is available for charter during seasonal practice so interested sailors can try-before-you-buy.


I WANT TO SAIL BUT I DON’T HAVE A BOAT

There are a few ways sailors without boats can get involved:

  • We have a few boats available for seasonal charter for a participants first season. Charter form here.
  • Sign up for a US Sailing “Try-It-Out” Clinic or join 2NINER for a try-it-out day or practice.
  • Find the coach at/after local regattas and ask to go for an opportunity to sail with an experienced sailor.
  • We want to help crews looking for a skipper (or a skipper in need of crew) but you MUST speak with Philip Muller about finding a partner. Sailors cannot show up for a practice, clinic, or regatta without prior communication.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT?

2NINER strives to create a positive and challenging environment for athletes to be pushed toward excellence. Sailors can expect to be challenged mentally and physically each day of sailing. It is our goal to enrich your sailing knowledge, ability, fitness level, and race attitude every day.

Our daily focus encompasses several critical parts of the sailing animal: boat specific technical knowledge, forecasting and meteorology, personal fitness and agility, strategic and tactical playbooks, boat mechanics and handling. Daily schedules include: onshore attention to equipment/tuning, forecasting, fitness, on-water drills and races.
