We are pleased to announce that Delphia Yachts has become an official partner of BMW Sail Racing Academy for the second year in a raw.

Tailored for advanced yachtsmen, BMW offers an innovative and highly professional training session in sail racing techniques and strategies on Delphia 24 OD yachts.

Last year the participants of Sail Racing Academy had a chance to go to Portoroz, Slovenia or Valencia, Spain.

This year the academy took place in Palma de Mallorca 19-21 June and 26-28 June and was 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."

In recent years, Roberto Ferrarese and his team of professional instructors have developed a demanding training programme, which consists of five modules:

Academy Module I: Team and Boat Preparation
Key topics: team building, communication on board, trim, speed
Academy Module II: Strategy and Tactics
Key topics: fleet racing principles, being fast in the fleet, start, beating, marks
Academy Module III: Coached Racing and Competition

Academy Module IV: Regatta Preparation
