Rob Deane Profile

Coaching Philosophy-


Sailboat racing is a complicated sport requiring athletes to master technical skills as well as complex tactics and strategy. While it is incredibly physical, success is more driven by the mental side of the sport. At The Chesapeake Experience we are equally focused on developing intellectual strength and physical precision to help athletes achieve their peak performance.
