Salam olahraga,

We have employed the world sailing academy to train our sailing team for the PON regatta 2016
During a five months training period Pete and Eshed improved our sailors speed beyond recognition and the result was 7 medals out of possible 10 for our team, Qualifying our 470 women team to the Asian games 2018.
Pete and Eshed introduced the highest level of performance coaching, managed to teach our sailors, coaches and management how to win, how to become a team and work together in order to achieve goals.
They covered all aspects necessary for competing including helping our management team to become as effective as possible.
Both of them crazy awesome coaches that knew what they do in sailing that knew how to help and bring my team UP to the very next level. We only wished that we had them earlier. They both shout a lot to team and smile at the same time. OUR sailing team will never be the same again as they experience world level training that we never had before. Also Dipesh Nerpagare the assistant coach that remind stay with us for 5 months and make sure the programs run smooth well, having him make this much easier .
We highly recommend the world sailing academy to run a sailing program for any team who wish to achieve success and it is our full intention to keep working with them in the near future.”

I have known Eshed since June 2011. In my brief interaction during the period of his first
stint in India when he was employed in India, as a contract coach for the Optimist, Laser
and 420 training, his abilities as an excellent trainer were very evident. During my tenure
as Chairman, Performance Sailing Development committee for the Yachting Association of
India, I had a more in-depth interaction with him as he was a key player to help us achieve
our goals. During this period, I have found that his knowledge and understanding of
coaching as well as the methods adopted by him to train an athlete are world class.
We have had the pleasure of utilizing his services in preparation for the Asian Games 2014
and the Olympic Qualifiers, 2016. Despite the organizational challenges faced by us, he
has maintained his professionalism and stuck through well over and beyond expectations
of a professional coach. His strengths observed by us are:

  • Knowledge- Not only of the sport, but also how people learn
  • Skill – He has proven beyond doubt to have excellent coaching skills
  • Teamwork – Eshed is the ideal teammate who believes team comes before self
  • Communication – Despite working in different time zones and traveling extensively, he has kept the core team updated on the progress and has accepted both motivational as well as developmental feedback in a professional manner
  • People skills – Eshed has a knack of establishing excellent rapport with his athletes which provides the strong foundation to the training program

I have no doubt that any athlete or organization considering utilizing his services will
benefit in all classes and across all levels of sailing from Optimist to The Olympic Classes.

Eshed is an  extremely straightforward, precise, hard working, sincere, caring, hospitable, direct, helpful, keen coach  who
pushes hard enough to get improvement and not too hard and has taught me so much about myself over the two years that I’ve been training with him. He has a really good eye for anything that could improve your sailing. He respects and works on all aspects of an athletes sailing career, not just the sailing itself, but the mental and physical as well, enabling the best possible outcome, which is all a sailor can require from a coach. His knowledge, keen eye and logical approach to every day makes for fun, effective training and I would definitely recommend him to any sailor out there.

For the first few weeks of training , he pushesd me hard, but only to the point where he could watch my mistakes, watch how I handle pressure, grip what makes me tick what makes me break.
He patiently helped me understand myself, my habits and I am finally starting to understand the sailor I am and have an image on the sailor I will becomKaryna Manuel e.
He is the only coach that ever taught me correct sailing techniques, fundamental sailing basics and setting the right attitude in decision making, basically taught me risk management.
He made me fast very fast in strong winds after years of being told I am too small for a laser.
He has an understanding When he is not seeing the attitude he knows he should, and that I just need that something extra to wake me up from a negative mind-set to give that extra push. The right word or a harsh commanding tone or shout.
He also gave me a chance to experience the real campaigning lifestyle including intense fitness sessions, theoretical discussions and taught me how to manage my campaign efficiently.

I started working with Eshed in May 2015 before the Delta Lloyd Regatta. Eshed hadvery direct feedback and his straight talking meant you knew where youstood, He really helped build my confidence even after not such good days he would always have positive comments as well as explaining where I went wrong. On a personal level Eshed is easy to talk to and approach. He will always give his honest opinion on things. It is good to try a different approach to coaching sometimes and I found it very constructive.  I am very much interested in working more with Eshed in the future

Israeli Yachting associationIn the past 5 years Eshed served as the coach of our Laser youth national team to European and world championships and was very successful in his work. mainly when his team returned with Gold and bronze for girls in Laser radial at 2010. and reached a top 10 result in 4.7 boys at 2012. We highly appreciate Eshed’s coaching and personal abilities and would warmly recommend him as a sailing coach

Laser Masters I appreciate both your abilities & diligence, For me yours was a good approach with enough explanation coupled with experimentation (e.g. sailing without a rudder) to demonstrate the reasons & validity of what was trying to be achieved & what benefits might result. I wish I had found you earlier but never mind it is definitely my intention to return
