Our New Head Coach Juan Carlos Romero
Juan's better half Viviana recently delivered their first new Romero in into the World and we wish the Romero family the best in raising the newest LYC Opti sailor.
The LYC International Optimist Dingy Program is fortunate to have Juan Carlos Romero as our Head Coach. Originally from Ecuador, Juan Carlos is one of the preeminent Optimist coaches in the world and has been honored to serve as team coach on many International and World regatta teams. Juan coaching style is low key and measured to provide information to sailors at the moment they are ready to learn it. Juan is one of the best technical coaches in the World and can tune Optimist Sailboats for top performance. Juan has exceptional grasp of rules, race strategy & tactics and has been invaluable at the top end of the LYC coaching program. Much credit goes to Juan for the World Class success many sailors in the LYC Optimist program are enjoying.
