Welcome to the Website of Roland Gaebler Coaching
As one of the most successful international sailor I would like to offer my services as a trainer and
coach for individual athletes, sailing teams and training groups.
I competed at 5 Olympic Games (1988-2004) and I won a Olympic bronze medal (Sydney) and multiple World, European and National championships. In total, more than 80 international titles in four decades.
Since my 16 years I am a professional sailor and coach. And I've sailed Laser, Finn, 470, Tornado and various mono-and multihulls 40-140 feet. Inshore and Offshore. Also I do windsurfing and kitesports.
I have sailed thousands of races on a variety of sailing areas. There is hardly any weather, wind and wave conditions, which I have not experienced.
More experiences come from 10 years of management training for companies in various industries. With the theme team building, teamwork, leadership, communication, motivation, turnaround, crisis and conflict management.
In 1997, I perfected the sparring in a training group of sailors from Australia, Austria, Greece and Great Britain. This training team has won a total of 20+ Worldchampionship titles, 4 Olympic medals and many other championships. This record is surely unique in international sailing.
In the period from 2001 to 2003 I supervised as national head coach the German 49er and Tornado class. I searched and trained young talents. The Peckolt brothers in 49er won the bronze medal in 2008 in Qingdao. But also internationally successful athletes like Marcus Baur, Max Groy (49er), Johannes Polgar (Tornado) and I have accompanied several years as a trainer and coach.
As racers you can benefit from my successes and experiences. It does not matter whether you are a regional, national or international regatta sailor. My job as coach is to bring you forward. And the most effective way and shortest possible time.
