"The basics of sailing" course is designed for anyone who've always, whether because of other people's tales, or simply by watching "the lucky ones", felt that the wind, the sails and the sea can provide unique satisfaction, a satisfaction that cannot be described by words, but needs to be experienced in person.
The power of the wind, the perfect simplicity of the sails and the unpredictability of the sea bring us back to a forgotten, but primal relationship with nature. A feeling of a renewed bond with nature makes sailing so enchanting, becoming a part of life we cannot wait to return to.
By acquiring basic sailing skills, and by being certain that we want to exceed them, you have to decide between two types of courses. We offer two types of advanced courses, related to two different ways of enjoying sailing: cruising and sailing techniques. This does not imply that the level of knowledge and skill acuqired by one of these courses differs greatly from the other. The "cruising" course focuses on special techniques and skills which enable it's participants for taking longer cruises on their own. The advanced sailing techniques course deals with techniques neccessary to participate even in regattas.
