Sailing courses for adults

Sailing courses for adults use cabin cruisers (Sun 2000, Sprinto, J-80) and are available for various levels: basic, intermediate, advanced, spinnaker and regata.
During summer, for those who are already experienced, there are courses in single or double sailing dinghies (RS Feva).
Group courses (3/5 people) are run mainly during the weekend. Weekday and individual courses on request.
All of our courses favour the practical approach, the theory will be done whilst in the boat.
We take a personalised approach to the courses: our aim is to put the right pupil with the right teacher in the right boat.
Our teaching methods follow the italian sailing federation guidelines

Private sailing courses are flexible and they are available at all levels: you can choose the days, the number of lessons,  and the type of  boat . These lessons can be single, double or groups

The prices will be calculated according to the courses requirements.
