Sailing Lessons

Our sailing lessons are designed for all ages from 12yo to 72yo. The sailing lesson schedule is structured so that you can spread your learing experience over a period of weeks or months, three days at a time.

Our sailing dinghies will accommodate one or two sailing students plus the instructor. Life jackets are provided as is a waterproof-pouch for your mobile phone. We can arrange for drinks and some munchies, so that you do not have to worry about where to stop for merienda.
