     Our sailing courses  

Our sailing lessons may be held either during entire week charters, or during three weekends, or during long navigation charters (also during the Atlantic Ocean Crossing). Days with plenty of daylight, mid-seasons' changeabe sea and weather conditions and long navigation charters are the best occasions in which to learn or to improve the art of sailing. Here follows information on our courses in detail.
