Product description

For people with little or no previous sailing experience.

This course is held using our Laser 16 dinghies that are sailed with a crew of 3-4 persons. During the two days we will focus on both sailing theory indoors and sailing basics on land in a simulator and in water as existing weather conditions allow. After the course you have learned the basics of sailing and rigging of the boat.

If you choose to join the Sailing Center you will then be ready to take part in our coached beginner trainings. In the weekly trainings we repeat the things learned on the beginner’s course and continue working with the boat handling and sailing skills. In the trainings you will also learn about boat maintenance and other useful seamanship skills not to forget the basics of fleet racing. After you are ready to sail the boat confidently and independently, you can apply for Laser 16 skipper rights and go out sailing on your own basically anytime you want.

This course requires no prerequisites.

Price: 270 €

You have an option to join the Center during or right after the course, in which case we will deduct the price difference (170 €) from your membership fee.

This course lasts approx 9.00-16.30 on both days. You will get an infopack from your coach before the course via email. If you have any questions please send an email to hssmrc@gmail.com
