Elementary Sailor's Course

We prepared this course for those who wish to take their very first step towards being a sailor. Just as all the rest of our courses, “Elementary sailor course” does not approach sailboats or sailorship as “vessel operation”: We will be thinking on sailing and sailorship in relation with nature and all those that are above and below water.

If you wish to learn sailorship without missing out on possible meanings of being in nature and on sea, we will be waiting.

Course duration is 4 days, 32 hours 4 of which is theory. It consists of daily sails.

  • Boat types and their characteristics
