The sport of sailing differs from other sports practiced outdoors due to the continuous link with many natural factors such as wind, waves, currents, tides, thermal phenomena, perturbations, rain and so on, which are defined as “weather and sea” conditions.

The learning of this fascinating sport therefore includes the acquisition of basic theoretical concepts relating to the knowledge of winds, safety at sea, the nomenclature of the boat and its equipment, knots, etc.

For these notions, which we consider fundamental for the practice of this sport, we offer lessons that include a theoretical part and a practice at sea every day.

However, it should be noted that the lessons of the different courses, planning in advance, may vary according to the aforementioned “weather and sea” conditions.

The daily lesson could therefore be structured with more hours dedicated to theory, or more practice time at sea; otherwise, if the “weather and sea” conditions were not considered safe by the instructors, they will be entirely dedicated to the theoretical-playful part.
