Why should you take our sailing course?

We are going to give you some reasons to enrol the little ones on a sailing course:

  • We believe that it’s important to educate the little ones from the earliest age so that they can begin to love the magnificent nautical and sailing world. Today’s youth will be tomorrow’s sailors.
  • Build confidence with your skills and with the sea.
  • Make new friends in a healthy and fun environment and to work as a team.
  • It will keep our children busy and entertained during their holidays in an outdoor activity to make their free time more enjoyable.
  • It’s an ideal activity if you live in the area or plan to spend a few days here. We are 10 minutes away from Platja D’Aro and Sant Feliu de Guíxols.
  • While the little ones take a course, the parents can carry out their activities or rest on the beach watching their children navigate. Or if you feel like it, you can sign up for an adults sailing course.

What’s included in the course?

The price of the activity includes everything necessary to do the activity with the best guarantees:

  • Certified instructors with experience with children.
  • Collective and individual sailboats to adapt to the speed learning of each student. We have 3 different sailboats:
    • TOPAZ ARGO: collective sailboat to accommodate children with the instructor on board. It is a latest generation boat, specially designed for sailing schools. New from this 2020 season!
    • RS FEVA: Sailboat with a slightly smaller size so that the little ones can learn to sail with the help of the instructor.
    • TOPAZ TAZ: small sailboats so that those who already have the necessary confidence and can sail the boat by themselves or in pairs (always with the supervision of an instructor in a speedboat) They are new sailboats, with a modern design that are like a new improved version from the old OPTIMIST: easier to assemble, self-emptying, noble reactions, faster and more fun.
