A weekend learning to master sailing, away from the bustle of the city.

This course is aimed at adults who want to start in the world of sailing, The student will assimilate the basic notions of sailing: rig the boat, pick it up and navigate in all directions.

At the end of the course the student should be prepared to navigate with moderate wind under the supervision of an instructor. After this introductory course, the student will be prepared to take a second level course whose objective is to navigate autonomously.

The students of the course will be able to register later in the club of the reservoir, that will allow them to sail in the boats of the club by an annual quota.

    We had a great time and enjoyed the day on the water and out of it. The worst, the queues to eat and the traffic jam to get there. The best, the attention of all the staff.
