Our sailing courses are taught in safety and always supervised by our instructors. It is important to always listen carefully to their suggestions and advise and follow their lead. During the course you will wear a safety vest or belt any time it is necessary and you will sail on stable and safe boats, always suitable for you. Orza Scuola Vela is anyhow well-equipped to face little first-aid accidents. For other cases, medical assistance will be called immediately.
You will see that you will not even realize it and, at the end of the course, you will not want to leave! Some blisters on your hands or extra dips out of the program will be the first stories to share with your friends at home!
No, you will not make too much effort, boats of first level do not require excessive efforts.

During the course for beginners the program is pretty light and gives plenty of opportunity to have fun.
You will find a very informal environment, so bring casual and sporty outfits.
