How long:14 days
What kind: one week residential course on a dinghy and one week itinerant course on a cabin cruiser.
Who: people who would like to approach sailing for the first time or with very few experience.
Course Description: one week at our camp to learn the basic notion of sailing on modern dinghies and then board on a wonderful cruise to continue learning.
During the first week the sailing course takes place in the Porto Pollo bay and it teaches the basic knowledge on how to lead these fun boats as helmsman or bowman. On your second week you can set sail and continue aboard our Nytec '23 in flotilla. These sailboats have a shallow draft that allow to discover the wonderful Strait of Bonifacio between Sardinia and Corsica.
Every sailboat hosts one instructor and 3 students. The course will not be only about tacking and jibing, but also sailing from island to island, anchoring, maneuvering and sleeping unforgettable nights at anchor. Besides sailing along the coast, the course offers some excursions on land, stops on spectacular beaches and all the fun related to sea flotilla camping.
Living sparely on board will require some spirit of adaptation, but you will get so much fun out of it!
