Sailing Academies for kids
At our sailing academy there are available introductory and advanced courses in Optimist & Laser 4.7 dinghies, conducted in groups by certified sailing instructors.
The Optimist sailing academy is offered to for kids from age 7 (basic swimming knowledge is required) to age 15.
The Laser 4.7 sailing academy is offered from age 15 and is a popular option for young sailors leaving the optimist class due to its age limit.
The introductory program in both dinghies has a duration of two hours at each class, and meets two to three times a week. It includes learning of skills, sailing theory, nautical knots, reading the wind, sailing and safety rules etc.
After completing a sufficient amount of time in the introductory program and with good comprehension and usage of sailing skills and theory, the athletes move on to the advanced program.
The advanced program requires longer time of training at each class and with more specific training, and learning of rules in sailing races in order to participate.
