Full description

Sailing, propelled by the force of the wind alone, and managing the currents is what you will learn during this 2-day course on Lake Garda.

Accompanied by an instructor in Campione del Garda, you will acquire the basic principles of this fascinating water sport. At the end of the course you will have sufficient knowledge to start sailing independently.

Lessons will take place in small groups of 3-6 people: the perfect opportunity to meet other friends with the same passion as you!

What we will do

The appointment is in Campione del Garda (BS), 10 minutes before the time indicated in the booking.

We will be welcomed by a sailing instructor who will follow us throughout the duration of the course, which will take place over 2 consecutive days.

Lessons will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., with a free hour lunch break, in small groups of 3-6 participants. The backdrop for our course will be the beautiful setting of Lake Garda, along the Brescia shore.

During the first day 's lesson we will be taught the basic principles of sailing, how to handle the rudder and the various controls in relation to the strength of the wind. We will do atheoretical introduction ashore, and then we will all board the instructor's boat and start putting into practice what we have learned.

On the second day we will delve into the practical part to become autonomous in handling the boat. Each participant will be able to practise on a sailboat from 4 to 6 metres in length. At the end of the course we will master basic sailing techniques and receive a certificate of participation.

The course will last a total of 16 hours, including 7 hours of lessons each day with a 1-hour lunch break.
