Full description

Take your first steps into the world of sailing with a one-hour lesson in Riccione.

Together with a certified instructor, you will board a small sailing boat called a 'drift', particularly suitable for those approaching this discipline for the first time. You will learn the basics of sailing, from winds to basic manoeuvres.

We are waiting for you!

What we will do

The meeting is at the beach in Riccione (RN). After introductions, I will take you on board the Tridente 16, a small sailing boat called a 'drift', ideal for those approaching the world of sailing.

We will begin with the first theoretical part, in which I will explain the main notions about this discipline, starting with winds and nomenclature. While sailing, we will continue to look at the technical names and how to distribute weight correctly on board, and then move on to the basic manoeuvres.

In addition to theory, there will be plenty of practice: you will be able to try your hand at operating the rudder yourself and feel like a real captain! I will be at your side to advise you and ensure your safety.

Finally, we will return to the starting point. The lesson lasts 1 hour.

Who it is aimed at

The activity is suitable for everyone from the age of 7. Minors must be accompanied by an adult. Swimming skills required.

The boat is not wheelchair accessible.
