Full description

Learn to drive a sailboat and experience an unparalleled feeling of freedom as you sail the open sea off the Ligurian Riviera.

Departing from Savona, you will spend two days in the Gulf of Tigullio or on the Riviera di Ponente and learn the basic techniques of sailing together with an experienced skipper.

Step by step you will become increasingly familiar with the boat and learn to know the wind better and better. Get ready for a mini-cruise in which you will be the captain!

What we will do

We will meet at 9:00 am at the port of Savona and first hold an introductory briefing on the activities of the two days. Then we will arm the boat and start sailing towards the Gulf of Tigullio or , alternatively, towards Alassio and the Riviera di Ponente.

During the two-day course, we will focus on acquiring the basic techniques for sailing, with the aim of learning all the manoeuvres needed to be able to steer the boat independently on a medium-short route.

We will learn how to use the GPS for navigation, how to adjust the sails according to the wind, how to moor and manoeuvre in and out of ports, and how to handle emergency situations.

Towards sunset we will dock in port and can spend the evening relaxing on board the boat or in town (the possibility of sleeping on board will depend on the anti-Covid regulations in force at the time).

The next morning we will resume sailing for a new day of sailing lessons, with the aim not only of learning as much as possible but also of enjoying the beautiful sea of the Ligurian Riviera.

The activity ends in the late afternoon on Sunday, with the return to the port of Savona.

Who it is aimed at

This activity is at an easy level and is open to children aged 8 years and up, accompanied by an adult.

Other information

This activity can be carried out all year round, weather permitting, and is confirmed upon reaching a minimum of 3 participants.

12-metre sailing cabin cruisers will be used for the course.

The possibility of sleeping on board the boat does not entail additional costs and will be agreed upon after booking, according to the anti-Covid regulations in force at the time of the activity. Alternatively, it is always possible to spend the night ashore (costs to be borne by participants).

If this is your very first sailing experience, we recommend starting with a half-day introductory course .
