Our shallow and calm waters are excellent for teaching beginners. We have all the appropriate equipment; the teaching system has been in use for 25 years and has a 99% successful outcome. Our passionate and experienced instructors are dedicated to get you going as soon as possible!


Do you only have a little bit of experience and want to, for example, improve your harness skills or learn the basics of water starting? Talk to one of our instructors so we can set up an intermediate lesson and take you out on the water.


If you are an advanced sailor, we mean in the harness, doing deep water starts etc, talk to our instructors if you would like to work on skills like getting into the foot straps without losing speed, faster jibe exits or maybe basic freestyle moves. We’re up for it!

The only way to go is out sailing!
