Private sailing course

Private sailing course

Kvällssegling 6

Do you want to learn to sail on your own, with family or with friends? Do you want to set up your own content? Then a private sailing course is for you!

You simply rent a boat with instructor and, in consultation with us, decide what you wish to learn and how. We can offer sailing courses according to the three general Swedish sailing course levels, or completely adapt the course to your needs and wishes.

Who can attend the course?

If you have no experience, we will start from the basics. And whatever skills you already might have, we can bring you to the next level. The age limit for taking part is 16 years.

Content of the course

Since all our boats are situated in the Stockholm archipelago, it’s simple and natural to practice archipelago sailing and navigation. Our boats are owned by our instructors and they are sized 35-36 feet. They are safe, well equipped and fast yachts and they are all fun and easy to sail.

If you wish to tailor your course towards any special goal, here are some examples:

  • You may be a total beginner and wish to get some guidance to be able to take your boat out of the docks for the first time, and get some advice regarding all those lines and equipment.
  • You can learn how to plan a route through the archipelago and how to find a safe natural harbor for the night according to weather forecasts and chart information.
  • Or focus on sailtrim to go safe and fast. Or to hoist and use a spinnaker. Or sailing at night, led by lighthouses and buoys… Or train safe maneuvering in a harbor. It’s your choice!

The goal of a private course is that you shall have accomplished and learned what you wished to look deeper into – and we believe that you will even learn more than you could imagine!

How long does it take to learn how to sail?

It depends on the person – we are all different learners – but generally, the first sailing course serves as an introduction to the tools and the secrets of sailing. To get a broader understanding and to be able to safely handle a boat on your own you will need more time. However, after a first course you are ready to start training on your own!

For a private regular sailing course for beginners we recommend two days, if you are two persons. If you are three or four, we recommend that you book three days. If you wish only a brief introduction to sailing, one day will do the job!

About our boats and skippers

When you take a course with Vind o Vatten you meet sailing instructors who are passionate about what they do, who instruct on their own boats and who nourish a close relationship with the Stockholm archipelago. You will be sailing a well equipped and comfortable boat sized about 35-36 feet. We provide wind- and waterproof clothing and comfortable life vests.

Our instructors are well educated and experienced – they have Ship’s Officer class VIII and have long experience from archipelago sailing, sail racing and off shore sailing. Since we sail our own boats, we know them well!

You bring your own lunch or let us provide the lunch for you at a price of 165 SEK – we collaborate with local deli for catering. Coffee/tea and snack is included.

We are available both in Stockholm and in Gothenburg!

To bring a private instructor/coach on board your own boat is a brilliant way for you and your family or friends to learn all you need to safely take your boat out on the waters. Perhaps you just bought your very first boat and wish to go through the basics? We help you to check the rigging and advice you on how to safely manoeuvre and dock the boat, as well as how to put up the sails and make the most out of its sailing capacities. In short, we are happy to help you make the most out of your own boat!

A sail coach can also be used to raise your competence to the next level. A course focusing on your spinnaker equipment? A review of the boat prior to your first race, or perhaps taking on board our super trimmer to help you maximize speed and trim? Or are you in for a special treat when it comes to navigating in the archipelago? 

We really enjoy coaching in a personal way and we have lots of competence in our team!

Enjoy a shorter tour that lets you try your hand at sailing, but still have time for other activities, such as kayaking or getting a delicious meal in Dalarö. You will still have enough time to experience the real archipelago of islets and rocks!

We leave the harbour in the morning, or after lunch, and enter immediately into the unique archipelago world made up by islands and islets. Dalarö is right out there! During the four hours of sailing, we take time to enjoy a snack and a cup of steaming fresh coffee. If we are lucky we might spot a sea eagle or a seal. We are back in time for lunch or for dinner, so that you can try out one of Dalarö’s nice eateries.

Sailing can be a lovely way to relax after a day in town – join us for a sunset sailing tour in the unique archipelago of Stockholm!

Within one hour from the city centre, you can enjoy a 3-hour sailing tour that takes you out to the islands surrounding Dalarö. In spring and in autumn, you will experience the evening dusk and maybe sail during sunset. In the height of summer, the Swedish evenings are long and light, with extended magical twilight hours.

No previous sailing experience is needed. This tour is suitable if you want to try out sailing for a shorter amount of time, or just get to relax on board a sailing boat. You book the entire boat for you and your family or friends.

The skipper will prepare a sandwich and coffee/tea or cold drinks and fruit – according to the temperature and the weather conditions.
