Private sailing course

The idea about private sailing course is simply that you rent boat and instructor from us together with your friends, partner or family. You decide what you wish to learn and in what way, in consultation with us. We can offer sailing courses according to the three general sailing course levels, or make the course suited totally for your needs and wishes.

Who can attend the course?

If you are totally without experience, we will start from the basics. And whatever skills you already might have, we can bring you to the next level.

Content of the course

All of our boats are situated in the archipelago, which makes it simple and natural to practice archipelago sailing and navigation. All of our boats are quick and safe modern yachts with quite a bit of equipment, fast, funny 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 prognoses 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 the private course is that you shall have accomplished and and learned exactly what you wished to look deeper into – and we believe that you will even learn more than you could ever imagine!
