Private instructor on your own sailing boat
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!
