Adult Dinghy Sailing Course

To be a good “big boat sailor” first you must be a good “small boat” sailor. Learning by the seat of your pants is the best way. Jump into the Club’s Pico without any experience and in a few short weeks you will be able to safely pilot your own dinghy. Learn the ropes, the knots and all the tricks! Be prepared to get wet, and bring along your sense of adventure.
