Hei dear members,
I hope you had a great summer. I would like to invite you to participate in a beginners sailing course. If you're curious about sailing, if you wish to sail a boat on your own, or if you just wanna become useful crew on someone elses boat - then a sailing course is what you need to get started.

During a practical sailcourse you'll go through the following important subjects:
- Sailing in every direction
- Chart (map) reading
- Principles for good seamanship
- How to use and operate the motor
- Anchoring, particularly on sway
- Mooring trick's and useful knots
- Setting sails in an optimal way: trimming sails
- Reducing sail-area in gusts and gales - Reefing a sail
- Manouvering; how to enter a harbour and approach a pier
- How to avoid the most common mistakes and possible accidents

What you learn on the course, can also be applied to larger sailboats.

If the course should be ran mid-week, then three evenings of 17:00 to 21:00 is a suitable time.
Otherwise we suggest these hours:
