Dear Members, this sailing event ⛵️🏝 is so much fun and informative. We decided to do it biweekly!! So no worries if you missed it.

Believe me cold 🥶 doesn’t bother at all!

This event is an introductory session for 2 hours. Each person will take turns to practice. We will have maximum of 8 people in each boat. 150TL per person. This amount will be collected for the boat rental, and the instructor.

Who Should Take This Introductory Course?
-- I have never been sailing.
-- I’ve been sailing a couple of times as someone’s guest, but I couldn’t tell you the difference between a close tack and a broad reach.
-- I’m not interested in taking a sailing class at this time, but I would like to know enough to be helpful on a sailboat.
-- I’ve enrolled in a basic sailing class, but I’d like to get a solid head start before my first on-the-water lesson.
-- I like to meet new people and have fun.

After completing this session, you’ll understand how a sailboat works, the common commands used to steer one and some basic sailing terminology. You’ll not only get the most out of your time on the water, but also be able to actively participate in the magic of sailing!

Lessons will start in March. Every Saturday or Sunday or some after work hours, depending on our group schedule, each session will be for 3 hours and with 4 sessions, 12 hours total.

We will have different groups; Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced.

We will be providing all the necessary "special" outfit during sailing to protect you from the cold, wind, and rain.

The boats are Protected content Protected content Azure33. They are CE certified. Each boat has two cabins, toilet, shower, kitchen and dining space.

Our route will be Sarayburnu or Princess Islands, depending on the wind.

After completing each level, you will be able to get the International Yacht license "IYT".

GOOD NEWS is that this will be an ongoing training with the International license granted at the end of completion. That means you can SAIL from Mediterranean all the way to the Caribbean!
