Frequently asked questions

We understand that you may have some questions about our sailing school and the courses we offer. Here are some frequently asked questions that may help address your concerns:

What is ASA certification, and why is it important?

ASA certification is an internationally recognized standard for sailing education. It demonstrates that you have completed a course that meets a specific set of standards and that you have the necessary skills and knowledge to safely operate a sailboat. ASA certification is often required by charter companies and boat rental services.

How do I register for a course?

You can register for a course by visiting our website, e-mail or by calling our office. We will provide you with the necessary information and guide you through the registration process.

What is the difference between private and group lessons?

Private lessons are tailored to your specific needs and schedule, whereas group lessons are taught with a small group of students at a scheduled time.
Private lessons are ideal for individuals who prefer one-on-one instruction or have specific learning needs, while group lessons provide a more social and collaborative learning experience.
