What are we going to do

Dinghy sailing is a great sport! Come to the Björkholm island and learn a new skill. We have dinghy sailing introduction courses for children and adults.

The course starts with a lesson on land where you learn the essential sailing skills in the simulator. After the lesson we use the new skills on water with optimist or Laser sail boats. Participants take turns on the sailing boats during the exercises. We will be sailing on water for 1,5-2 hours. After the sailing we have coffee/tea in the harbour cafe.

If the wind conditions are not appropriate for sailing we keep the right to postpone or cancel the course. If the event is cancelled by the organizer we will refund the full course fee.

English courses for adults are held on Mondays and Wednesdays from mid June till September.

2 hour sailing event for a family (1-2 adults and 1-3 children) 95,-
