BEGINNERS SAILING COURSE in ålesund
Learn how to sail
JOLLY GOoD TIMES SAILING
On the sailing trip you get to experience a lot, sail and learn a lot about sailing. You will learn how to dock and leave the quay, manoeuvring in port, sailing in different wind angles, navigation with maps and chart plotters, sea rules, mooring and use of different knots, anchoring and anchoring techniques, role distribution and organization on board and what it takes to to create a good team where everyone can contribute. If the weather allows it, we may even reach far.
This course is a beginner's course where we go through basic techniques and build sailing knowledge from there.
No prior knowledge is required in advance.
We meet up in Brosundet and get the boat ready for departure. Then we select the route depending on the weather forecast.
If we sail inland northbound, we are quite sheltered from the sea up to a little south of Ona / Husøy.
The same applies south to Stadt, but sheltered to a somewhat lesser extent.
The weather is not controlled so you have to expect and accept that it is windless and that it can feel like it is blowing a little too much sometimes.
Regardless of what experience you have with you before, the course will make you a better sailor / woman at record speed and you will actively contribute to the team on the boat. Everyone gets to try their hand at all positions and contribute to good unity and teamwork on board.
If the weather should be extra bad, we reserve the right to change the date of the course.
