What you'll do

Discover the handling of a Sailboat, or to gain experience on the various maneuvers required on board, Sailing Courses are tailored to your wishes and objectives in Private Lessons, and at best according to all in Group Lessons. Sailing lessons also take into account your level as well as the weather. Over several sessions, we will see the technique of tacking, jibing, holding the helm, the sail settings, the use of winches, cleats, ropes, but also the sea life aboard while traveling, in navigation, at the dock, at anchor, the use of the electronics instruments and a nautical chart, the rules of road at sea, the markings, as well as safety in every sense of the word ......... and much more ......... it is so vast because if you wish, you will be able to participate in the whole life of the boat by tinkering it if necessary, such as plumbing, electricity, mechanics, seamanship, sail repairs if possible, stratification, gel-coat, fairing, ......... You see, there is nothing to be bored! ...!

Where you'll be

The departure is from the Marina of St. François. Navigation begins in the channel of the lagoon before leaving by the Champagne Pass. We will sail along the Pointe des Chateaux, more or less far to go, but much closer to the return. We will return by the lagoon before returning to find our place at the Marina.

Activity advisory

Outdoor activities carry risks, and you may be exposed to dangerous situations as part of this experience. Make sure you can participate safely given your abilities and the conditions (such as location, weather, and equipment).

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 5 guests ages 8 and up can attend. If at any time you feel uncomfortable with the navigation, we will be able to change the program, see the return sooner, with the agreement of all, and maybe even stop at the lagoon if we have the time.

What to bring

Fresh water

More tips

Activity for neophytes or regular sailors: I adapt navigation according to the levels and motivations of all. At any time the program may change if you wish.
