Sailing Technique Week

27 MAY 2021

Develop your sailing and learn new techniques from our qualified instructors at our wonderful Samos resort.

Many people have some basic knowledge and experience of dinghy sailing but would like to be able to sail better, faster and learn new skills. If you can already tack, gybe and make your way round a triangular course and want to improve your sailing in the beautiful, warm Aegean sea, then this is the week for you!

Learning to race is an excellent way to improve your sailing skills and will give you the confidence to join in with your local sailing club’s racing activities. Over four half-day sessions, we will cover skills such as starting, boat speed and handling, racing strategy and rules and will include some practice races for fun.

During the week our highly qualified and experienced instructors will also be running a series of clinics. You are welcome to attend any of the clinics to fit in with your other holiday activities, just let us know if you would like to join any of the following as spaces are limited:

  • Sailing with spinnakers
  • Trapezing (using our stable catamarans)
  • Performance sailing
Powerboat Level 2 Course

If you do plan to become more involved in sailing, why not join us the week before (21 May) for the RYA Powerboat Level 2 course? Most sailing clubs require their volunteer safety boat drivers to have this qualification. This course will be £150 per person.

Sherian Brown Profile - Sailing

I really love sailing and being on the water. My hope is that I can teach and encourage others to get as much pleasure and sense of achievement as I do from harnessing the wind and tide to best effect. And what better place to learn and improve one’s sailing skills than the beautiful warm waters of the Aegean?
