SUMMER SAILING SCHOOL 2018


Every year JK Pirat organizes summer sailing courses for classes »Optimist« and »OpenBic«. The courses are meant for children aged between 7 and 14. The only prerequisite for the courses is, the child has to be an able swimmer. 

SAILING SCHOOL GOALS:

Our coaches are highly motivated and will provide a curriculum with current and effective techniques. We would like to impart a love of sailing as a lifetime sports while providing the fundamental skills in sailing and seamanship in an environment that is safe and funny. The students will learn new sailing skills through experiencing and games.

LEARNING ACTIVITIES:

  • learn fundamental sailing skills on »Optimist« and »OpenBic«
  • sailing on »Feva« in a »two men crew«
  • learn fundamentals of seamanship
  • swimming and divers swimming games
  • observations of the marine environment and its changes
  • learning basic »marine knots« and getting to know the »wind rose«
  • learning what good sportsmanship means, and making lifetime friendships

AT THE END OF THE COURSE

every child get his/her »final diploma«. The best among new sailors will be invited to join the advanced course, and will perhaps be interested in joining our optimist team as racing members of the club. In addition all the sailors will be kindly invited to take part, as competitors, in the yearly »beginners regatta« that's being organized at the end of the summer holidays (usually on the first weekend of september).
