SailAvb Daily

The course takes place from 9:30 am to 18:30 pm from Monday to Friday.


Traditionally, the Associazione Velica di Bracciano organizes summer camps for sailing school for young people aged 6 to 18.

The aim of the course, through a pedagogically correct path, is to achieve autonomy in sailing and to achieve a positive experience of this sport together with other youngsters.

In our office we will carry out both theoretical and practical activities in the waters in front of the club.
The students will be divided into groups based on age and previous experience in sailing: 
a week of course is generally sufficient to learn the basics of this sport,
but we recommend at least two to consolidate the concepts learned.
Our setting allows you to participate in non-consecutive modules.
The boats used are the Optimist for children and for the older ones the laser will be used.
Young athletes can learn while having fun staying overnight in the structure adjacent to the club 
and having breakfast and meals at our Refreshment Point.
The cost, includinglunch, snck and membership to the Italian Sailing Federation is € 230.00 for student.

Course topics:

  1. General nomenclature, sail, hull, drift and rudder.
  2. Boat preparation: arming and disarming.
  3. Government of the boat: stop the boat, gaits, changes of course, turn and pulled down.
  4. Departure and arrival from the beach.
  5. Scuffia tests: overturning and straightening of the boat.
  6. Knots.
