The taster course is the easiest way to slowly approach this fascinating sport. You probably stood on the shore and thought when watching the sailboats gliding over the water: “I would like to try that out too!” This is exactly what happens at the sailing trial course.
In the company of an experienced sailing instructor you go on board. After a short introduction you will hoist the sails and leave the dock. You slide over the water and feel the wind and the waves. You will get a feeling for the boat after a few minutes on the water. You are allowed to try out everything.
You operate the sails and steer the boat on your own for a time. You sail the different points of sail, but also the first manoeuvres. Maybe you go to the limits of the boat for a short time and realise how much fun that can be. Because the instructor is on-board everything stays absolutely relaxed and you can concentrate on enjoying the new impressions.
Sailing trial courses are offered after work or on weekends. Such a course might last some hours, a whole day or even two days. The more time you take for it the surer you are afterwards that sailing is the sport you want to learn to.
