We are proud of having members of all skill levels in the club. For beginners we have introductory courses and beginner’s sailing. Experienced sailors can enjoy benefits such as using the boats outside of the sailing schedule and joining advanced sailing sessions.

Next Beginner Course in August/September 2018


BSI Sailing offers all its members a free sailing course. It’s an unique opportunity for getting an introduction to sailing. The sailing course is held twice a year, once in the autumn and once in the spring semester. Keep yourself updated on our main page and remember to join our Facebook group.

The course will give a thorough introduction in sailing and consists of a two-hour theoretical part and a practical sailing session at the Byfjord. You will be able to sign up for the practical part (the sail trip) on the theory course. The sessions will take place in the two-three weeks following the theoretical course. There, you will learn about how to prepare the boat for sailing, what the functions of all the different ropes are, and how to maneuver at sea. Each sailing will consist of an experienced skipper and up to five beginners acting as the boat’s crew.

After the beginner’s course, you have of course not yet learned everything, that’s why you can sign up for the daily member’s sailings throughout the semester at no extra cost.

Experienced sailors who would like to become skippers
How to become a member
We strongly encourage all beginners to take the theory course before going out on the fjord. Proof of payment has to be shown at the theory course in order to be able to participate.

However, if you would like to join us before that, you can sign up as an “early starter” at a slightly higher member fee. Be aware that there are no regular member sailings in July and August since most skippers are on holiday, so there is very limited sailing activity.

Becoming a member is simple – just fill out the PAYMENT FORM. (It is NOT possible to use regular bank transfer or any other payment method – please contact us if you have problems with your payment.)
