Experienced sailors who would like to become skippers

New Beginner Course Autumn 2020!

Time: 18.00 – 21.00.

Location: Fosswinckelsgate 6, the small auditorium in the Social Science Faculty (samfunnsvitenskapelig fakultet).

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. Remember to join our Facebook group to stay updated on events.

The course will give a thorough introduction in sailing and consists of a two-hour theoretical part and a practical sailing session on the city fjord. You will be able to sign up for the practical part at 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.

*THE BEGINNER COURSE IS NOW FULL* We hope to see you next semester!
