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.
PLEASE NOTE: Proof of payment has to be shown at the theory course in order to be able to sign up for beginner sailing sessions – either have the receipt e-mail on your smartphone or print it out!
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.
We strongly encourage all beginners to take the theory course before going out on the fjord.
