We are proud of having members of all skill levels in the club. We arrange introductory courses for beginners in the beginning of each semester. If you want to join the club and learn to sail, this is the time.

Member of the club can register to daily skipper led sailings posted in the calendar absolutely free of charge. Experienced sailors can go through skipper training and become skippers themselves, thus being able host club sailings for members and also use boats outside of the sailing schedule. Read more about becoming a skipper here.

Joining the club

BSI Seiling holds introduction courses to sailing for new members twice a year, once in the autumn and once in the spring semester. This course is included in the membership fee and is mandatory new members. (Experienced sailors does not have to do the course, thus being able to join at any time of the year)

The course is an unique opportunity for getting an introduction to sailing. it will give a thorough introduction to sailing and consists of a two-hour theoretical part and one to two a practical sailing sessions on the city fjord. 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 manoeuvre at sea. Each sailing will consist of an experienced skipper and a crew of up to five beginners.

The beginner course will not make you a fully learned sailor (if that even is a thing?), but it gives you understanding and knowledge enough to participate in our club sailings safely. 

Club sailings are posted on the Sailings Calendar in the beginning of each month (each week or more spontaneously during the summer).
