Make your dream of becoming a sailor come true!
Dinghy Sailing Step I is a course designed for both total beginners and those with little experience.
Everyday after a morning coffee in the club we will teach you sailing fundamentals that will help you survive the practical part Lectures in Amarilla Sailing Club are always fun and engaging. We will cover all most important topics, but if you want to learn about something specific just ask your instructor.
Definitely the exciting part of a day is sailing. For beginners we use RS Zest dinghies- great 1 or 2 person dinghies, very stable and easy to handle or bigger Sigmas. Even though Sigmas don’t capsize, in stronger winds they will give you a shot of adrenaline.
Dinghy sailing unlike yachting is very physical, you will definitely get wet and we promise you will fall in love with it .
For those who prefer more stable yachts, Sigmas will be a great option.
Our Tenerife Dinghy Sailing courses are super exciting!Our instructors are experienced professional coaches, Tenerife is always sunny and warm, we treat every student individually and the atmosphere here is just the best .
