Tuition and Rental

Special boats have been designed taking into account the sailor's comfort and safety. Children, teenagers, youngsters, adults, and whole families, irrespective of their age, sex, built or level of fitness, have the opportunity to get to know the wonderful sport of sailing. At the same time, people already familiar with sailing will definitely jump at the chance to practice or even race with their friends enjoying the perfect sailing conditions of Thermaikos gulf.

Using ISAF recommended equipment and following the strictest safety rules and the RYA guidelines, our experienced staff introduced hundreds satisfied visitors to the sailing experience. The student from the very first lesson gets in the boat on his own, with the instructor close by. In this way the student is "doomed" to learn and more importantly to become independent so as to be able at the end of the course to sail all alone
