Thanks to the sailing school’s syllabus and the profound, professional education, 90% of our students passes the exam for the first try, therefore you can see that is possible to obtain the sailing license for the first try. Our training includes the practical material with increased number of hours which cannot be replaced with studying at home. It is really important for us that all our students shall have sufficient practical knowledge. The proportion of students failing the practical exam is insignificant in Füredyacht sailing school.

You can buy sailing clothes at any nautical shops where you can buy everything from breathable clothes to sunglasses with chameleon lens. However, it is unnecessary to spend multiple times the price of the sailing course on your clothes for the first time. Indeed good quality sunglasses are essential. Due to the reflection of water, it is important to protect your eyes with good quality lens during sailing. Later, if you really go sailing frequently, it is worth investing in quality clothes, too.

At the FüredYacht course, there were professional instructors, with real knowledge base that can be used well in practice, too. There was a very good atmosphere at the course, in a very beautiful environment. For my part, I have stayed here in the harbour already for four years.
