In case of sailing, as for all water sports, swimming skills are essential. Sailing is not among the dangerous sports, bur accidents may occur due to the weather conditions and human carelessness. When starting the sailing course, we hold a training on safety and call your attention to the eventual emergency situations. The mandatory water rescue equipment, like life-jacket, life-buoy, boathook, is part of the equipment on our boats. It is always recommended to wear the life-jacket, however it is mandatory in strong wind.

Yes, our Charter Preparation Course is for those who has already got their boat driving license so they have some practical experience with sailing but they have not enough confidence renting a boat on their own.

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.

During the season, on Balaton the biggest problem is caused by the lull as you cannot sail at this time. However, too strong wind (above 90 km/h) can also cause problems. Until wind can teach us, we always go on water as even in case of stormy wind, we can learn something. At our sailing school, in these cases we sail in life-jacket with reduced sail area, and in case of lull, we learn theory and rope work in the harbour.

Sailing is among the sports which can be generally characterized by being ageless. Mostly people around the age of 20-40 apply to our courses but there are often students above 50 in our school. We organize camp for children and team building thanks to which people of all age-groups have been already in our school. In general it can be stated that the majority of our students is man but there are some women in each course.
