F.A.Q.

Will I be safe during the course?

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.

Do Ineed any previous experience for the course?

No training is required. The beginners course at the sailing school is attended by students who start all over the ground. Of course, the course starts with the basics, not building on prior knowledge. You can and must learn to sail so that you can navigate the water with confidence. However, we will only really love sailing if our knowledge allows us to enjoy this sport.

What kind of sailing clothes shall I buy?

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.

What is the success rate of the exams?

The condition of obtaining the sailing license, and to pass the exam is to learn the theoretical and practical exam tasks. 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.

What happens if the weather is bad?

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.

When should Istart sailing?

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.

THEY ALREADY SAIL HAPPILY

“It was a great tour! I liked the many varied, exotic locations, the experience of sailing on the high seas on a comfortable navigable scale (Beaufort 1 – 6), the cheerful and relaxed team, and the attitude of the captain. We learned a lot from Balázs, who always explained patiently and in detail what is happening in a given situation and how we can sail safely but at the same time efficiently. The Canary Islands are an ideal place to gather a lot of experience and experience in a short time, so I heartily recommend this tour to those who sail and also to those who have not.”

Demjén Ádám / Budapest

“We were afraid of the team for the first time as we were unknown to each other and that one week of closure seemed scary. Balázs, the captain, put the team together from the beginning, he didn’t give a chance to click. We behaved like a familiar team from day one, and a week later we broke up as friends. And of course the Ocean… We became in love. We will never forget the monumental water, the dolphins, the whales, the waves. We thought our sailing skills would develop the most. But thanks to Balázs, we realized that calmness is more important than anything. This will not be easy to put into practice, but we have seen that it should. Thank You!”

Diriczi Norbert / Budapest

“The instructors are well prepared, friendly, and the practical classes (of which there are plenty) are spent in the atmosphere of a friendly sailing, in addition they prepared me thoroughly for the exam. The boats have an excellent technical and aesthetic condition, I can only recommend it!”

Kiss László / Budapest

“Super instructors, professional team, helpful and experienced instructors. You can choose from a well-equipped and maintained, sophisticated fleet, they are really flexible in everything, there is a boat even when indeed there isn’t. The atmosphere of the training was super, I can only recommend them!”

Poós Krisztián / Budapest

“Young, dynamic, professional team! They taught me everything I needed to be able sail independently and with confidence! The time I spent with them is still an unforgettable memory! I have enriched with friendships lasting until nowadays! Choose them if you want the best!”
