Jollensegeln mit Europa Surf and Sail, Gardasee

Ben and Libby Jackson and Lily Eckstein completed their RYA Stages 1 and 2  with us during the week of October 11th.  Their initial work was in our larger dinghies, the Omega and the Argo, but here are the photos of them completing later elements of the course in the Toppers.

RYA Stages 1 and 2 course in October 2016

The Topper is a great single-handed boat for juniors or adults. Less powerful than a Laser it can be sailed with a 5.3m mainsail or a 4.2m both of which can be reefed for lighter sailors or windy days.

RYA Stages - 1, 2, 3 or 4 - you choose how far to go!

The RYA stages are designed for younger sailors, normally up to 14 years of each and provide a progression from zero to hero! Stage 1 is aimed at introducing juniors to the sport of sailing and can be completed either in a crewed boat such as the Argo or single-handed in the Topper (in lighter winds).

Stage 2 allows a junior sailor in a single-handed boat to demonstrate the skills of sailing alone and in a group. Stage 3 introduces a little theory and refines the skills, ensuring that the sailor can sail on all points of sailing, safely. Successful completion of Stage 3 is roughly equivalent to an adult Level 2 certificate.

Stage 4 covers the same ground as RYA adult Level 3 and is all about good boat handling without direct supervision in a variety of boats and wind conditions.

To see our range of dinghies go here and for our sailing courses, go here.

Das Europa-Flotte wurde in Kraft für die neusten Social-Regatta am Gardasee des FVM. Topaz Katamarane, Argos, Omegas und ein Uno waren alle unter den Kabinenboote und Optimisten sichtbar.

Ein großer Spaß für alle an einem heißen und sonnigen Tag. Das Schlauchboot Veranstaltung wurde von unseren Freunden Michele und Paola in einem ISO gewann aber jeder gut gesegelt und hatten einen tollen Tag.

Jollensegeln am Gardasee mit David aus den USA und Marianne und Sunny aus Australien in eines Argo. Sie nahmen eine Pause von Reisen und Klettern in Süd Tirol. Schönes Segeln Jungs und wir hoffen, das Klettern auf Nord gut läuft (David) und die Rückfahrt gut war (Sunny, Marianne).

Monday 05/18/2015 30 juniors in the first grade of Leonardo da Vinci middle school spent a day with us. They enjoyed a beautiful bike ride to visit Malcesine and its castle and catamaran and dinghy sailing! The sun and the wind made for an exciting day and none hesitated to enjoy the speed and thrills from high-speed catamarans with water spraying over everyone as the boats bounced over the waves. Everyone had a try at steering the boats and many also used the trapezes to experience  the excitement of crewing modern dinghies and catamarans! Some adrenaline and lots of laughter accompanied the trips, watched over by their school staff. The day ended with the students singing a song in English ("If you're happy and you know it ....") ! A beautiful day successful thanks to Prof. Zampieri (Giuly to us) who accompanied the kids, organized everyone and helped out with launching and recovery as well as taking the photographs above. Thanks also to the kids for joining in so enthusiastically and making our job easy! Thanks to the Leonardo da Vinci School of Verona for the wonderful day!
