ClubLocarno sailing lessons are taught by CANSail certified instructors. We offer CanSail 1&2 and Cansail 3 certification courses, as well as Catamaran and spinnaker sailing courses.
Participation in all courses is limited, and require a minimum number of members in order to proceed. A course will be rescheduled a week before the start date if minimum participation has not been reached by that time.
Courses are only offered to ClubLocarno Sailing Fleet members, and your position in a course is only confirmed when full payment has been received.
We also offer a refresher course to dust off your sailing skills, including a total of nine hours of instruction. This is designed for sailors with previous skills and experience who have been away from the sport for a while, or who want to improve their existing skills with the help of a dedicated instructor.
