Dinghy sailing

Sailstar's core is our sailing dinghy courses, which we started 2010. Since then, thousands of children and adults have participated in our dinghy classes. Learning to sail in a dinghy is very intuitive and what we consider the best way to learn sailing. Dinghy sailing is definitely not just for children but a fun tool for sailing! We sail with singlehanded dinghies - Laser BUG and doublehanded dinghies - RS Zest. Both are made of Comptec polycomposite and very durable and safe, unsinkable. Our base is at Viggbyholm, Täby.
We have life jackets, wetsuits and helmets for all participants.
The courses will give you the Sailing Certificate 1. (Sailing certificates for an additional fee, see the booking site.)
