Basic courses in sailing dinghies, learn how to sail from the real basics of sailing

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 sailor 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 and wetsuits for all participants.
The courses will give you the Sailing Certificate 1. (Sailing certificates for an additional fee, see the booking site.)

Five days course with accomodation! This year Sailstar once again will be at Gistholmen for sailing courses! We have been there many years since the start 2010 and now we return after Gistholmen has been renovated and reconstructed. Two weeks, week 32 and 33 we will have our courses at Gistholmen with both our dinghies and the Diva 24 keelboats. The courses will be 5 days each. Read more (In Swedish)
