We have seen a demand from people that wants to start race with their boats but it can be a long way to actually go to a race with little or none knowledge of what is required from you. This racing course is both theoretical and practical and is held over one evening and one weekend. The course walk you thru different types of racing, courses, starting, racing rules to care about, but also some tactics and trimming of your boat.

  • Sailstar returns to Gistholmen 2020!

    After a few years away from Gistholmen Sailstar now returns for two weeks

    Since the start of Sailstar in 2010 we have had sailing courses at the small but beautiful island Gistholmen in the middle of Stockholm archipelago. Some years up to five weeks in a row with multiple courses. Gistholmen has been closed for some years due to maintenance and reconstruction of cottages, water and sewer and the sauna. It is now opened again and Sailstar will be there two weeks with both dinghies and the mid-size keelboats. Sailstar will be there week 32 and 33. See more information about Gistholmen here.
