Our training is a fun effective way to prepare you for the practical exam. During the lessons we will discuss the required maneuvers and exercises: Setting sails, Sailing efficiently on every point of sail, man overboard drills, picking up moorings, docking, heaving-to, communication with the crew and maritime vocabulary, among other things. Licencing requires about fifteen hours of training.

The exam is done on the same boat as the one on which you will have taken your marks. We offer the possibility to take the license in French or English. The license is required to sail on a sailboat with a sail area greater than 15 m2. The practical exam is done after the theory. Registration for the theory is done at the cantonal vehicle service.
