Marina di Asfodeli
Our sailing school aims to bring young people closer to the sea by transmitting love and respect for the environment that surrounds us.
The guiding principle of our work is the protection of the environment and the preservation of our ecosystem. Transmitting the sailing culture becomes therefore a mission with the aim of transmitting the love for the sea and its preservation in young people.
We organize different levels courses throughout the year.
During summer (starting from June) the courses become summer camps that give the possibility to children and teenagers, from 6 to 17 years of age, to live a full immersion experience in the sea all day long. From Monday to Friday from 9AM to 4PM young sailors will be involved in training and in different recreational activities linked to the sea and sailing. Lunch at the restaurant of our Marina is included in the cost of participation. A shuttle service is available for picking up and bringing back the youngsters.
There is also the possibility to follow one-to-one courses with a private teacher where the youngster will choose his boat and start his personalized teaching.
The day begins with a theoretical-practical lesson, which always maintains a playful spirit and creates socialization, but is very formative for young people, constantly followed and supervised by federal instructors in water and qualified people ashore. The aim of these courses is the participation of the students in the pre-competitive and competitive teams to compete in FIV (federal Italian sailing organization) Regattas.
