Sailing course syllabus

When doing a sailing course it is certainly a good idea to check and recheck again what the sailing course syllabus is containing. A beginner course can be as simple as dinghy sailing with different subjects emphasized or a more closer experience to ocean sailing as we offer in our ocean hiker sailing course which is a slight extended version of a standard competent crew course.
