Summer Sailing Camps
For the last 3 weeks SailLaser have had over 40 students on our sailing camps.
The first week started with our busiest camp to date, with 22 students! All where complete beginners and have never sailed before. SailLaser and Circolo Vela Torbole joined together and organised this camp for free camp for all local children. Our aim is to increase participation in sailing by making it more accessible.
This week we have 14 students on a Beginner camp and 3 students on an Advanced camp. The Beginner camp cover stage 1&2 and includes all the basics of rigging, launching and tacking. The Advanced camp covers Spinnaker and performance and includes hoisting, dropping and gybing.
Week 3 was racing! The students completed the Race camp, which involved Intro to laser and start racing. A mini regatta finished the week off allowing all the students to show off their new skills!
The evenings were also filled with activities. High ropes, mini golf, beach Olympics and walks on the beach meant the students had very full days!
SailLaser run adult courses to get everyone involved in sailing. Whether you are a complete beginner or have some sailing experience we have courses for all levels of ability. The courses are accredited by the RYA (Royal Yachting association), which means we use a set sailing scheme, which is known world wide. On successful completion of the course students receive a RYA certificate. Our courses range from 2 – 5 days and consist of some land based theory sessions but mostly on water practical lessons. The day starts at 9:00 and finishes at 5:00.
Below are the courses we offer:
RYA Level 1
RYA Level 2
RYA Level 3

Glide free laser foiling is a unique and unforgettable experience!
In 2015 SailLaser began to offer Glide Free Laser foiling courses. We have two courses that will teach you the necessary theory and practical skills to foil the Laser!
Foiling Level 1 covers how to set the sails, basics of how the foil works and take off. By the end of 2 days we would like students to have a understanding of foils and the experience of taking off for the first time.
Foiling Level 2 covers setting the foils for different conditions, what rig to use and how to keep the boat level once you have taken off.
Below is a link to the Glide Free website with technical information from the designers themselves!
