Summer Sailing School

The COYCH sailing school offers courses that will allow you to go wherever you want on the water with sufficient mastery of your boat.

Supervision on the water is provided by COYCH-qualified instructors (federal and state instructors) who also train our competition teams all year round on different supports.

These courses are based on a technical and pedagogical progression composed of exercises that will help you evaluate your progress and inform you of the difficulties to be overcome in order to progress better. Theoretical lessons are also given every day before and after the sea trips. At the end of the course, you will be given a national booklet, certifying the level acquired and valid in all French Sailing Schools.
