Why Dinghy Sailing?

  • Because it is practised in Nature
  • Because it is only you who pilots the boat through the sea and wind
  • Because the frame where it is practised is ideal.
  • Because you can both practise this activity as leisure or as a sport.

The UV and the Escuela Municipal de Vela in Valencia offer you since this first term the possibility of discovering this new navigating experience and deepen in the knowledge of this sport.

Come sail with us, it will be an unforgettable experience!

Beginner’s course in Dinghy Sailing

Beginner’s course in Dinghy Sailing consists on discoveries and knowledge on the basic features of this sport. Dinghy Sailing learning consists of three levels which will enable progress until we reach a point of autonomy when we can make of sailing our sport, our leisure or our work.

Recommendations for the students to develop this activity:

  • Comfortable clothes: tracksuits, shorts, t-shirts and something to cover yourself, windbreak jackets, in case of bad weather and to protect oneself from the wind. Neoprene is advisable.
  • We advise you wear your swimsuit as the underwear.
  • Extra set of clothes.
  • A towel and hygiene tools, flip-flops for the shower.
  • Cap, glasses (with security protection to avoid losing them) and sun cream.
  • Shoes or trainers with non-slip sole, attached to the feet and which can be wet (no flip-flops).
  • Water or juice.
