Join the Outdoor Events sailing school in Dalarna (Mora) or Stockholm (Hundudden), for adults and teenagers from 16 years. We use the Melges-24 boat which is a racing boat with with jib, main sail and gennaker. The boats are fast but easy to sail and sensitive like a dinghy, which is good for the learning process.

First available dates for English sailing lessons are  from June 6th 2020.

We arrange English courses at dates upon request. Minimum 3 participants per course during weekends. Please send us a mail with your desired dates if you want to be on a list for participating with others if you are alone. You are welcome to borrow sailing clothes + life jacket if you do not have your own equipment (included in the fee).

Price incl VAT per person:
SEK: 2.900: One day 8 hrs.
SEK 3.900: Two days 6+6 hrs.
