Sailing course on the Côte d'Azur aboard a 15-metre sailboat

Mon expérience lors du stage de voile sur le bateau de Cyril en tant que capitaine a été absolument remarquable. Non seulement Cyril est un instructeur très professionnel, mais il est aussi incroyablement cultivé, gentil et attentionné. Sous sa direction, j'ai eu l'opportunité d'explorer un large éventail de termes nautiques, de mesures et de techniques de nœuds marins, tout en apprenant l'importance cruciale de la sécurité en mer. Sa passion pour la voile est palpable, comme en témoigne sa bibliothèque impressionnante sur le voilier, qui m'a permis d'approfondir mes connaissances et de me plonger dans l'univers de la navigation. Ce qui a vraiment rendu cette expérience spéciale, c'est l'atmosphère chaleureuse et amicale à bord. Cyril a su créer un environnement où nous avons pu non seulement apprendre, mais aussi nous amuser et créer des liens avec les autres membres de l'équipage. De plus, son attention aux détails et son souci du confort ont assuré que chaque moment passé à bord était agréable et enrichissant. En résumé, je recommande vivement Cyril comme instructeur de voile. Sa passion, son professionnalisme et sa gentillesse en font un guide exceptionnel pour toute personne souhaitant apprendre et explorer le monde de la voile.

Si vous souhaitez apprendre à naviguer aux côtés d’un marin chevronné et vivre une expérience personnelle intense : n’hésitez pas ! Embarquez pour un stage sur le voilier de Cyril. Il vous y accueillera avec bienveillance et gentillesse. Il partagera avec vous sa passion pour la mer et le voyage en vous apprenant, avec exigence et patience, tout ce qui est nécessaire à un navigateur débutant. Vous vivrez au rythme du voilier, du vent et de la houle. Vous profiterez de magnifiques paysages et de superbes mouillages après plusieurs heures de navigation, de concentration et de manœuvres. Vous partagerez des moments précieux avec des équipiers qui, quelques jours avant, étaient des inconnus. Vous écouterez les récits de Cyril et ses épopées lointaines et vous prendrez à rêver d’être aussi un jour capitaine …. C’est à n’en pas douter, la magie de la mer et de Solal. C’est en tout cas ce que nous venons de vivre avec mon mari durant 5 jours. Merci Cyril pour ce bout de chemin fait ensemble. Bon vent et longue route à toi !

Tips to help you to better plan for your next sailing course or regatta holiday:

All you need to know about your next sailing cruise.

Learning to sail: how much does it cost?

You can find sailing courses from €150 on weekends and €400 on weekdays. This amount then varies according to several parameters such as the destination, style of the boat and proposed itinerary. Like with any other such experience, the cost of transport to and from the sailing trip, the participation in the ship's cash float (often around €150 per week), as well as the extras during your cruise, such as meals out.

The best destinations for an adult sailing course

Each destination is different and therefore so too are the possibilities. For a weekend sailing course, there is availability in more northern European destinations such as France - including Brittany, the French Riviera, the Atlantic coast. Across the Mediterranean, several areas are particularly well suited for a one-week sailing course: Croatia, the Greek Cyclades, the Balearic Islands, Corsica and Sardinia. For those who wish to combine learning to sail with the sun of the tropics, fly to the Caribbean Sea and sail in the paradise islands of the Grenadines or Guadeloupe.

I am a beginner - I am a pro. Is there an experience for me?

If you have never sailed before and would like to discover this new feeling, we recommend that you head for a discovery trip where you can learn how to steer, hoist, and handle the sails. For those who wish to improve their knowledge - including cartography, meteorology, night navigation, spinnaker, radios - recommend that you go on more technical and longer sailing courses (1 week or more) that will allow you to fully immerse yourself in the manoeuvres and life on board. For the more adventurous, cross the Channel, the Atlantic or the Mediterranean!

Sailing internship: Finally make your dream of learning to sail come true

There are dreams that can now be easily realised - learning to sail is part of it! No special knowledge is required to start sailing with a professional skipper who will gradually transmit his passion and advice to you during sailing courses corresponding to your level. Get ready to share unique experiences with other crew members and enjoy the friendliness of living on board a sailboat.
