      The calendar for the next sailing season has been announced!

      As spring draws nearer, we are approaching the start of the next sailing season. Expect a fair range of sailing trips, courses and regatta races.

      Although the official inauguration of the sailing season at the Sailing Centre is due on 11 May, the marina in Przestrzenna Street is likely to keep busy until then. If the good weather continues, boats will be launched and training will move out of the building and into the water outdoors. Moving back to what the upcoming season has in store, we now know it will be quite busy. Between April and October, we will organise ten-odd training courses, regatta races, as well as sailing vacations, trips and camps.

      This year, the Sailing Centre is planning to hold as many as twelve Motorboat Helmsman license courses. The first one will take place on the weekend of 12–14 April.

      “The motorboating course is divided into theoretical and practical components. The former covers, among other subjects, motor yacht design, manoeuvring and the basics of piloting, legal regulations and water rescue. During practical classes, course participants will learn motor-yacht steering and operation, anchoring, berthing, crew management, basic sailing knots and essential manoeuvres such as casting off, quay landing, maintaining a straight-ahead course and circling,” said Celina Wołosz, Spokeswoman for the Sailing Centre.  

      Those who pass the Motorboat Helmsman examination receive a license to drive motor boats on inland waterways without length limitations, as well as motor yachts with a length of up to 12 m on inland maritime waters and other maritime waters two nautical miles from the coast during daytime.

      Weekend courses will offer extensive options of obtaining a yacht sailing license.  The courses are intended for adults and will be held on each weekend between May and October.

      “A yacht sailing license can also be obtained during day camps for young people. You need to be at least 14 years old, pass the exam and have your parents’ consent if you are underage,” Wołosz added. 

      Holders of a yacht sailing license may cruise on sailing yachts on inland waterways without length and sail-area limitations, and on sailing yachts up to 12 m in length on inland maritime waters and other maritime waters up to 2 nautical miles from the coast during daytime.

      On 11 May, we will officially start the sailing season and with it, the regatta racing season. This year, the Sailing Centre is planning to organise nine regatta races for the following classes: Optimist, Laser, Finn, Hans 303, 505 and keel yachts. In addition, our marina will host kayak polo players and radio-controlled yachts.

      A lot will be going on also during summer break. We offer active day camps brimming with sporting attractions. Between 01 July and 23 August, we will organise five camps, each five days long and offering active outdoor recreation for kids. They are intended for children and teenagers aged 7 to 14. Campers will learn teamwork, spending time together playing games and having fun in the outdoors. Recruitment starts on 2 April 2024.
