What you'll do

It’s wonderful if you have a friend with a yacht who can teach you sailing. Unfortunately, most of us don’t have such acquaintances and therefore yachting remains a “locked” area for us. And why should it be? You can go for a ride or get into sailing basics. The charm of sailing has conquered the hearts of many people who once steps abroad the yacht.

If you want to get out on the water for a couple of hours, I offer you to enroll in my special «Discover sailing in Bulgaria» course for 2 hours. This is available for everyone who wants to start learning how to steer a sailing yacht.

I will comfortably take you on board and will show you everything you need for your first steps as a sailing crew member. You will have the opportunity to get the first knowledge of steering a sailing yacht on the Black Sea. The course combines a little theoretical training with some practical skills. You can also be a ride for relaxing and enjoying the scenery during which you will get the positive emotions of traveling on a sailing boat.

Our skipper, Stefan, was a nice guy who knows his way around the boat. Even though the sea was a bit rough we had a nice time and learned a lot about sailing! Definitely a good first lesson, which can be worth it for people interested in sailing

My husband and I had a wonderful time with the skipper Stefan. He was very knowledgeable and he taught us a lot. Still, the atmosphere was laid-back and friendly, so it’s the perfect activity when on vacation.

The trip was cancelled the day before as there was too much wind to have a child onboard. There was no wind the morning we ended up going. We were frustrated we couldn't find the boat when we arrived and the organiser was frustrated too! The young man who took us out on the trip was friendly and helpful though the info I had communicated about my son's special needs hadn't been passed on to him.

Это наше первое путешествие на такой яхте с парусом и нам очень понравилось! Мы выбрали удобный для нас день и время. Хоть и опоздали - путешествие продлилось как и договаривались. Я смогла порулить, узнать как устроена яхта и как ей управлять. Спасибо!

I booked this with my wife and two children and we had a really wonderful time. We were also lucky that we had really good weather that was perfect for sailing. The skipper was very knowledgeable, friendly, and encouraged participation in the experience. It was a great way to spend the morning and we would be happy to do it again.
