Choose from group lessons on weekdays or individual yachting practices that can be arranged for any time on any day. Taught by experienced coaches, the yachting program consists of a month of lessons. The program is available from April to September.
Who is the yachting training program for?
Adults aged 18 years and older. Beginners to advanced yachters.
When and where do lessons take place?
Yachting courses for adults are available from the beginning of April until the end of September. Lessons are given on the Vltava River in Prague. The program includes four three-hour lessons on selected days from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The program lasts one month.
INDIVIDUAL YACHTING LESSONS
Individual lessons are more effective and allow the student to acquire yachting skills faster. They also allow choosing the best time and day for lessons in relation to wind conditions. In addition, lessons can be arranged outside Prague, for example at the Nechranice Dam.
What happens during the lessons?
Lessons are divided into four sections – briefing, skill acquisition, on-water practice, and debriefing. Lessons start at 5:00 p.m. in the clubroom where the coach presents the outline. The presentation is followed by boat preparation and on-water training. During two and a half hours on the river, coaches focus on various exercises that take into account the experience of the trainees and the wind conditions. Practices end by returning to the marina and laying up the boats. Immediately afterward, the coach presents a final overview of the day.
Is any special equipment needed?
The DOCK MARINA CLUB provides trainees enrolled in yachting courses with a sailboat, a lifejacket, and a coach with an accompanying safety vessel. The only required items are appropriate clothes. A light waterproof jacket and pants and an extra pair of shoes (sneakers) will be sufficient.
How much does it cost?
The price is CZK 3,590 and includes four three-hour yachting lessons on the river, boat rental, and coaching. In the event of unfavorable wind conditions or absence, another date can be arranged free of charge.
