Two episodes each week, for a total of 25 videos (with many more to come), until the end of March.

Twenty-five lessons, “basic” and “advanced,” where experts reveal all the tricks to improve your skills on board, lengthen the life of your boat, sail safely.

How much does it cost to enroll in our SAIL School? Nothing.
