Windsurfing Lessons

All members must have the appropriate skills in order to use the fleet.  Our lessons are a great, affordable way to learn or refresh these skills! Lessons are available to ClubLocarno members who have joined the Windsurfing Fleet.

If you already have the necessary skills, then you only need to complete a windsurfing checkout to gain access to the equipment.

Beginner Lessons  

Our 8 hour introductory course is $80.00:

We will give both on land and on water instruction using our club windsurfing gear.

Skills taught include understanding the wind (points of sail), how to launch and land safely. Basic maneuvers and self rescue. You will also be taught the correct use of our equipment (the Locarno Way) including our craft signout procedure and how to safely carry, clean and store the windsurfing boards and sails.

You are required to provide your own Wetsuit, or you can rent a wetsuit at the Jericho Sailing Centre.
