“After the opti sailing for children from 6-12 years the sailing continues on the two-man dinghy FEVA.“
The Feva is the best-selling youth boat worldwide and is used by most sailing associations as a training boat after the Opti. With a length of 3.40 m and a weight of only 69 kg, it is easy to handle, has excellent sailing characteristics and also offers a genack for maximum sailing fun. The change from the one-man-boat Opti is made much easier, because the Feva is sailed without a harness and therefore also involves less risk. With this offer we want to give the numerous families with children, who have already taken several optics courses with us, a possibility to offer their kids a further education on dinghies, before they can change to bigger dinghies at the age of 16.
At least one completed optics course and subsequent practice. Minimum age is 10 years, you must be able to swim and enjoy sailing! After a longer break from sailing and only one optics course, we recommend a further week in the Opti and the change to FEVA in the second week.
The aim of the course is to be able to sail a two-man dinghy safely in medium wind conditions after 5 days.
“In the advanced course we sail in wind forces up to 4 Beaufort! Planing with Genacker and fun with fast sporty sailing.“
Experience after a beginner's course on the Feva or privately acquired knowledge on planing dinghies. Be able to swim, be sporty and fit and enjoy sporty sailing!
The aim of the course is to sail the Feva up to 4 Beaufort, even with a genaker, and to master all manoeuvres in a technically correct way.
