SAILING CLUB Las Terrenas
For more than ten years, our passionate sailing association is fully dedicated to the Sailing School affiliated with the Dominican Sailing Federation. Located at the extremity of Playa Las Ballenas, the club teaches children and adults to navigate in ideal climatic conditions.
With around 20 sailboats, Optimists, Sunfish, Laser and Hobie Cats, paddles and kayaks, the club offers adapted support to sailors of all ages and all levels. In addition to the classes organized each week for children and young people, we also offer individual classes for adults.
Our dream is to find and train young local talents that we can introduce to the Dominican Sailing Federation in order to be selected and participate in international regattas of young sailor under the banner of the Dominican Republic. Assisted by our two professional monitors, we give classes at reasonable prices, 4 times a week with the aim of starting or making the children progress in sailing, and to form a competition team in Optimist with children from 6 to 15 years, and in Sunfish or Laser with the older ones. In addition, we organize five-day sailing camps during school holidays.
Every year, in late April-early May, the club organizes the annual regatta of Las Terrenas. This two-day national competition attracts numerous athletes from all over the country and sometimes from abroad, gathering up to 50 boats as well as a crowd of aficionados along the beach.
We speak French, English, Spanish and Swedish (Jan), which allows us to teach and share our passion with children of all nationalities, this being a great advantage. It is also possible to rent sailboats, kayaks and paddles in our club assisted by our monitors.
Our association welcomes new members, who have the right to vote during the assemblies and who will benefit with a 50% discount on the rental of our boats.
