The wind whistling in your ears, the spray foaming, the water rushing by below you: this is your ROBINSON sailing vacation. Catamaran sailing along some of the most beautiful waterways there are, with first-class equipment and professional VDWS (association of German windsurfing and water sport schools) instructors — what are you still waiting for? Once you have your
catamaran certificate, you can take out a catamaran for free and set sail. Enjoy the perfect sailing vacation beneath glorious sunny skies even in the winter months. Book your sailing course at our watersports club and brave the wind and water.
Trained VDWS instructors await you for try-out lessons (free), sailing courses (additional charge), and regattas at our all-day ROBINSON water sports stations. The ROBINSON Watersports Learning System follows the VDWS (German Association of Watersport Schools) concept. Over the course of several mornings you have the opportunity to get your internationally-recognized VDWS basic catamaran license, certifying you as an experienced sailor.
If you already have a catamaran certificate or equivalent sailing certificate, you can simply take out a catamaran for free (1 hour/day). Want more? Then rent your own exclusive catamaran and professional equipment for your vacation at selected clubs (additional charge).

Cast off and set sail! If you trust yourself, attach yourself to the trapeze and be swept along with the waves. Sailing on catamarans is one of the most beautiful watersports experiences there is. The light boats with the two hulls are sporty and even move quickly when there is not much wind thanks to their large sails — a fascinating sailing experience for beginners and professionals.
On our fully equipped catamaran you will learn to tack, jibe and to observe the right of way. And if you already have a catamaran certificate, simply present it at the watersports station and you can hire a catamaran for free.
Gennaker sailing is a particular challenge where you have to hold your boat steady on broad reach or beam reach. Sailing with a gennaker, which originated in regatta sport, will completely intoxicate you. You can book courses (additional charge) at ROBINSON CLUBS APULIA, ÇAMYUVA, DAIDALOS, ESQUINZO PLAYA, JANDIA PLAYA, SARIGERME PARK and SOMA BAY.
