With sailing schools dotting the coast, you will find many activities to learn dinghy sailing. Along rivers or lakes, the possibilities are many and the pleasures even more so. So enjoy the exhilarating sailing under the light of the Loire Valley or on the sunny Atlantic. Bring candles and enjoy the wind speed. Under the supervision of qualified staff, young and old can get behind the wheel of a catamaran or attempt to balance on a sailboard. Whatever the level, all are welcome. Store large doses of patience because you'll need it. And when you despair, feel lucky when you look around you as you are in direct contact with the elements.
