Aquativity Sailing Centres Temporarily Closed

At the beginning of May, the Aquativity center, along with Tommy Friedl’s operation ended lease agreements with the Hotel Yasmin Village in Hurghada. We have decided to close the sailing center for now and hopefully restructure some time in the future.

We are thankful to Tommy and our clients for all the support and business. As we look forward, we have yet to determine where we will set up our operations. Our Topper boats are in storage, but are for sale. Should we open our sailing center again, we will certainly announce it to you all.

Again, thank you to all our clients and partners for their support and dedication.

Sail in Egypt Beginner Sailing Courses

Despite wind and weather conditions, our beginners will learn something new every time. Today, the winds were very light so it was perfect time to practice capsize and recovery. David takes a beginner student through a half inversion (boat on side).

Capsize and Recovery Lesson, DM Sailing Center

Capsizes are an integral part of sailing dinghies. When a capsize happens for the first time, it can be quite shocking. But, being prepared to deal with one, and recover the boat is a major confidence booster.

10 Steps to Recover a Capsized Dinghy

1 – Clear the danger zone between the hull and the boom.
2 – Check in with any crew on board to make sure they’re not trapped.
3 – Swim around to the daggerboard/underside through the back of your boat.
4 – Hold on to the daggerboard to prevent the boat inverting further.
If you have a crew, then wait until they’re also at the daggerboard area
5 – Ensure the daggerboard is fully out (towards the underside, i.e you)
6 – All those around the daggerboard should hoist themselves upwards, trying to actually get on the daggerboard (Don’t worry if you don’t).
7 – The boat will begin to lean towards you. Continue to hoist yourself upwards.
8-  The boat will return to an upright position. Hold onto its side.
9 – Pull yourself into the boat and assist crew.
10 – When you’re ready, sheet in, and you’re ready to sail off.
