Your international sailing school in Le Lavandou

35 years ago, Eric Roi created this sailing school on one of the best spots of the French Riviera. Our school is affiliated to the French Sailing Federation (FFV). Our passionated and graduated sailing instructors speak French and English but our teaching method perfectly fits any other language or nationalities. 

Our International Sailing Club in Cavalière, in Le Lavandou, offers daily and weekly group or individual lessons but also rentals. We favor practice over theory, we are in constant search for efficiency, performance and of course security but the most important thing to us is to share the pleasure and enjoyment of sailing and being on the water.

Come on, dive in the beautiful blue waters of Cavalière and come sail with us!!
