Sani Marina Sailing Academy: Fun & Learning while on Holiday


Sani Marina, leading luxury home port of the North Aegean and a proud member of “1782 Club” by Camper & Nicholsons, teamed up with the Nautical Club of Thessaloniki for another season of celebrating the maritime sports through the Sani Marina Sailing Academy.

The inaugural year of 2014 saw many young participants who enjoyed getting the knowledge and practical skills on the basics of sailing in the azure waters of Sani Resort. Multi-lingual expert instructors from Thessaloniki’s Nautical Club focused on young Resort guests and local residents alike, making sure that their Certificates were well earned.

This year, Sailing Academy is expanding the lessons and beside the world’s most popular class, Optimist, will exclusively launch new courses in the Laser class for teenagers of 14-17 years. Laser class sailing is one of the leading light sailing categories, often providing for an introductory level to professional competitions.

The Sani Marina Sailing academy will welcome new participants of 6-17 years between May and August, offering them an intensive 10-hour course on dry land and off-shore. Parents are welcome to watch the final race and attend the award ceremony. A “Certificate of attendance” will be accredited by the Nautical Club of Thessaloniki and qualifies for membership in any nautical club worldwide as well as participation in Optimist and Laser sailing races too.


Committed to constantly enriching the nautical ambience of its luxurious berthing facilities, Sani Marina enthusiastically welcomes this new nautical activity and encourages Resort guests and local residents to take up on the opportunity to master the initial steps of sailing in the Summer Sailing Academy. We strongly back up the participation of young locals in the activities of the Academy - one place per weekly session will be offered free of charge courtesy of Sani Resort.

Sani Marina – nestled in the heart of the five-star Sani Resort - is an all year round luxury hotel for sailing and motor yachts, offering daily, monthly and yearly berths for the vessels up to 26m LOA in a safe and cosmopolitan setting.
