Le Beach Club – the perfect place to learn to sail | Samui Times

One of the great joys of living on, or indeed visiting, a paradise island like Koh Samui, apart from the weather, is being able to enjoy the ocean.

Generally the azure waters of the gulf of Thailand are calm, inviting and relaxing.  There are many day trips to Koh Tao and the National Marine Park for divers, but if diving is not really your thing and you want to enjoy the ocean a bit closer to home the good news is that you can enjoy a wonderful ocean adventure without having to leave Koh Samui.

The waters here are calm and inviting and when it comes to learning to sail it is hard to imagine a more idyllic spot.

The Le Beach Club team has well over ten years of sailing experience in Thailand, racing and cruising and sailing and is made up of manager K Dear, speed boat captain K Wan and  instructor Berenice Diveu who has just joined the team. Berenice is a friendly and experienced skipper who will be taking care of the sailing boats and stand up paddle boards. As well as the addition of Berenice, in January there will be three more sport catamarans to sail as well as the Hobie Teddy.

Catamarans are safe, fast and easy to operate when beaching and sailing in shallow waters and are suitable for all ages. Here beginners can learn to sail on tailor made sailing courses and sailing camps can be organized for children as young as eight. Sailors of all levels of experience can improve their skills and gain more experience under the reassuring supervision of experienced sailors at Le Beach Club Samui as well of course enjoying the picture perfect surroundings.
