Sailing courses are not limited to an age or gender. Any person can enroll, from kids to adults. But before you enroll yourself or your child to a sailing course, you should first learn more about the two types of sailing courses.

When it comes to the types of sailing courses, the only thing you would need to think about is the size of the sailboat to be used. There can only be two: large and small.

Most adults would often want to learn how to sail large boats. This is because larger boats do not tip over. They are also able to accommodate a number of people. When you want to sail with a group of friends, or even business partners or clients, you should learn how to sail a large boat.

The structure of lessons for larger sail boats is very well organized. Some places regulate these lessons. In the US for example, there are two organizations that regulate sailboats: mainly the US Sailing and the American Sailing Association. When a person is certified from these organizations, he or she is qualified to charter boats anywhere in the world. In some areas, however, money is the only thing needed.

Normally, kids are the ideal target for smaller sail boats. But for people who do not care about the grandeur and only wish to sail fast even just on a small fiberglass, this is the best choice. Sailing smaller boats do not require courses. The only thing one would have to do is read a little then rent a boat.
