Alongside one of the DYC instructors, embark on a marine escapade in the calm movement of a sailboat to admire the sea birds and the Seine estuary for two hours of unforgettable stroll. Accessible from 3 years old, the DYC sea trips adapt to the public to give a new look to the coast and make you want to deepen your knowledge of sailing before taking sailing lessons.


The Deauville Yacht Club sailing school, labeled French Sailing School and Competition Club, is open all year round and adapts to all levels: sport sailing, recreational sailing or leisure sailing. Whether you are training for a regatta or want to familiarize yourself with the boat, sailing can be learned on board, aboard a J80 or a Grand Surprise.
