All folk high schools arrange short courses for adults of all ages. The course lengths vary from one to several weekends, or some even go from one to several weeks. The courses are shown on the school's homepage.
This is perhaps the most well known of our courses on sailing and sail boats, most often the 30 foot boats, but also some smaller ones from Viking times. Other hand work courses with relation to coastal culture are boat building and repair, rope making, seamanship, and sail making. As well as courses about how men navigated with the help of the sun and stars in the Viking times.

Courses for corporations and leaders
To row and sail an open boat together - it requires teamwork, awakenness, initiative, flexability, and good communication. In other words, qualities many corporations and leaders wish to see in thier employees. We arrange the course in sailing with a focus on teambuilding, as well as we give insight into the lives of fishermen 150 years ago.
We can put together a plan with a practical purpose, and organize a course or a seminar. We make the frame, and you shape the final outcome of it. As you can see we have experience and compotense in many areas. Make contact with us if you are interested. We will design the course that you need!
