Free sailing sessions in Doha

The best way to beat the humidity this summer is to jump into a pool. Or head out for some aqua adventures.

Luckily, Sora Marine is offering free sailing sessions for both adults and children. A family activity for absolutely no cost sounds like the perfect summer plan.

Sora Marine Training teaches sailing, diving, wakeboarding, water-skiing, wakesurfing and powerboating, all with qualified instructors at the helm. You can take courses, sign up for watersports camps and so much more.

The RYA Standard Sailing Course, taught by qualified, highly experienced instructors, costs QR1,800 otherwise. It starts at level one and goes up to level three for adults, and offers a selection of advanced modules.

The courses are 12 to 16 hours long and can be completed in two full days in groups of up to six people, or privately.

But you can save that cash and get a free beginner’s lesson. The free sailing sessions start on Saturday August 31 at 8am until 9.30am and 10am until 11.30am for children and from 1pm until 3pm for adults.

The classes are conducted on a weekly basis (every Saturday), so the next session following August 31 will be on September 7 and 14. The timings are the same but the slots are limited.

Signing up as soon as possible might be a good idea if you want to strengthen your sailing game.

And just in case you want to enroll in any of the other watersports and classes here, there are plenty of options.

The PADI-certified diving lesson (QR300) includes an introduction to breathing underwater in the pool, and the open water scuba diving course (QR2,000) includes a theory session, a pool session and four sea dives.

Sora Marine Training’s wakeboats can be rented for QR400 per hour on weekdays and QR500 per hour on weekends for a maximum of three people.

You can learn to wakeboard, wakesurf and water-ski with the help of an instructor if you’re a beginner.
Free. Aug 31, Sept 7, 14, timings vary. Sora Marine Training, The Diplomatic Club,
