  1. Hello

    I am interested in getting my Class Two Boating License in Japan. I have a little bit of experience sailing a 26 ft sloop and quite a bit of sailing time in a Laser.

    I live in Aichi and my Japanese language skill is not so good so would like to take a course in English. Could you let me know the times of your courses, the location and the fees?

    Thank you
