This Skipper training course has been thought out with the newly 'licensed' skippers in mind or those that have been away from the sea for a while and feel a bit 'rusty'.
Course type: Practical
Duration: 3 days
Location: Marina Kastela, Croatia
Included: 3 days tuition onboard a modern yacht, Linens, Marina fees at home port
Not included: Food (also for the Instructor), other marina/anchorage fees, Diesel. Tourist tax (approx 20 Euro p/p), Travel to/from Kastela
The intensive three days practical course covers the whole range of manoeuvres a Skipper needs to perform on a sailing yacht. Mooring stern-to or alongside, motoring in confined spaces, anchoring, picking up a buoy, reefing, etc.
The program is flexible, so that we can spend extra time to cover any specific area you may want to focus on. At the end of these three days, you will be considerably more comfortable to sail a yacht and manoeuvre her in a confined space.
With a max of 5 participants, you will get plenty of exercise time!
