Skipper training Skipper training Skipper training

 

Do you want to learn the basics of sailing or to determine your knowledge and skills of operating a vessel in unexpected situations and different weather conditions?

 

A passed skipper exam and 1 seven-day sailing trip is not a sufficient guarantee that you passed all the skills necessary to safely and successfully navigate a vessel.

 

In different weather conditions, when leaving and entering the marina, in case of minor defects on the vessel and similar unexpected situations, most newly-certified skippers will be found in an „tricky“ situation. Due to the lack of experience and practical knowledge, skippers could endanger the lives of their crews and could face paying for damages on the vessel.

 

So we decided to organize special training courses and give you a possibility to establish and update your basic skills and knowledge very quickly, to make your sailing trip a pleasant and relaxing experience.

 

Courses are adapted according to the level of knowledge of the participants and are held on the charter boats which will allow familiarization with the boat.

 

Prices are formed on request and depend on the wishes of our clients, such as: vessel length (36-50 feet), number of participants, possible organization of meals (breakfast and dinner).
