Duration: 7 days
For those who would like to learn to sail and become active crew members rather than just passengers. Learn To Sail with RYA Courses. On completion you will receive a Competent Crew Sailing Qualification.
Experience living, sailing, cooking and sleeping on board for 5 days and really get to know the boat. Virtually all the course is hands on. You are the crew – without you the sails won’t go up and the boat won’t be steered. This is very much a Practical Sail Training course.
By the end of the course you should be able to steer, handle sails, keep a lookout, row a dinghy and assist in all the day to day duties on board.
During the course you will visit some some if the 1000 islands in Croatia that will include the islands of Brac, Solta, Hvar and Vis all weather dependent, but expect to have an enjoyable training holiday.
We strongly advise completing the Coastal Skipper/Yachtmaster™ Offshore Theory Course This can also be completed with one of our Online Theory courses and should be completed beforehand as there is insufficient time to teach the theory required during a practical 5 day course. In addition the participant should have completed:
– 300 miles on a yacht
– 2 days as a skipper
– 15 days onboard
– 8 night hours
Extras available: Transfers to Split Airport
This course is also available on SailEasy as a private yacht training, or for ladies only
AFTER THE COURSE
You will be able to skipper a yacht on coastal passages by day and night. After the Dayskipper course you can start making miles on yourself, or continue your training to obtain the Yachtmaster certificate
