Dreaming of crossing the ocean one day?
We encourage you to take the first step and participate in our skipper’s training program, spending 5 days aboard a yacht to bring your already existing sailing knowledge and skills to a higher level.
We believe that boating does not primarily require a certificate, but real knowledge and as much experience as possible are the key factors. In most cases, it depends on the routine and the proper knowledge of the local conditions to make sailing a pleasant and relaxing way of family holidays.
At our maneuver training, we provide you with the opportunity to try what it feels like to be behind the wheel, we will teach you the ins and outs of sailing, and in addition to theoretical knowledge, we will talk about challenges, practical solutions and mooring tips and tricks. You will practice setting sails correctly, getting in and out of ports, and everything you need to improve in order to embark confidently in the future as a captain.
We will adapt the program to the knowledge and requests of the participants, and we can also organize the exam necessary for obtaining a skipper license, upon request.
Skills and knowledge
Low cost carriers have become the best value in your flights planning to reach Split.
Getting to Split by bus is one of the cheapest ways to travel. Split bus station (Autobuski Kolodvor) is conveniently located in Split port area.
Traveling to Croatia by car is always a good idea. Split is connected by a very picturesque highway A1 from Zagreb.
If you need transfer or taxi from the airport, it can be arranged upon request.
May is an ideal month to visit Croatia.
The temperatures fluctuate between 16 and 23°C, there is just a little rainfall and wind, and there are no more than 8 hours of sunshine per day. Rain in May simply comes and goes quickly under the form of sporadic showers and maybe an occasional cloud blanket. Winds generally NW F3-4 (10-20 Knots, sometimes up to 25 Knots).
Here’s a suggested packing list for a more comfortable sailing training:
- a soft travel bag on wheels
- sun-protective T-shirts with sleeves
- sailing / deck shoes (you can also bring your sailing boots)
- fleece sweater or vest
- coastal sailing foul weather gear (waterproof jacket and pants)
- portable VHF radio and inflatable life vest (if you already have)
