To many, driving a sailing yacht may seem like a very difficult task. This is partly true. There is a lot to know, and the main thing is to know how not to get lost in a difficult situation and to find a safe and effective solution to the problem. In addition, in order to charter a yacht, it is necessary to have sailing licenses or certificates, without them, no matter how you ask, even if you have some sailing skills, the yacht will not be chartered to you.
We offer not boring and maximally effective training! You won’t have to cram notes or yawn in class. Everything is as clear as possible, informative, “without water”. Easy and relaxed, with humor and in a friendly atmosphere. You will listen with interest and you will not want to miss anything!
One person can drive a yacht, it all depends on the size of the vessel and the experience of the captain. Yachts that are chartered for 6-10 people are quite large and it will be difficult to handle alone. For this reason, the skipper must have an assistant who can take over part of the captain’s duties. Therefore, it is better to study together with a friend or family!
