Inshore / Offshore ChallengeApply for program

DATE: 7.03.-14.03.2021.

We have designed a special program for those who want to experience sailing in a different way. To sail towards the offing as you leave the world behind, to open yourself to the unique experience of the open sea, to reconnect with nature and self, and perhaps to ponder life’s larger questions… Open seas, freedom, positive fear, respect towards nature, night sailing and new experiences; all of this and so much more is what awaits you in this program.

Depending on the weather conditions, the plan is to visit the islands of  Vis, Palagruža, Sušac, Lastovo. Enjoy the untouched nature and complete peace on these islands during this off-peak period when there are few tourists. 

* The emphasis is on:

  1. Safety on-board
  2. ​Preparing the boat and crew for difficult conditions on the sea
  3. Boat handling
  4. Sail trim, reefing sails
  5. Navigation
  6. Meteorology
  7. Basics of repairing marine engines
  8. Handling VHF radio and other boat instruments
  9. MOB-Man- overboard MANOEUVRE
  10. Night watch on board

*It is preferable for participants of this program to already have some sailing experience.

*There are two professional instructors on-board for this course.

*The realisation of this program is dependent on weather conditions.
