Basic skipper course

To attend this course no previous sailing experience is needed

You are dreaming about sailing holidays and now you have decided to start planning to rent a yacht during your next vacation, but you feel like you’re still lacking some confidence and practical knowledge. By attending our 7-day basic skipper course you’ll polish your practical and theoretical knowledge on board of a sailing yacht. Basic skipper course will start from Pula and you will be returning to your home port of Pula every evening.

Accomodation during course is on a yacht, meaning you will get full experience of living on board a yacht. Archipelago of city Pula will be your playground for performing anchoring, sailing and other skills which you will learn. You’ll learn tips and tricks of docking a yacht and handling minor mechanical issues. After finishing the basic skipper course, you will have enough knowledge and confidence in yacht maneuvers to take your family or friends to sailing holidays.

I would like to learn how to handle to sailboat in 7 days and become my own captain.
