Sailing Course Basic

The seven-day basic skipper course immerses you in the picturesque waters surrounding Pula and the nearby islands of the northern Adriatic. Over the duration of this comprehensive program, you’ll have the opportunity to both test and refine your theoretical understanding and practical skills, even in less favorable weather conditions. Upon successfully demonstrating your proficiency, you’ll emerge prepared to navigate independently as a skipper.

Objectives of Sailing Course Basic

The course begins with an introduction to the instructor and boat familiarization (Check-in) on the first day, followed by practical exercises on sailing in and out of the starting marina the next day. By the third day, participants embark on a pre-planned route, navigating to different locations each day to practice maneuvering, sailing, anchoring, navigation, and other essential aspects of boat management. Accompanied by your instructor, you’ll navigate the waters of Pula, the Kamenjak cape, and the Brijuni National Park

Throughout the program, participants reside and live on the boat with the presence of a skipper-instructor, simulating real-life scenarios encountered during a voyage.
