About the Event

Even if you live within sight of the sea, it's easy to forget that our world is mostly water. The open sea - that vast expanse of international waters - starts just a few miles away and spreads across three quarters of the globe. It's a place that remains radically free, exciting, stunningly beautiful, and most unforgivingly, if you don't know what you're doing. If you are looking for a real adventure, or if you want more experience and confidence in rough sea conditions, or if you want an International Certification (International Bareboat Skipper or Coastal Yachtmaster), it's time to go further out to sea and experience longer periods underway, out of sight of land, whilst learning in the environment of a state-of-the-art blue water sailing school.

The big blue ocean is calling. You are dreaming about sailing under a starlit sky. You want to experience what it means to sail out of the sight of land. Sailing in the open ocean you will likely will encounter dolphins, whales and spectacular sunsets and come home with memories that last a lifetime!

With a Ocean Sailing Course, you access navigation management in busy and non-busy areas, included night navigation, with the inherent decisions and the responsibility of the shifts, in consultation with the Professional skipper.

No previous sailing experience is needed.

According to the planned offshore sailing plan, navigation, weather, routing, definition of waypoints and the route depending on the destination and the weather. It is also maneuvers of sails at all speeds, the rotation of the crew at the positions of maneuvers. With the implementation of the shift system, it is the apprenticeship of the shift watch role.

We recommend that you bring your own food and drink before boarding, which you can easily purchase from the supermarket in Marina Dalmacija or in any of the islands we visit.

We can't wait to welcome you aboard our Offshore Sailing Course! Check-in begins at 4pm on Saturday at Marina Dalmacija, and we kindly ask that all our passengers disembark by 9am on the following Saturday so that we have time to clean and prepare the yacht for the next group.

Are there any local payments that I need to be aware of?
