In recent years we have sailed mono- and multihulls of various sizes in many areas of the world. As instructors, skippers, on deliveries, regattas or team trainings. Much of what we needed for was learned in sailing licenses – but real confidence is only gained by practice.
Do you get nervous when you arrive in front of the harbor? Or when you leave?
With our skipper trainings or assisted deliveries, we pass our practical experience on to you, even if you already have a license. It’s a training program that picks you up where you stand. If necessary, you practice harbor maneuvers and we discuss these until you have the hang of it: docking with sidewinds, slip the lines from a gas station, working with the propeller effect, working with springs – you only need one line …
Do you want to go on a long trip?
Or we go on a training cruise with you and we practice procedures that are essential for safe navigation: Where to get the best wind and wave information. What strategies do I choose for an upcoming offshore passage, taking into account the tides (“passage planning”). How do I find my heading? When do you reef? Correct trim of rigg and sails. Position with the sextant. Code Zero. Genaker. Spinnaker. Decisions in time, commands, crew spirit, fear, technical management, seasickness. Radio communication, anchor techniques. Engine. Energy management in practice. Troubleshooting in the exclusion process. When and how do I pass a cargo ship correctly? How do I use radar and AIS? How do I approach a harbor under sail only? How do I react to a distress? Computer on board. How do I organize a daily routine during long passage?
Benefit from the experience of many cruises.
For our own safety, we know how to coach safe handling with yachts quickly. We sometimes do this as a sailing instructors, but much more often to find relieable partners at sea. Whether you are cruising on the Baltic Sea or in the Mediterranean, or you want to cross the Bay of Biscay – we make you fit for the sea.
