Sailing Basics

Who is this course made for?

Sailing Basics is a course for beginners who have never sailed before and want to spend their vacation actively. 
After successful completion of the Sailing Basics course, we are proud to say that almost all of the attendees adopt sailing as a lifestyle. Being it individuals who want to learn sailing skills or families wishing to spend time together actively, our sailing courses will make sure you will keep coming back.

What does the program involve?

As a part of this course, you will start to learn the basics of the wider sailing experience. While we will make sure you can master sailing as time goes on, this course makes learning key terminology and day-to-day sailing systems so much easier. It will help you to adopt to the sailing lifestyle, thus making it easier for you to get out to the sea and to truly enjoy yourself.

The basic theories of sailing will be made much clearer to you. To do this, we provide you with a multilingual handbook in both English and in Croatian. This allows you to learn the key theories, and then start to put those skills to the test. Alongside a team of instructors, you will begin to go through the entry level sailing experience, making sure that you can learn without any pressure.

This will see you sail around 120 nautical miles at first, making sure that you can enjoy a far more studious experience, ensuring that you can quickly learn the basics. So long as you can swim, you can be sure that you can take part!

Program content

Typically, this program will take place following a simple plan to get you out to the sea and on the sailboat – no experience needed beforehand. You will learn the basics of how to steer and handle the boat, as well as some other essential parts of the process.

This will take around five days, and will often take place near Murter Island. It starts on the Saturday of your arrival at 6:00pm, and will end on the following Thursday at 7:00pm. Each day comes with a plan to help ensure that you can continue to learn without any problems. From sailing and anchoring to dealing with essential terminology around how to sail, you’ll learn key skills such as:

  • The vital importance of safety onboard the ship and at sea in general.
  • Key terminology and locations of critical parts of the boat, including Bernoulli’s Law.
  • Where crew members should be stationed for best effect, and their jobs.
  • The management of your sails to help ensure you can trim and reef the sales as needed.
  • Avoiding collision and any kind of physical damage along the way.
  • Turning and anchoring the boat as needed to help maximize safety and efficiency.
  • Dealing with knots.

Packing tips

We recommend that you try and be ready for a challenging yet enjoyable experience overall. To get you ready for everything which shall take place as soon as you hit the sea, we recommend that you bring the following items with you. This will help to improve the way in which you sail and ensure you feel better during the experience:

  • Sailing gloves and a pair of non-slip shoes to help improve grip when the water comes on.
  • Long-sleeve shirts that protect you from the sun, with shorts or trousers as desired.
  • Sunscreen as well as a wide-brimmed hat to keep the sun off of you when sailing.
  • A pair of sunglasses to help improve how easily you can see when you are sailing.
  • Personal hygiene products and toiletries, including towels for sunbathing.
  • If you come in the colder months, bring a waterproof jacket and a sleeping bag/blanket.

Be sure to bring any kind of personal medication that you might need to take, as well. You should look to ensure that you have suitable clothing and equipment: our team will take a look at what you have before we set off. Unsure if you have enough? Contact our team today.
