Skipper Training

Skipper Training

What does the program involve?

The Skipper Training Course will ensure that you undergo the strictest of learning environments. Anyone taking part in this must have already completed our Sailing Skills and Navigation and/or Sailing and Cruising Course, or similar from another sailing school. We will test your skills to ascertain your suitability if we have any doubts.

You will also need to have at least 300 NM in your logbook, or at least 15 days of sailing experience, including up to 4 hours of night-time navigation. If you are eligible, you’ll undergo a six-day experience where we’ll set out on the Saturday at 2:00 pm, and continue until the late afternoon the following Friday.

You will be provided with the required recognition at the end to ensure that you are seen and recognized as a Skipper. Through each day, we will be sailing around the waters of the Murter Island, as well as the National Park Kornati.

You will, by the end of this program, be much more likely to handle a sailboat and also manage your crew during both day and night. Come the end, you will have also sailed around 300 NM to ensure competency.
