Intensive sailing Course Details

On this 7-day course, we are based in Punat for 3 days and sail the Kvarnerić archipelago with accommodation in sailboat cabins for 2. In your free time, bicycles and standup paddleboards (SUP) are available from the Sailing Center, while in Marina Punat, where the sailboats are berthed, there is a recently opened SPA facility with a pool for relaxation and enjoyment.

For four days, we navigate the Northern Adriatic archipelago (the islands of Krk, Rab, Cres, Lošinj and Ilovik) and sail at least 30 miles every day, which makes this course ideal for gaining the mileage necessary for various certificates and also for gaining practical skills under sail. The intensive course is conceived in a way that every participant will go through each position on board – skipper, trim of mainsail, jib and genoa, gennaker, anchoring, docking, etc.

This course includes one night under sails, and the crew is divided into 4-hour shifts, with each participant undertaking every duty on board the sailboat that is necessary for safe and efficient sailing. Navigating under the stars has its own magic and is something you need to experience for yourself.

During the intensive course, you will gain valuable experience while sailing, as we sail in all weather conditions, which will be an introduction to offshore sailing for you.
