Intensive Sailing Course
Take a maximum knowladge in 7 days of sailing.
Intensive course is for persons which prefer fast and intensive adaptation of skills. In seven days spent sailing on sailboats of different sizes and performances you will gain plenty of knowledge of sailing. We guarantee a fun week and deep immersion in the world of sailing.
Four days we are based in Punat and we sail the Kvarnerić archipelago with accommodation on board the sailboat.
Three days we are navigating the wider North Adriatic archipelago (islands of Krk, Rab, Cres, Lošinj, Ilovik) and we’ll be sailing at least 30 miles every day which makes this course ideal for gaining mileage necessary for various certificates and ideal for gaining practical skills under sail. 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.
During intensive course you will gain valuable experiences sailing because we sail under all weather conditions and this will be an opening towards offshore sailing for you.
This course includes one night under sails while the crew is divided in 4 hours shifts and each participant will go through every duty on board sailboat necessary for safe and efficient sailing. Navigating under stars has its own charm and you need to see it for yourself.
All you need to add to our sailing instructors’ experience is Punat (Island of Krk - Croatia) and its vicinity to Zagreb, Ljubljana and other European cities. You will conclude that NAS Sailing Centre has everything you need for weekly or weekend skipper training or sailing courses.

What our participants say?
We had an intensive three day sailing / skipper course with an excellent teacher Marko, who was explaining and showing us with a lot of patience everything we needed to know to charter a boat on our own. We got very useful information and tips as well as thorough training in manoeuvring a 13-meter sailing yacht - driving, sailing and docking. Worth every penny! We can highly recommend NAS Sailing.
