Offshore Sailing Course
400+ nautaical miles of non-stop sailing. Punat - Palagruža - Lastovo - Vis - Jabuka - Punat
Take your sailing experience to a whole new level and hone your day & night navigation skills. Build confidence through non-stop sailing and simply enjoy a week of good time at sea.
Given the success of past courses, we decided to re-organize a unique offshore sailing course in the spring of 2022. Next dates: 23.4.2022.g. i 4.6.2022.g.
The idea of our Offshore sailing course is to show the beauty of life on a sailboat, away from the crowds, stress and strict rules.
So, you have sailed before and have some miles in the wake. Maybe you skippered a boat a few times for day sailing with friends & family or crewed in a few regattas. Now your ambitions are higher and you want to experience true offshore sailing.

Sailboat: Salona 45
Salona 45 (cruiser/racer) is 1 13.5 meter long sailing yacht with excellent characteristics. Comfortable, fast and safe – a perfect vessel for offshore sailing with excellent sailing characteristics.
This model is the debut of a domestic shipyard and the first Salon to pave the way for other models with its success. Suffice it to say that the mold of the ship came out of the J&J studio, owned by the famous brothers Japec and Jernej Jakopin. It is as popular a cruise ship as it is for regattas, due to its agility and ease of handling.
And while the exterior of the Salona is definitely cruiser-racer, with an emphasis on the latter feature, the interior is comfortable and in line with modern charter boat design trends. Spacious 4 cabins and 2 bathrooms are comfortable accommodation for the crew, and the central place is occupied by a fully equipped kitchen and a spacious lounge where the crew can relax with a cup of hot drink after the guard.
