Learn from your skipper

Our Day 1 Skipper Course gives you a half day refresher with a local, experienced Sail Croatia Skipper, giving you the confidence and insider knowledge to get the best out of your week sailing in Croatia.

This 4 hour program is designed for certified Skippers who have booked a Sail Croatia Yacht Charter and would like a little additional direction, allowing you to relax on your holiday. As a sailor, you will know that the best person to learn from is someone that has spent years sailing in the area, building up their location specific knowledge and experience which they can share with you.

Course Breakdown
Sailboat Charter Knowledge
In Depth Briefing: 1-2 Hours

Arguably the most important part of enjoying your holiday experience is getting insider knowledge on the best places to eat, drink and visit. Our full chart briefings start by understanding what your group are looking to experience throughout the week; what your interests are and any destinations you’ve already got in mind.

Dynamics vary from group to group; sailors, families, old friends, young friends or a combination of demographics, meaning that each itinerary should be tailored to your needs.

Croatia is full of wonderful experiences, bays, marinas, clubs, restaurants and sailing conditions, ensuring that each no two itineraries are the same.

Our Skipper will show you how to manage the weather and build an itinerary based on your group's requirements, allowing you to experience the best week possible!

Stern to Docking Procedure
Practical Sailing: 1-2 Hours

Croatian marina's can often be tricky to navigate, particularly in windy conditions with narrow marina channels between vessels. Our Skipper will help you gain confidence by refreshing your skills and talking you through the process and steps for docking safely.

Your Skipper will then get you and your crew ready by practicing this procedure so that everyone onboard feels confident when it comes to reversing onto the dock, throwing stern lines and boat hooking a lazy line.

If it's the first time your crew are onboard, or if you’re chartering a catamaran for the first time, we would certainly recommend some practice time here. It helps to get everyone participating from the start of the week and reduces any stress the Skipper feels, creating a teamwork environment onboard whilst you focus on docking.

During the practical element of the program, your Skipper can also help with any other procedures you wish to cover including: main and jib process, anchor and windlass procedures, man overboard procedures etc.
