Welcome aboard CrazySail Academy, an academy entirely dedicated to boat license holders (or other qualifying certificates). It is a 4-day professional course designed primarily to prepare skippers for flotilla maneuvers and crew management .
An Ocean RYA instructor will conduct theoretical and, above all, practical lessons supervising every single maneuver of the participants. He will be joined by the CrazySail Route Manager , with more than ten thousand miles and ten years of experience in the flotilla behind him. Together they will test everyone's skills and teach their "secrets" with a view to continuous improvement!
The teaching objectives are mainly two:
1. Make all participants autonomous in flotilla maneuvers, increasing their practical and theoretical knowledge regarding safe maneuvers and possible unexpected events.
2. Train skippers capable of handling all kinds of crew, from expert to those who have never been on a sailboat.
