Brief description of the holiday
CrazySail Academy Lite!
Welcome aboard CrazySail Academy Lite, a one-day course aimed at newly licensed and sailing enthusiastic skippers who are considering trying their hand at the best job in the world for a few summer weeks.
ATTENTION: before booking it is essential to contact us via the "Contact the organizer" button on the experience card : after a short telephone conversation, we will provide you with all the instructions to make your reservation with the help of Sailsquare Customer Support.
What is it about?
CrazySail Academy Lite is the little sister of CrazySail Academy. It constitutes a unique and fun opportunity for new skippers to test themselves in a protected and safe environment.
It will also be the opportunity to chat with some of our Skippers and get to know the WindArt Community, an extended family of Staff and Skippers who are protagonists of CrazySail experiences every year. A way to tell you something more about our flotillas and the fabulous group of skippers that has been created.
The course will be held by one of our most experienced skippers and will focus on the management of an unfamiliar crew through exercises of different maneuvers in the field.You will have the opportunity to experience firsthand the real management of a boat: from planning a maneuver , to communication techniques with the crew, up to the execution of the maneuver itself. In addition to the practical side, our instructor will exhibit standard procedures and safety-checks for the assessment and improvement of risk and safety levels.
The objectives are mainly three:
1. Give a first smattering of practical and theoretical knowledge regarding safe maneuvers and possible unexpected events.
2. Introduce the participants to the correct management of all kinds of crews, from those experienced to those who have never been on a sailboat.
3. Allow attendees to learn about the WindArt family and CrazySail Academy, CrazySail and SailNext experiences. Because it would be nice to have you on board next summer too!
