Brief description of the holiday
This course is also available on 12-13 May.
The BE SKIPPER sailing course is dedicated to those who have already experienced sailing and aim to provide the necessary skills to command a pleasure yacht .
Be Skilled is specialized in the organization of sailing courses with a high technical content, from a simple nautical license to international Yachtmaster certifications for the pleasure boat. You will be guided and stimulated by skippers from the major sailing realities, RYA certified and merged into Be Skilled, recognizing their innovation.
We have created an innovative educational process dedicated to all those who want to develop more attitudes and autonomy at the helm of a pleasure yacht . Route planning, navigation in all weather conditions, maneuvers in restricted water, anchorages, moorings, electronics, engines and use of safety equipment: the purpose of this course is not only to refine sailing skills but also to tackle the problems that each " skipper "and" sailor "must know how to solve on a cruise.
