Confirmed crew sailing training course
Lorient, South Brittany, France
This sailing program is intended to strengthen your skills and experience. The objective is to train you to sail a boat effectively in daytime and in moderate weather conditions under the supervision of a skipper. You will sail in South Brittany.
Ideally, you have already completed a "beginner sailing training program" course. More generally, you should know the basics of sailing and have accumulated an experience of one to two weeks of sailing as an active crew member.
We will depart from Lorient, located in South Brittany. This beautiful area offers interesting training conditions (wind, tides, currents ...) as well as a beautiful historical and natural environment. According to the wind conditions, we will have the possibility to sail to the isles of "Groix" and "Belle Ile", the little harbour of "Doelan" or the medieval town of "Concarneau" among others.

We will welcome you on board at the Marina on Saturday afternoon and will free you one week later on Friday evening. You will receive detailed instructions after enrollment.
GOOD TO KNOW:
Training will take place in France, so if you need a visa to travel in this country, please give yourself enough time to get it to avoid stress and disappointment.
Alcohol can be a real security problem on a boat. As a consequence, it is only authorized in reasonable quantity when safely moored after navigation.
