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 Brittany.

PREREQUISITE:

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.

 

NAVIGATION AREA:

We will depart from Brest, located in 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 "Ouessant" and "Sein", the harbour of "Douarnenez" or the beautiful town of "Douarnenez" among others.

TRAINING PROGRAM:
  1. Security measures (reminders)

  2. Handle the boat (sail and motor) under moderate weather conditions. Spinnaker basics.

  3. Mooring and harbor maneuvers

  4. Coastal daytime navigation

  5. Main maintenance routines

  6. Environment knowledge

Note: The training program may vary depending on the weather and always stay therefore flexible.

TRAINING CERTIFICATE

Upon completing the course, you will be delivered an official training certificate as well as a written evaluation of your sailing skills, including  recommendations of your instructor for further trainings.

YACHT:

We will sail on a 30 to 38 feet yacht specially selected for this training program, with a spinnaker, for a team of 4 to 6 people, instructor included.

LOGISTICS:

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.

  • Upon enrollment, you will receive a "sailor guide" to be sure you have all information you need to enjoy your first sailing practice!
