Crew list information will be required from each student after a booking has been made and this must be submitted 14 days before the start of a course. A link will be emailed to you once a booking has been completed.
First night may be spent in the home port marina after a day sail however if the day is progressing well we will aim to get out of the marina to one of the gorgeous islands on the Adriatic Coast.
The islands we often visit include: Brac, Hvar, Solta, Pakleni Islands, Scedro, Vis and Korcula. (Please note in a 5 day course you will not get to visit them all).
Breakfast & Lunch Provisions will be delivered to the yacht before you arrive so the course will be ready to start once you have dropped your bags in a cabin.
Evenings: We will either be in a new port, marina or harbour, spending the night on anchor or we will return to our home port. If there are not facilities to eat ashore provisions to make food onboard will be supplied.
(This is all depending on the weather and the particular course structure required for your chosen syllabus).
Disembarkation: All yachts will return to home port at 16:00 on the last day of the course and all students are expected to assist with a general clean and tidy up of the yacht.
Disembarkation is usually at 4:30/5:00pm so cleaners can get onboard to sort the yacht out for the next course.
Most students then decide to enjoy an end of course beverage in Bavadria bar located in the marina.
