It is a requirement for overseas examinations and also good practice to ensure you have the opportunity to become familiar with the yacht. And also your crew plus the examination and cruising area. The cruising area in the adriatic is perfect for exams with excellent pilotage opportunities good sailing winds and the warm weather definitaly makes it more enjoyable.
