Day Skipper Bareboat Sail course has its venue on sailing boat Beneteau First 36 as regatta-cruiser boat with maximum 4 attendants and one instructor. The course attendants are accommodated on board during the whole course. This program is a logical continuation and addition to the experience acquired in the previous Competent Crew course. It is held by instructors with very long skipper and yachting experience. The program includes a tour to the following islands: Brač, Šolta, Hvar, Vis and Korčula with one night navigation. Over these six days together with the following issues such as an independent navigational program, nautical skills, following the weather conditions and out-of-marina anchoring the attendants will be richer in their sailors’ skills. In the program they are also obligated with a duties necessary for living on sea such as: doing the dishes with the limited water consumption, cooking and the preparation of the typical meals: pasta with tuna, tomato sauce, fish stew.

Daily working program is not fixed owing to the unforeseeable weather conditions.
