Our basic skipper course suitable for ages 16 and over.

In the course you learn interpretation and seamanship along with knowing the structure of a yacht inside and out, learning about meteorology, navigation with navigation devices and coastal navigation with maps, control of the boat crew and behavior with vessels at sea and more.

At the end of the course you get an ISSA international license.

As part of the course, we also conduct a GMDSS Marine Radio Operator (VHF) course.

The sailboat skipper insurance license (with an auxiliary engine) allows you to sail up to a distance of 20 miles from the coast during the day and night, on a vessel up to 24 meters in length.

The minimum time required to complete the course: 50 study hours.

You can come to a concentrated and intensive course of six consecutive days (Sunday to Friday) or come to study during weekends for a period that will be spread over two months.

The course has up to 6 students, which allows for personal attention and a peripheral view of the students’ needs.

At the end of the course there will be a final test on the theoretical material and the GMDSS test, after which you will receive your skipper’s license.

The cost of the course is 2000 euros and includes the cost of the GMDSS course.
