The course is 8 days long starting from Split, Croatia. Each yacht has a dedicated instructor and the yacht is also shared by 4 skippers that will be your “guests” for the week
Day 1: Theory on land talking through what it means to be a professional host.
Day 2: Check-in and provisioning day for stocking up for a week at sea.
Day 3-7: Practical training on the water. Visit the islands we go to in the summer and practice cooking and hosting a yacht. Your skills will be evaluated and advice will be given by our expert instructors. Your skippers onboard will help you also to practice basic sailing skills.
Day 8: Check out of yacht, end of the course.
At the end of the course the instructors will ask themselves: “Would I feel comfortable sending you out on charter with my friends or family?” This decision will be based on 5 aspects and will determine if you pass or fail the course.
