You can reserve your place for the training we provide on our boat as well.

Our sailing boat and basic sailor trainee encompasses a wide range of topics aimed at teaching individuals the skills and knowledge needed to safely and effectively operate a sailing vessel.  Whether you’re a novice or an experienced sailor looking to enhance your abilities, sailing boat education can cover various aspects of sailing theory, practical skills, navigation, safety procedures, and more.

Here’s an outline of what sailing boat education typically includes:

Sailing Theory: Understanding the principles of sailing, including how sails work, points of sail (close-hauled, beam reach, broad reach, etc.), sail trim, and how to harness the power of the wind to propel the boat forward.

Boat Handling Skills: Learning how to handle the boat under different wind and sea conditions. This includes tacking (turning the boat through the wind), gybing (turning the boat away from the wind), docking, anchoring, and maneuvering in tight spaces.

Navigation: Basic navigation skills using charts, compass, and GPS. Understanding navigational aids such as buoys, beacons, and landmarks. Plotting courses, taking bearings, and using electronic navigation tools effectively.

Safety Procedures: Knowledge of safety equipment and procedures onboard, including how to use personal flotation devices (life jackets), man overboard drills, fire safety, emergency signaling devices, and basic first aid.

Rules of the Road: Understanding the international regulations for preventing collisions at sea (COLREGs) and how they apply to sailing vessels. Learning right of way rules, navigation lights, and sound signals.

Weather Awareness: Understanding how weather conditions affect sailing, including wind patterns, weather forecasting, and how to recognize and respond to changing weather conditions while underway.

Maintenance and Boat Care: Basic maintenance tasks to keep the boat in good working condition, including sail care, hull maintenance, engine maintenance (if applicable), and troubleshooting common onboard issues.

Advanced Skills: For more experienced sailors, advanced topics such as racing tactics, sail trim optimization, celestial navigation, offshore passage planning, and boat systems maintenance may be covered.

Sailing boat education can be obtained through Yatservis. Hands-on experience and practice on the water are essential components of learning to sail, so our educational programs will include both classroom instruction and on-the-water training.

Bareboat charter refers to the practice of renting a sailboat or yacht without a crew or skipper included. In a bareboat charter arrangement, the charterer (or renter) is responsible for operating the vessel themselves, including navigation, sailing, and general upkeep. This type of charter is ideal for experienced sailors who are capable of handling the boat independently.

Here are some key points about bareboat charter:

Experience Level: Bareboat charter companies typically require renters to have a certain level of sailing experience or certification. This may include international sailing certifications, a specified amount of sailing experience, or a demonstration of proficiency in operating the type of vessel being chartered.

Boat Selection: Charterers can choose from a range of sailboats or yachts available in the charter company’s fleet. Factors to consider when selecting a boat may include size, amenities, equipment, and suitability for the planned voyage.

Charter Agreement and Insurance: The charter process involves signing a charter agreement outlining the terms and conditions of the rental. Charter companies typically provide insurance coverage for bareboat charters, but renters may be required to purchase additional insurance or provide a security deposit.

Navigation and Route Planning: Charterers are responsible for planning their sailing routes and destinations. Prior to departure, they may be required to submit a proposed itinerary to the charter company for approval. The charter company may offer advice on routes, anchorages, and points of interest.

Daily Maintenance and Responsibilities: During the charter period, charterers are responsible for the daily maintenance and operation of the vessel. This includes tasks such as cleaning, equipment checks, fueling, provisioning, and ensuring compliance with safety regulations.

Bareboat charter offers experienced sailors the freedom to explore the waters at their own pace and on their own terms. However, it requires a high level of seamanship and responsibility on the part of the charterer. It’s essential for charterers to familiarize themselves with local regulations, safety procedures, and the specific requirements of the charter company before embarking on a bareboat charter adventure.
