We have to overtake the boat across the Atlantic Ocean to participate in regattas on the Caribbean islands.

This is a great opportunity to improve skills, to reel miles, to practice managing the yacht and rigging.

A unique opportunity to spend 3 weeks under the guidance of professional yachts long crossings.

On board will be held master classes and training in all the necessary knowledge for independent yacht management in different weather conditions. If you are already a professional and you need to earn the required number of miles to upgrade your skills and obtain a commercial license, this is an ideal option.

You will receive an entry in the logbook and will be able to show the document on the exam.
