Our well-known instructor, Boris Milenkovic, has confirmed his sailing skills and knowledge with the new RYA certifications. From this season, he will also perform as an instructor at RYA Competent Crew and Day Skipper courses. This is going to be a great sailing season! After attending the basic course at ANA years ago he was crystal clear that this is something he wants to do. One course followed another soon to become a helping instructor at the base. Some more [...]
Application for boaters
The modern way of living has taught us to appreciate free time. Sometimes we don’t have as much as we want, so we want to it on active holidays. Or, at least, a part of it.
Sailing skills development...
For almost 30 years, we have been creating future sailors, accompanying them in their initial steps when they fall in love with sailing until their sailing independence and new lifestyle.

RYA sailing course Day skipper and competent crew – fabulous family holiday
Highly recommend a family sailing trip with ANA sailing. My husband and I plus two children (10 and 13) spent the week onboard Nostromo with Tomislav Bradic. It was a wonderful experience with each member of the family learning and achieving something..from competent crew through to day skipper. If you are thinking of sound an RYA course, DO IT HERE! The office staff were helpful, responsive and spoke excellent English. On arrival in Jezera we were met by Tomislav and given a clear overview if the week in store plus a great restaurant recommendation. The week of sailing was absolutely fantastic…beautiful islands, friendly marinas, towns steeped in history, fabulous seafood, dolphins, a night passage…too many highlights to list! This is a family holiday with a difference and we all learned a lot: about sailing, about Croatia, about ourselves and each other.
Thank you Tomislav and ANA for an experience that our children (and their parents) will treasure for ever. We will be back to Jezera soon.
Absolutely hilarious experience! I’ve passed the beginner course and definitely would like to go ahead and pass the advance course. Minimum of theory and maximum of sailing. I’d recommend tho join this school especially for thosewho don’t have or have just a little experience with sailing. It’s what really improve your skills. Just go for it!
Very happy with.
super practical / theory + practise.
Skipper Z.M, was amazing, just a great salute to him.
Extremelly experienced, sincerely, I was really happy to be with him on the boat.
Seriously considering Naprednji Tecaj in 2016.
So well done, I will definitely recommend to all persons, who might be interested for
improvement of their sailings / or beginners,
Thank you for the opportunity in being part of that amazing course. All the skippers in the Academy were very capable,
motivated and highly skilled. I am looking forward to do the rest of the courses in Spring.
Basic sailing course. Great experience. Will definitely come back for the advanced course.
Dear all in ANA,
No suggestions as everything was just perfect!
Special thanks to Sonja for her help with booking on a very short notice and thanks to our instructor Zvone for taking good care of us!
Hvala lijepa vama na svemu! Puno uspjeha!
Basic sailing course

RYA Day skipper course
Quality of course was outstanding.
Vessel could be maintained better.
Very friendly welcome.
Nice place to start course.
I would recommend ANA sailing school to everyone who wants to sail and enjoy sailing, regardless of the experience.
ANA team is very friendly and they made our holiday special and fun!
Wonderful four days of sailing. Damir and Zivko are great instructors and people.
I learned a lot. The crew was excellent. I just truly enjoyed.
Greetings to all and thank you very much.
The RYA Coastal Skipper course was well organised and the boat that we used (“Nostromo”, First 36.7) was adequate for teaching purposes. Although the course managed to cover the RYA syllabus in 5 days, an optional 5 to 10 days prolongation would be very useful to consolidate the experience. This was my first trip to Croatia and I was very impressed. I’LL BE BACK!!!
RYA Competent Crew
Good service, great information and great help for accommodation and taxi.
Special thanks to Vedrana and Sonja, who help for the above mentioned services.
Also I was very please that we got a Supper Skill, Famous Instructor “Šime” who is
gentle and nice, though not always with smile but who always consider our mooring fees.
Basics of sailing
We had an excellent time on our beginner’s course last week. It was better than we expected.
It was challenging physically and during the practical exercises, but this was a good thing – we learned so much.
Our instructor (Ivan) was particularly good, especially with our two teenage sons.It was a very well-structured course

I had a perfect time during my sailing course. Thank you for the perfect organisation.
Hope to see you next time.
Congrats for a good job also!
We do with no problems our first week of chartering by ourseves after your trainig.
Please send all of our thanks for Zvone and Zivko for all the training and friendship days! Beautiful people you have there!
Totally met my expectations. I find it great, that you started the course with only 2 students. We seem to have picked a good time of the year as well: A week of perfect wind for this course. Zvone seemed a bit reserved in the beginning but we soon learned to love his experience and humour.
