Advanced Sailing – What will you learn?

Congratulations on the decision! Advanced sailing is a step further into sailing world. It is only a matter of doubt: which program to choose? Advanced Sailing Skills and Navigation or Coastal Sailing and Cruising?

Here is a brief overview of the knowledge and skills you will acquire in this program – Sailing skills and navigation.

Navigation

Navigation is the skill of taking a boat from one place to another. You will adopt the following terms and use in practice:
Geographical latitude
Geographical longitude
Measurement units in navigation
Orientation at sea
Sea charts
Navigation at night

Sailing in course

If we want to sail from a point A to a point B and the wind allows us to do it without manoeuvring, i.e. we sail in a straight line – that means that we sail in course. You will repeat and perfect: luff up, bear away, tack and gybe.

Spinnaker

Very often this type of sail is referred to as an incomprehensible, complicated and expensive sail, very prone to tearing. All of that is true; however, it is also true that the spinnaker is used to increase the boat’s speed when sailing downwind.

Meteorology

Meteorology is the science which investigates weather and weather phenomena in the Earth&’s atmosphere. Term “weather” in its basic sense refers to the changes occurring in the atmosphere, from the sea level to the height of about 10 to 11 km above sea level.

You will practice rescue at sea, and for the practice purpose, we’ll use the buoy.
