Probably every second course leaver who has received the certificate of the captain of daytime sailing (Inshore Skipper, Bareboat Skipper, Day Skipper) and traveled around several charter waters, understands that two short weeks in the yachtschool taught him only the basic skills.
Not any school will make you captain. Not for two weeks, not for two months.
The true mastery of skipper requires a lot of efforts and time of the student. But what we can do, if we are already sick of these short day-long charters and strive to go further – across the sea, to cope with the yacht single-handed and sail at night?
To prepare you for such adventures is the task of our Offshore Skipper course, a true master class of high yachting, combining programs of ISSA Offshore Skipper (Skipper of offshore sailing) and our author program of Single Hand Sailing (training of sailing single-handed)
