We are conservatives
We are conservative in a good sense.
We do not plunge our students into hypnotical sleep, we do not lie about "new and progressive methods", we do not ask to set up apps and study while driving to work, we do not teach them to lay tracks in smartphones, tablets and other interesting gadgets — we are sure that all our students will cope with their devices independently. But first of all, they should learn to think for themselves and take decisions all by themselves.
We give the marine science through paper maps, light towers, bearings and compass just like it was given 10, 20 and 50 years ago. This knowledge will stay with you forever. Even if your smartphone dies or your deck plate is struck by lightning.
Our course leavers can not only google or peep the information — they already know everything and immediately take informed decisions!
Standard long training
Unlike our competitors, we do not reduce our training program and do not teach newbies for skippers just for one week...
The fact is true: no matter how many physicians would gather around a woman, she will not deliver a baby earlier than after nine months. And if she does it earlier, the baby may be not healthy.
This is the case of education too. Until the student gains his knowledge through suffering, feels it on his fingertips and records his skills in psychomotor reflexes – he can't be called even a young skipper and moreover he can't take responsibility for other people.
We never cut corners on quality!
In our school, the standard duration of practical training is 14 days, which fully allows to gain all necessary skills. While many schools devote to practice, as the most expensive part of the training, just from 4 to 10 days.
Easily geographically accessible
GoSailing is the only school working across two visa-free countries: Turkey and Montenegro. There are regular and charter flights from all European countries. In case the customer gathers the whole group (or pays for it), he or she can choose any water area of training by preference.
Token advance payment
Upon the order of the training you make just a prepayment – as a rule, it makes 100-200 euro per one training week – and this will be confirmation of your intent. 80% of payment for the training is made directly on the training yacht. If you book your training less than one week before the start of the training, no prepayment is needed except your flight tickets.
Transparent price list
Only in our school, most options are included into the cost of training and there are no other unmentioned expenses.
No marketing, no tricks, no commercial deceit!
Our course leavers received skipper certificates of the ISSA system. Unlike the course leavers of other systems, they will not have to repay each 5 years for reissuing of their certificates.
Certificates of RYA and ISSA have no expiration date!
Direct contact with our director
Only our school has no land-based girls with painted nails. Over the telephone, in the chat and on the website, you will always get a reply from our director, or, in extreme cases, from any trainer. For us it's easier to pay for roaming service than for mistakes of our employees.
We work all year round!
We do not depend on winter sleep of charter companies. In the hot summer and in the mild and wet Mediterranean winter with strong winds, you can come and take the wheel of our yacht. And this is our many years' experience!
All levels of captain's permission!
We are not one of hundreds of schools that train captains of beginner level only! We provide the whole range of training courses: from seaman to offshore and trainer's levels.
Theory and practice => on board
Theory and practice are not separated in time and are given simultaneously during one sailing course. Theory materials can be studied remotely before the training starts as it's always easier to remember than to learn. We do not take any extra payment for this
We do not boat sardines in a tin!
We say "no" to "squeezed but pleased" on board!
- Each student can choose a convenient class of service and the number of students taking the course together on board. Economy class has up to 6 students (double lodging). Business class has up to 4 students (a cabin for each student). VIP is the whole yacht for one student and his family!
Second chance is for free!
Our school is proud that almost 100% of our students pass exams successfully. That is not because we give out certificates to any dabster. If you fail your exam after two weeks of training, you will be able to come for a week while low season for free (second half of November-March). This will allow you to polish your skills and pass the examination.
Brush up on your skills? - 400 euro
Only our course leavers can return on board of the yacht known by them and brush up on their knowledge and, what's more important, practical skills, before the start of new charter season just for 400 euro(on our special offer)
If you've forgotten out and away!
If you've forgotten out and away!
If you got your diploma but haven't practiced for several years and forgotten OUT and AWAY, especially for you we have a one week course to refresh forgotten knowledge (do not confuse with repeated training), which will help you to make "TOTAL RECALL"
of what you were taught in our school.
