You will take full advantage of the different aspects of life on board while training in the techniques necessary for autonomy on a sailboat. The on-board instructor adapts his instructions according to the level and objectives of each team member (weather, point on the nautical chart with and without GPS, settings, etc.).
Our boats are equipped with an Iridium Go with unlimited data plan (emails and texts), tracking for your loved ones so that they can follow your progress, offshore pharmacy, grab bag, diesel cans, spinnaker, staysail, gennaker, Watt&Sea hydrogenerator for the Pogo and watermaker for the RM, solar panel,…
To the price of the crossing is added the food (about 15 to 20€/day/person including the skipper’s, less if the fishing is good!), the return plane ticket depending on the direction of the crossing (take one editable).
OPEN SAIL bears the cost of fuel, stopover costs and final cleaning.
If you do not already have an FFVoile license or a Sailing Passport valid for the current year, you will need to provide 15€ for the FFVoile Passport insurance which will also allow you to receive a certification booklet at the end of the course.
You will discuss safety (technical management of the sailboat, specific maneuvers), navigation (point on the nautical chart, weather forecast, taking into account the tide, monitoring the logbook, use of on-board electronics, …), techniques (manoeuvres and adjustments of spinnaker, gennaker, staysail, reduction, …), night navigation on watch, fishing, etc.
The purpose for the trainees is generally a rental, a purchase of a boat, the integration of a crew for a cruise or quite simply the pleasure of knowing how to sail aboard a sailboat in complete safety.
Sailing across the Atlantic: the experience of a lifetime!
