Why don`t we learn how to sail in Croatia this September?
Posted August 20th, 2012 - 8:14 pm by from Vienna, Austria (Permalink)
We three (Petra, Krzysztof, Dominik) are going to learn sailing in Croatia at the beginning of this September. We are looking for people willing to join us experiencing wind, sun, sea and fun. Our goal is to learn as much as possible in those 2 weeks. We will be given international certificate at the end (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Certificate_of_Competence).

The course is divided in three parts:
• E-learning module (VOLUNTARY! we three are doing it -> you don't have to if you don't want! then, off course, you do not acquire the license!)
• First week (01.09-08.09) of sailing with instructor who will teach us all the needed knowledge, skills, and magical spells to sail better  (6 people boat, 2 places free).
• Second week (08.09-15.09) of sailing without instructor, where we will change in being skipper on the boat (6 people boat, 3 places free)
Both weeks are round trips in Croatia, with stopping in different ports each day, having dinners and chilling out in the evening together.

The cost of these 2 weeks for renting a boat, skipper instructions, fuel, port fees and mostly all the stuff is ABOUT 2700euros. For now we are three and share this cost (900e each). If we are more this price of course will be divided into five (550e each).

What is not included is transportation there and food (we plan to keep it low and cook for ourselves most of times).

If you want to join please write email to http://www.couchsurfing.org/people/dominik_sarapata/
If you have more people we can rent more boats and make fun trip together...
