Sailing Masterclass Croatia with Guy Waites

Duration: 7 days
View Dates

A week of hands-on sailing with an experienced ocean skipper starting and ending in Split, Croatia.

This could be the perfect mix of summer sun and hands-on adventure sailing!

The trip starts and ends at the bustling and beautiful city of Split. It promises to be a real sailing masterclass hosted by experienced skipper Guy Waites who just finished the Golden Globe Race 2022 sailing solo around the world!

Prepare to be fully immersed in all aspects of sailing from passage planning to provisioning and of course some incredible sailing aboard a beautiful yacht.

Expect a relaxed schedule with time to stop at some of the wonderful ports along the coast and explore at leisure and, with a maximum of six crew, the skipper will adapt the itinerary to suit individual wishes.

The yacht is a beautiful Elan Impression 45 –  sleeping up to 10 people although on these adventures they sail with a maximum of 6 guests to ensure everyone has space and comfort on board.

This trip is great for solo travellers and couples (with two single cabins and two double cabins available so solo travellers get their own cabin). No previous sailing experience is required.

Given the skipper is a fully qualified instructor, it will also suit people who want to get some practice sailing miles or hone their existing sailing skills. During the voyage there will be a night sail and opportunity to practice celestial navigation.

Accommodation

Your home is a beautiful Elan Impression 45 –  sleeping up to 10 people although we sail with a maximum of 6 passengers to ensure everyone has space and comfort on board. The trip suits singles and couples (we have double and single cabins available).

Meals

This voyage is designed for you to take an active role – that means everyone will take turns in cooking (all the menus are planned already and step by step instructions given, so you don’t need to be a masterchef!)

Who is this trip for?

You do not need any previous sailing experience for this trip – it is a ‘hands-on’ sailing trip under the expert guidance of a very experienced Skipper who will adapt to your wishes.

Tour operator

There are few places as wild and unexplored as the open ocean. And if you’re going to explore it you’ll want to do so with an accomplished and experienced skipper alongside you at the helm. The skippers bringing these small group (max 6 guests) ocean voyages to life have at least half a million nautical miles under their belts so you’ll be learning from the best. Think small groups, amazing destinations and incredible ocean experiences. Whether you want the mileage for an RYA Ocean qualification, the thrill of taking a small boat to incredible destinations or the privilege of a sailing masterclass with hugely experienced skippers by your side, they’ll make it happen.
