Skipper training session, milebuilding, passages, night sailing
We are set sail from Achillio, heading East, to Northern Sporades archipelagos, reaching Skiathos, Skopelos, Alonissos, Skyros, Evia. This event is perfect for gaining experience and skills improvement. We will try only to sail and manually steer the boat, as more as possible not to make use of the engine and autopilot.
Also, the chartplotter will be turned off and will learn how to navigate with printed maps and compass, make routes, watch schedule and crew's duties. Reaching different locations will allow us to make different docking styles like alongside docking, stern to quay using anchor, stern to quay with mooring line, bay anchoring. Not in the last time, will learn how to manage the food, drinks, how to cook on board, when and how to clean the boat.
Skippered sailing yacht, Ready for holiday! Haimana, a Gib'Sea 43 made by Dufour, is a very spacious cruising yacht with an interesting and flexible interior layout and a spacious cockpit with twin wheels. The design was awarding a Cruising Sailboat of the Year award when introduced, and with 14 ft beam carried well aft is able to have two good double cabins aft, plus a very clever 'convertible' layout forward, where the forward part of the boat can be either one large en-suite cabin plus seating, or be split into two separate cabins, one double, one Pullman-style twin. She can accommodate up to 8 guests in 4 cabins and saloon.
