Something that is sure to be of interest to all sailors in Croatia this summer is the news that Split based non-profit organisation Green Sail have launched a free online course titled Yacht Charter: An Introduction to Croatia.
The course combines the knowledge and experience of professional yacht skippers and the established Green Sail team to help all sailors who are new to Croatian waters. The course will provide a concise and informative introduction to the unique world of sailing green in Croatia.
With the wonderfully calm Adriatic Sea and numerous islands and islets, it’s no surprise that sailing is a popular type of holiday and sport in Croatia – and elsewhere around the globe. Sailing in a new country can be daunting and confusing, so the Yacht Charter: An Introduction to Croatia course is an ideal way for first-time sailors in Croatia to learn about the specifics of sailing in this country, and to help reduce the risks onboard.
Everyone that completes the short 20 minute course will be well equipped to set sail in Croatia safely and efficiently with more confidence. You will also reduce the risk of damage onboard your charter yacht (possibly incurring additional costs) and will have an increased awareness of environmental sustainability issues involved with sailing.
The Yacht Charter: An Introduction to Croatia course will cover technical topics such as safety equipment onboard, using your bow thruster and how to dock and moor in Croatia. However, the course will also teach sailors about important environmental issues in the country such as how and when to release black and grey waters, anchoring near Posidonia Oceanica, waste reduction onboard and the importance of recycling
Green Sail is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to promoting the development of responsible nautical tourism in Croatia and abroad.
