One of the best ways to get some immersive sailing training is to take a sailing vacation with your own friends and family and a dedicated professional sailing instructor who can coach everyone on board to the level they desire.
And, when you think about it, considering the non-breathable properties of water, it is the prudent thing to do. All too often we get calls from people wanting to skipper a boat on a sailing vacation with out the proper experience. Yet they insist. And quite possibly because they don’t know there is a better option. The better option is to hire a professional training skipper who, through out the week, will give you all the helm time you want and help you become a safe and knowledgeable skipper yourself through a real immersive process. You can take the all the level of responsibility you desire but the professional is there to guide you and be your coach.
Other advantages of a professional skipper are:
- They know all the best (and tiny secret) places to go.
- They can teach you practical tricks that you will never forget
- They are usually good entertainers and story tellers
- They will make your friends and family feel safe
- If anything out of the ordinary happens, they know what to do and how to handle the situation
- They know the harbor masters and restaurant owners – they can get you places where you could not get on your own
