At North Adriatic Sailing Academy we offer high quality maritime training. We believe that only the best is good enough, so at our academy the sailing courses are conducted by exceptional instructors and excellent educational yachts X-35 One Design. The course programs are carefully and ambitiously designed to offer our students the best and quickest way to independent sailing under sail.
Sailing courses are performed in smaller groups (in most of the cases there are only four students and an instructor on board of a yacht), which enables individual work and adjusting to each individual student according to his or her knowledge, sailing potential and wishes. Instructor's task is not only the execution of »mandatory« course content but above all transfer of knowledge and performance of practical exercises that enable each and every student the fastest progress possible. Therefore the course programs are mainly a guideline, however we have sailed above and beyond these »guidelines« even in basic training – we have sailed in gale force winds above 30 knots, performed advanced sailing techniques and teached subjects that are usually taught in advanced, offshore or regatta courses
