The refresher cruise in the Baltic is designed for all sailors who want to practice port maneuvers, mooring in the marina, trimming the sails or typical navigation. You will also practice night sailing, sailing in shipping lanes and coordinating the crew. The variable weather, waves and wind in a challenging location will test each crew in no time. 

The harsher Baltic Sea is unbridled and can really grab your heart. Are you sailing with us?

Who are refresher cruises for?

  •  People who already have some experience but have not sailed for a long time and want to refresh their skills and knowledge.
  •  Participants of practical courses who have not yet sailed themselves and want to learn something before their first independent voyage.
  •  People who missed out on sailing during the year and will use the cruise to relax and gain more experience.

Why in the Baltic?

  • During the cruise you will experience highly diverse weather.
  • It is a more challenging yachting location than sailing in Croatia.
  • It is the nearest sea to the Czech Republic (from Prague it takes 6 hours by car to the port of Stralsund).
  • Thanks to the short distance and the favourable price of boats, it is the most affordable location.

  • High-quality warm clothing in several layers (e.g., functional clothing from DEVOLD or ICEBREAKER)

  • Warm sleeping bag
