'Buccaneers' Sail Camps (16-18)
Summer Expedition 2021 "Buccaneers Programme"
14 day Expedition in Greece
The Greek Islands are any sailor's dream destination: warm weather, azure Mediterranean waters, and friendly people on 6000+ islands seemingly scattered by the Gods themselves, the Aegean and the Cyclades bring you exciting new experiences every day.
A 14 day Summer Sail Camp expedition is the perfect way to learn how to sail, meet new friends, and have a perfect summer adventure, and not only discover about yourself but about the marine environment we heavily rely on. Like all Sail Camps it is bursting with fun and with adventures.
You will join us and other 'Buccaneer' adventurers (a 6-8 person crew) on board one of our 40ft Yachts. Take the helm, set the sails, navigate by the stars as your explore the famous creeks and harbours, and smugglers coves, of this region on a summer adventure to remember. You will spend the nights either sleeping on board your yacht or at selected camp sites on route.
All food is included, and as part of Sail Camp you will learn how to prepare and cook may tasty meals.
You will also learn how to Sail and the basics of Navigation, and could end up with RYA Competent Crew or if you have some prior experience RYA Day Skipper. The RYA shorebased course "Essential Navigation and seamanship " syllabus is also followed during the 14 days.
Along with RYA tuition you will receive on board by one of our top instructors, you will learn about micro plastics and marine science, undertake experiments in water salinity helping to conduct a marine biology and beach health check of this region.
