Experience Builder

"Mediterranean sailing from Barcelona to Croatia"


Crossing the western Mediterranean, via mythical places!



This is the ideal opportunity for all future Yachtmasters and for Day Skippers to build up nautical miles and enjoy sailing trips with a high experience level.



Fancy sun and the Mediterranean blue? We have crewplaces for some trainees who do not want to make tidal calculations for a while and want to be a bit more stable on board.

Come onboard of a beautiful catamaran, on which a beautiful view is guaranteed!

No tides? But there are currents and unpredictable winds! This is of course a challenge for all sailors from Day Skipper trainees to future Yachtmasters. Tour planning, sailing knowledge, communication, safety, life-on-board, all syllabus chapters are discussed during this 1500 NM passage.

The C-Masters skipper instructor will guide you in your personal program and ambitions, whether your skills are at Competent Crew level or you already have your Yachtmaster ticket.
Can this luxurious catamaran and the sun seduce you? Please do not hesitate to contact….


The beautiful and fast sailing Nautitech 40 catamaran has spacious cabins and a large saloon. We can accommodate up to 3 participants in shared cabins, unless there are couples or friends who have no problem sharing one of the large cabins.


The route of this experience builder

This is a passage from west to east, departing from the Barcelona region, through the Balearic Islands, via the turquoise waters of Sardinia, along the mythical aeolian islands of Sicily, the infamous Strait of Messina, and so on around the boot of Italy through the enchanting Croatian archipelago to Pula.

We are certainly scheduling a few passages of minimum 60 NM, and of course there are also some night-time passages.

Please note: this is an experience building trip where we look forward to offer you the opportunity to build up as much as possible confidence in yacht handling and navigation. The destinations are amazing and provide for great natural discovery.
