At C-MASTERS, we have created a selection of 'must do' courses. After several years of providing training we know which topics and skills are considered complex by students. Most of these topics are covered in the RYA shorebased courses and in practical courses. However, a more intensive training is needed to become a confident skipper.


Sailing holidays in Mediterranean countries on a chartered boat are absolutely marvelous. However, they can quickly turn into a disaster when you are not skilled enough to handle challenging situation such as mooring and anchoring. Your goal should be to enjoy a relaxing vacation and come back from your holiday with good memories and with a sense of achievement. This course is designed to do precisely this, targeting situations and areas where people usually fail and teaching you how to avoid or deal with holiday-disasters.

This course is highly recommended for anyone who wants to go on a sailing holiday in the Mediterranean.
