Experience is king. Having done several theory and practical courses is fun and a great way to build up your experience.

But wouldn't it be fantastic if you could share this joy with your family?  Quite often the rest of the family lacks this experience and, when sailing with them, they miss out on the fun.  Unexpected movements of the boat, beeping instruments, large ships crossing, and entering busy marinas and locks, can create stress on board. This could turn what should have been a joyful family boat trip into a miserable event with arguing, fear and sometimes even a lasting fear of sailing.  

To avoid this from happening to your family, we have developed a special program.




Sailing as a family 


Description of this experience builder

We welcome you and your family on a bespoke sailing trip on board of one of our C-MASTERS yachts accompanied by one of our senior instructors. During the course, all family members will learn practical skills and get tasks assigned that meet their capacities and interest. Even the youngest will get actively involved in navigating and sailing the yacht.

Our instructor will make sure that you will have a safe and joyful sailing trip, and that you will start working as a team where every family member will discover his/her hidden skills and a passion for sailing.
