Practical Navigation and Offshore Course

Season 2022 — 370€



The SOC Sailing Academy arrange Practical Navigation and Offshore courses for those interested in sailing high seas. The aim of the course is to introduce you into navigating and boat handling high seas through learning by doing. We organize courses on request and they last a weekend. The course is especially for those who plan to crew or run a bigger boat in open sea conditions.

We also organize offshore courses with emphasis on racing.

the itinerary contains:

  • basic and advanced safety at open waters
  • routing and navigation
  • sail configuration
  • helming techniques
  • watch systems and running of boat
  • provisioning and preparation
  • radio communication

The outcome is to raise the awareness how to manage and run a yacht on a longer voyage. The racing oriented course emphasizes more into a practical tutorial, building blocks to a racing crew and practical advise to get your boat go faster.


Saturday at 11.00 we gather at the boat and go through part of the security, get accustomed to the boat and do route planning. After lunch, at 14.oo we slip lines and start the open water part of the course. We return to home port on sunday at 18.00.
