This course takes you far away from the usual classroom environment, to a place where live decisions matter and mistakes have consequences. Training live is crucial for understanding the far leap between a simulated to an actual situation and all curved balls that it may bring about. Our aim is to teach you to prepare and implement measures for longer voyages at sea. Instead of ticking off all the regulation sheet boxes we want to highlight the actual process and practical aspects of creating your safety arrangements. Safety is understanding and implementing.
This course will is organised in the Canaries. We will visit some of the different islands and our aim is to also have the time to explore when not out training. Our aim is to create a relaxed and inspirational atmosphere onboard with space for socialising and discussions.
The course will have Las Palmas de Gran Canaria as base. We will leave and return to Marina de Muelle Deportivo (Las Palmas).
