Mile building: Athens — Bar

The route from Athens to Bar is 350 nautical miles.

This voyage is a good practice for both the Bareboat Skipper Sail and the Yacht Master Coastal. We would recommend it to beginner skippers only if they had previous experience. In addition to the basic standard practical training program, here you will have the opportunity to have night shifts under the supervision of an experienced captain. You will learn how to plan the crossing, taking into account legal formalities: how to open and close borders, how to prepare all the documents, what you need to pay attention to. You will learn to plan marina stays, refueling and buying food.

Since the voyage is about 350 miles, and we will have a little more than a week, you will have enough free time to explore the cities and ports which we will visit. You will not regret if you arrive in Athens a little earlier, and fly away from Bar a little later, this is the starting and finishing point of our route.

Practical program. It can vary in complexity depending on the crew. But in any case, it can be suitable for all levels.

* Yacht design and marine terminology in English and Russian. (So that you can talk to the charter company and understand the commands of a foreign skipper)

* Preparation for going to sea (check-in, inspection of the yacht, purchase of products)

* Work on the deck (setting sails, changing sails)

* Work with the helm 

* Navigation

* Planning of the crossin

* Maneuvering

* How to act in an emergency

* Mooring, anchoring

* What they don’t write in textbooks or Good marine practice.

In addition to training, you will have interesting conversations, enjoy the gentle spring sun and sea. But even if the weather is not great there is pleasure and adrenaline in cold and strong winds.
