Would you like to learn how to handle a motorboat, jet ski or motor driven sailboat?
ABC Sailing& Boat School has courses for those who want to learn how to drive and manoeuvre a motor boat.
Educational exercises give you the skills to manoeuvre the boat safely even in crowded situations. It is important to learn to be able to assess in advance how the boat behaves depending on speed, turning manoeuvres, buoyancy in the water, wind, waves, etc.
After completing the course, you must be able to demonstrate a large portion of seamanship, drive a
motorboat or motorized sailboat (jet ski), safely between selected berths. You must also be able to manoeuvre the boat in tight spaces at marinas and natural harbours.
You must be able to make wise decisions when it is not appropriate, be able to do certain maneuvers, etc. Your knowledge must be good when it comes to docking with a motorboat with the bow, the stern, the long side towards different piers with and without buoys and Y-booms. It is also important that you can perform a rescue maneuver in the event of an overboard and how to act in the event of a leak or fire on board.
During the 4-hour course, you will mainly learn seamanship and boat manoeuvring.
The first day of the 2-day course consists of theory and practical exercises. Day 2 is carried out as an archipelago tour that offers all conceivable situations at a low speed of 2 knots to a planing speed of 14-15 knots up to a high speed of 25-30 knots.
