Cruise & Learn (Van Level 3 5 Day Sail)

5 Days of Fun on the water

This LEVEL THREE course is essentially about pushing your limits beyond the “harbour to harbour” cruising to the upper boundaries of adventure. By exploring the intricacies of sail trim, weather and even night sailing, you and your team will be pushed along towards the next level of seamanship.

This course is carried out on our vessel, Alegria X, which is owned by one of our top instructors. Its purpose is to be the platform to mind better sailors.

This program is delivered in three unique formats: a Weekend Warrior experience over two consecutive weekends, a 5-day journey, and also as part of the LEVEL THREE ULTIMATE ADVENTURE 14-day circumnavigation (See Offshore Course). The experience and memories of this course are unparalleled.
