2019 MILE BUILDER EVENTS
Our focus is that you are able to safely and confidently skipper a yacht in all weather conditions; day or night. Furthermore, we strongly believe that in order to become a good skipper, you must first have all the seamanship and nautical skills of a good sailor. To gain these skills, you will be expected to rotate between all crew positions and under the guidance of your skipper/instructor, you will learn how to trim your sails, perform sailing maneuvers, use weather forecasts, navigate using GPS and paper maps, perform harbor maneuvers, anchor and lastly, how to manage your crew.
Because of our racing background, we want you to do all of the above and at the same time, enjoy sailing very fast! And finally, since this is your holiday after all, we’ll visit some of the most picturesque areas of the Cyclades and depending on the season, swim in beautiful anchorages!
Our program is to check-in at the yacht, which is moored at Olympic Marine in Lavrion, on Saturday afternoon. After spending the night at port, we will start our journey during which we will visit Kythnos, Paros, Milos, Serifos and Poros (240nm) or Kythnos, Syros, Sifnos, Milos and Serifos (190nm) before returning the boat at Olympic Marine on Friday evening.
On each day of the journey we will be setting sail in the morning towards our next destination at which we should be arriving in the afternoon. After spending the night at port, we will continue sailing on the next day. Some night sailing should be expected during the latter part of the event.
