Yacht Training

Being the proud owner of an MCA-approved IYT Certificate means : you have achieved the knowledge and ability to use a yacht anywhere in the world, your license will be accepted by many countries, insurance and charter companies; and most of all, will gain the respect of fellow sailors… 

The Yachtmaster license was created in 1971 and since then it has been a trademark for respectable sailors worldwide. MCA recognizes both IYT and RYA as a Yachtmaster school system. Therefore, the Yachtmaster is the most widely known and used sailing license in the world. Some insurance companies even do not insure a yacht without the skipper having an MCA-approved sailing license. The same goes for many charter companies, port authorities and the coast guard. For these reasons, even yacht owners are now obtaining Yachtmaster licenses.  

It is usually difficult to understand a skippers’ knowledge, ability and experience without sailing together but the Yachtmaster license will prove a standard base of nautical knowledge. It is said that  the Yachtmaster License is something that every knowledgeable skipper should have.   








Why wait, Life doesn't!

Pablo Neruda's Poetry

He who becomes the slave of habit,
who follows the same routes every day,
who never changes pace,
who does not risk and change the color of his clothes,
who does not speak and does not experience,
dies slowly.

He or she who shuns passion,
who prefers black on white,
dotting ones "it's" rather than a bundle of emotions, the kind that make your eyes glimmer,
that turn a yawn into a smile,
that make the heart pound in the face of mistakes and feelings,
dies slowly.

He or she who does not turn things topsy-turvy,
who is unhappy at work,
who does not risk certainty for uncertainty,
to thus follow a dream,
those who do not forego sound advice at least once in their lives,
die slowly.

He who does not travel, who does not read,
who does not listen to music,
who does not find grace in himself,
she who does not find grace in herself,
dies slowly.

He who slowly destroys his own self-esteem,
who does not allow himself to be helped,
who spends days on end complaining about his own bad luck, about the rain that never stops,
dies slowly.

Let's try and avoid death in small doses,
reminding oneself that being alive requires an effort far greater than the simple fact of breathing.

Only a burning patience will lead
to the attainment of a splendid happiness.
