Students deepen confidence gained in the marine environment to face the novelty due to large size boats and life on board. The course is aimed to provide specialized training to use as personal awareness or in preparation for a private license examination. The ultimate goal is the ability to manage independently a crew and a large tonnage boat. Skills achieved: •Proper use and research of weather informations , receipt and use of weather charts, •Checks before you go sailing, •Sail safely and, in case of adverse weather conditions, knowing how and when to seek refuge, •Programming and study a sailing route, keeping the logbook, problems related to cartography, essential bibliography for routing, •Anchoring and mooring in port and at haven: anchorage control and use of the tender as a maneuvering tool, •How to prevent the most common hazards on board, use of safety equipment, •Management and organization on board: pharmacy, galley, essential library , •Know the boat: the most important maintenance and repair of engine, electrical system, plumbing, •Thorough knowledge and use of gear: VHF DSC radio, GPS, EPIRB, Radar. The crew is an indissoluble unity. The complexity of the tasks asks for a constant cooperation and participation of each individual . Each role on board is necessary and respectable: there is not only the master and he has been qualified sailor for many years. Before one (you) assume the management responsibility of the boat, one must be able to perform every role and task as best as one can. Specific skills or knowledge required by the most complex tasks must be learned and realized independently. In this perspective, satisfaction is to achieve a fixed goal through the efforts of the entire crew involved in every step of navigation: food and beverage organization in the galley, supplies, tracing the course on your nautical chart, departure, participation in rounds guard and at the helm, cooperation in the kitchen, updating the logbook, the maneuvers in the sea and in port. Finally, the goal is reached and the crew can experience how the joint efforts can achieve goals before seemed impossible i.e. to reach far away destinations without GPS (though appreciating its tools!).
