Great Journey of Pleasure Sailing School in Baltic Sea has been finished today.
During 2 weeks' long trip 675 nautical miles are covered. Visited harbors:
highest experienced wind - 15 m/s. Warm weather and gently winds mostly dominated
in July 2010, in general sufficient to sail and deficient for deep reefing.
Trainees have proofed their ability to plan their journey: today in western
Baltic is 22 m/s Northerly wind, gusting up to 28 m/s, but we are in the right
place at the right time.
Recently School trainees have finished their 4 weeks training in Croatia (Central
Dalmatic). The short movie might be seen there
(Save Target as..., and run this .mpg with Video player), or from You
Tube. This year we have had wind up to 35 knts, rain, sun bathes etc.
Successful experience in warm waters this year pushed our mind further and
next year we are going to explore flotilla sailing experience also in Croatia.
It's a marvelous water, friendly locals, good sea food and a lot of fun.
