Learn all about sailing and navigation on a milebuilder from Amsterdam to Northern Spain (2019) Have you always wanted to know more about navigation and sea sailing? This is your chance. The world largest topsail schooner, the Wylde Swan, is the ideal platform for learning to sail and make skippers choices. You join the watch (keeping) system on board. Depending on your experience, you can function as a watch system leader; of course always under the supervision of our own officers – mates. Every day in the afternoon between 12 and 16 hours, there is a central block of practical lessons, which takes 1,5 hours. Ideally suited for building Yachtmaster Miles.
