CRUISES FOR CHILDREN AND YOUTH ? SAILING CAMPUS

CRUISES FOR CHILDREN AND YOUTH ? SAILING CAMPUS

Cruises for children and youth are basically sailing camps where young people have the opportunity to spend their holidays actively, experience sailing and maybe even discover a passion of their lives. It is the part of society that we truly and heartedly aim to acquaint with marine education. To show interesting forms of recreation, to meet them with the world from a perspective other than the already familiar one, to create friendly relationships in a small space - are priceless to young people, especially given that all this teaching and all this fun during the cruise is done in a very close contact with nature. The organization of the cruise for children and youth in first place takes into account the fact that the members potentially do not have any sailing experience or sometimes even swimming skills, which is why all the effort of fixed crew focuses on security.

How does such trip look like? 

 

  • Participants are accurately acquainted with the boat and all the safety rules both when sailing and stationary. The fixed crew is constantly watching over the course of the voyage and security of a crew.
  • Cruise is wandering, so every day we moor in a different port.
  • During the trip we can give sailing courses (master instructor has the authority of PYA ? Polish Yachting Association [pol. PZŻ]), which primarily aim to teach how the wind affects the sails and how it can be used to make the boat move to where we want. Participants can try their best by the steering wheel with an assistance of an instructor and feel the joy of independent steering. We put great emphasis to reassure that children understand and respect the important safety rules, not only during this particular trip but always when they are at sea.
  • When the weather is nice, children who can swim are allowed to play in water of shallow calm bays ? of course under the supervision of a permanent crew. Children who can?t swim remain on board where they can act as e.g. pirates (we provide accessories to play in the water, pirate costumes and board games).
  • After the arrival at the port we organize sightseeing tours around the area, museums  tours or visits to adventure parks when these are nearby.
  • The meals, according to previously obtained tips and hints of parents (breakfast, snacks during the day, dinner) are prepared by the permanent crew under the deck of the yacht, but from time to time we take the kids to the restaurants and cafes, so they are able to taste some of the flavours of the local cuisine which is an essential part of Greek culture.
  • Parents have full and free contact with children in the evening after we arrive to the port of destination (while sailing crew is focused on both the participants and running the yacht it can be difficult or impossible to answer phone calls during the day). There is internet access on the yacht during the stay and therefore all forms of contact through it are also available.
  • Cruise participants are accommodated in two 2-bed cabins and one  4-bed cabin. Messa (living room / kitchen) and two bathrooms (shower / toilet) are a common space.
  • The participants are free to use yacht?s bed linen, towels and soap, magazines, books, Internet and a printer. The only thing you need to bring from home is a beach towel and personal cosmetics, including sun creams necessarily with UV filter 50.
  • At the end of the voyage the whole crew receives a certificate of participation in the cruise and Yacht Club Sail Away Association membership card authorizing for the 5% discount for next yacht cruises on Balaou.
