Once you have passed your RYA Day Skipper course, the next step is to get some experience of being in charge of a yacht without an instructor on board. We have something new to offer in 2009 – the chance to charter a 37 foot yacht from Aegina.
The photographs above are of The Southern Cross, a Sun Odyssey 37. She is based on Aegina and is available for charter by those who have successfully completed an RYA course at Day Skipper level or above.
We know several of our Crew Club members may be interested in this. It’s nice that we can offer it from our home port so that you can spend the first and last nights of your holiday on a Greek island rather than in Kalamaki Marina, next to a noisy main road.
The Southern Cross is a three cabin yacht, in good condition, and has brand new sails this year. She is ideal for a couple or family but will sleep up to six people.
It’s also possible to book to do a sailing course* on the yacht and to ‘sail in company’ with the school during the second week of a fortnight’s holiday.
* at least one person on the yacht must do an RYA Day Skipper course, but the others can do an RYA Competent Crew course. Contact us for the minimum experience required before you could do this course.
These are initial pictures of the yacht. We’ll post more once she is fully cleaned and polished ready for the season. Click on the images to see a larger picture.
Charter prices will be from 1500 – 1800 euro per week. Please contact us for further information and availability.
