TAMIRO Catamaran Sailing Academy

Sailing catamarans simply offer more comfort than conventional mono-hull yachts. However, a sailing catamaran with a weight of 20 tons and a size of 14x8 meters is not that easy to maneuver and these abilities were not given to us at birth.

We from TAMIRO Academy show you the correct handling and handling of sailing catamarans in various courses.

In our courses we teach the theoretical basics of catamaran sailing. In the practical lessons, we will show you how to safely sail a catamaran, anchor or secure in harbors. A skipper who has the boat under control, is the basis for a stress-free holiday.

For aspiring skippers, who want to obtain the 'certificate of competency and master of sport abd pleasure yachts at sea' (Swiss B-permit), we offer mileage trips, where you can acquire the necessary basics on the 1000 nautical miles (Switzerland) with an experienced skipper.

Skipper-Training

In April 2019 we carry out two skipper trainings on S/C TAMIRO. In a 3 1/2 day training we practice the important maneuvers on the open sea and in the harbor. The training takes place in Kos, which is located in the southeastern part of Greece. Kos can be reached by charter flights or a transfer service in Athens.

T he training is done by an experienced skipper who has been working as a skipper in Greece for several years. He speaks fluent German and English. On the first day we start at 09:00 with theoretical lessons. Then we sail to one of the nearby islands and train there the important and relevant maneuvers. The training ends on the last day at 12:00 noon in Kos, so you have enough time to start the return flight.

Milage-Trips

An experienced sailor does not fall from the sky and practical experience at sea can not only be read - you have to experience it. For this reason, various countries require practical proof of participation in an active maritime command. We at TAMIRO Catamaran offer you the opportunity to deepen your practical experience.

L earn to sail in the open sea with one of our experienced skippers on one of our catamarans. Usually we combine this training with a one-way trip, making the journey more interesting and the trip planning more challenging. As a rule, we sail between 150 and 250 miles per week, depending on the chosen route. The miles are signed-off by our skippers.

During our mileage you will learn the important basics of sailing in open sea under the practical guidance of an experienced skipper. Topics that we deal with during our courses include:

Below you will find an overview of the planned mileage trips. Please note that we require at least 3 people to complete the trips.
