Maneuvering Skills

Skipper is obligated to demonstrate his skills in maneuvering the yacht in marina or port during check-in. It consists in the fact that shortly before the scheduled departure, in the presence of an Operator employee, the skipper shows that he has a control over the yacht. In the situation of a negative assessment of the Operator employee, the skipper is obligated to purchase 1,5-hour training and if the training would not bring any progress, he is obliged to take skipper from Charter Company according to the price list. In such case, the cost of training covers the first day of skipper work. Arranging new skipper may last up to 24-hours, however in case of lack of available skipper Charter might be cancelled; Operator does not take responsibility for delay, change in Charterer sailing plan or its cancellation.

Briefings

Once all document and payment procedures are finished we continue check-in procedures. We conduct briefings in order to audit the condition of the boat, inventory, inform about the weather conditions, mooring and anchoring spots, sailing procedures in the Seychelles and give other useful advices. Briefing is divided into three parts:

  • Inventory Check;
  • Technical Briefing;
  • Chart Briefing.

We make every effort to ensure that the boat provides the highest quality and that you are fully informed about all the most important matters related to sailing in the Seychelles.
