Off-shore license - practise cruise
In order to put theory into practise we offer training cruises. Routing, crew management and sailing manoeuvres are some of the points that will be practised on the ocean in combination with watching dolphins and enjoying sunsets. As soon as the catamaran will be ready to sail in mid 2018, we will publish more details regarding training cruises.

Our Instructors in action
The Ocean Youth Sailing sets high values on a good quality instruction. We assure this on one hand by our longtime experience in teaching teens in the Jugendsegeln Steckborn and OYS, and on the other hand by a professional training of the instructors. A part of the instructors hold the Royal Yacht Master Offshore license and the other part the swiss off-shore license. Therefore, we can combine the practical knowledge of the Royal Yacht Master training with the theory of the swiss off-shore license.
