Youth Sea School
Join us this summer for a fun week of learning at sea and get introduced to the yachting industry.
You will learn how to drive a boat and practice on a 6.5-meter Capelli, ride jet ski, gain essential first aid skills, get familiar with basic knots and splicing, and finish the week by snorkeling in the crystal blue water of the Mediterranean Sea.
For 16 - 19 years old.
The Youth Sea School is designed for youngsters aged between 16 and 19 years old with the goal to introduce them to the activities at sea, equip with watercraft handling skills and teach how to enjoy the maritime life safely. Every day of the Youth Sea School is filled with learning – from driving a tender and jet ski to performing CPR, putting bandages and administering first aid. Apart from practical knowledge the students will have lots of fun swimming, snorkeling, and exploring the nearby islands of Cannes. The hands-on training delivered by our outstanding instructors Sammi and Ged may become a first step for the students to a career or a gap year on superyachts.
