A course dedicated to enthusiasts, shipowners and skippers. Accurate maintenance and continuous inspection of the various onboard systems are essential for a safe navigation, but it is also important to be prepared to intervene in case of emergencies or breakdowns. We will deal with the most common breakdowns from a theoretical as well as practical point of view, focusing on how to intervene, solve or contain difficult situations on board. The course includes practical lessons in the classroom and on 40, 45 and 50 feet boats with simulations and direct interventions.
