A two-day course dedicated to all those interested in working on board sailing boats as hostesses and stewards or those who already have experience but want to deepen their knowledge in the yachting world. The most important topics will be covered, from the duties of this important professional figure to how to welcome and make guests feel at ease on board a cruise. Lessons will take place on board sailboats, where it will also be possible to get hands-on experience with the galley and on-board equipment.
