BENEFITS OF SAILING IN The Boat Trip FLEET

By sailing in the fleet of dozen vessels you gain numerous perks
in comparison to sailing alone or even with couple of boats. 

AWESOME PARTIES WHEREVER YOU WANT!

You can make your own party wherever you like! You don't have to look for a special place, the best club in the area or a spot where no one will bother you! Being in a large group we can have fun with our own DJ at any time so we make our own parties! On a yacht, on anchorage, on a beach or in a beach-bar, on a pier or in a club - wherever, whenever you want!

plenty of integration opportunities!

Additional advantage of a large fleet is the chance to mingle and socialize with more than just your own crew! You get a chance to swap a boat for some time, meet more people, party in a new company and form relationships that last! There's wide variety of opportunities - common anchorages and marinas, tours and activities, attractions and parties!

assistance of other SKIPPERs!

Especially valuable is the help from other skippers. Your colleagues will be more than happy to explain, direct and show you whatever you might need. They will be up and ready to help with getting in the harbor if your crew is made out of landsman and will point you to the best bars and taverns.

fleet support!

Apart from the skippers, the staff consists of: DJ's, light and sound directors, coordinators, photographers and other helpers. They'll gladly help you with anything, e. g. formalities or technical difficulties, support you in contacting boat owner or harbor authorities.

PERFECT ORGANIZATION!

Upon arrival everything is ready and waiting for you and your crew! You don't have to worry about booking a place in the marina, organizing free time for your crew, looking for interesting things to see or do in the visited town nor fish for evening entertainments. Everything is set and waiting!

number advantage!

As a big group we have a vary good position for negotiations and group deals, such as mooring discounts, special offers in the bars and restaurants, reduced prices in bike or scooter rentals, exclusive club parties or gently bending the rules of curfew in a harbor...

how to become a skipper:

option  #1
graduate from the SKIPPERs' academy

If you wanna sail as a skipper in the most beautiful places on Earth, discover new countries and experience something unique, then  the best first step in that direction would be graduating from the Skippers' Academy.

Skippers' Academy is an intense advanced yacht handling course organized by TBT twice a year. Training program mainly consist of tight harbor maneuvers and the crew management.

Skippers' Academy allows participants to significantly improve their skills and gain necessary certificates. It also allows us to assess and evaluate future skipper candidates.

OPtion #2
GATHER A CREW OF YOUR FRIENDS

If you own all necessary certificates (at least RYA Offshore and Maritime Radio Short Range Certificate or other equal licenses) and you are able of gathering a crew of your friends willing to sail and party under your command, mail as at info@theboattrip.com in order to make all arrangements and sign up for the trip!

During the trip you can count on help of other skippers and staff, but remember that you'll hold the final responsibility for the boat and the crew. If you do well during this first trip, you can be sure to find yourself on the next Boat Trips as a skipper. If you're not sure about your skills and abilities, we recommend you take the Option #1 and get more practice.
