Hercules Sailing now offers a unique practical path for those students wishing to extend their Astro theory knowledge and practise their sights en-route.

Ocean Practises with Hercules Sailing

Our Ocean Practises is aimed at those wishing to experience not purely mile building but hands on longer passage making elements.

This caters for both leisure sailors and those seeking advancement of their professional skills towards Chief Mate 3000 as an example.  Many of our previous students have progressed upwards to positions of responsibility on SuperYachts following their achievement of the RYA/MCA Yachtmaster Ocean qualification.

Included in the 6 days will be:-

Sextant familiarisation 

Sight taking

Watch keeping

Weather interpretation

Preparing for an Ocean voyage

This is not a 600 mile qualifying passage for students looking for an Ocean endorsement, but will be ideal for refreshing skills prior to any oral examinations. If all the pre-requirements are already satisfied, we can arrange the Ocean Oral examination upon return to Gibraltar.
