Jakobs Ladder

 

As one of the participants of said youth training I can highly recommend the whole program! I really enjoyed that week onboard the 49ft Juljia II, which provided more than enough space for the 6 participants, the coach, and Bob, our skipper. We were always given the opportunity to discuss travel plans and navigate on our own. After an obligatory introduction and explanation of sailing basics, Bob let us explore and learn by trial and error while making us feel safe all the time due to his subtle presence. We could always ask for Bob’s help or advice, and besides being a great skipper he often had a good story to tell. Although I already had some sailing experience, I learned a lot of advanced stuff in this week, ranging from maneuvering under motor at the port to perfect sail trimming.
The leadership part of the training was very interesting and definitely helped me with issues regarding myself and the way I want to lead.
Many leadership topics were embedded in sailing maneuvers, which was a good way to reflect the things we learned before.
Together with the marvelous landscape around Croatia’s islands, the sea and the sun, the constant action aboard led to a very intense and exhausting trip, but you are rewarded with great sunsets and a group you will always be able to rely on.
In conclusion, I’m so glad I came across this offer! It definitely changed me and my world.
