Having a professional skipper can add to
your experience of cruising by taking a lot of the pressure of
you as a new comer to the area.The skipper will not dictate your
route to you but he or she will offer advice as to the suitability
of your route taking into account the weather and possible diversions.You
can if you wish let the skipper take you on a general cruise and
be freed of the need to plan your route so carefully.
A professional skipper can be used as a
valuable teaching aid in order to improve your own confidence,
watch the way they leave the dock, the rope handling and their
skill in looking for potential problems from the off. Even having
a skipper for a day can take much of the strain off you on the
first day of your cruise.
