Gratitude for a great experience I had, learning during your fun and very intensive course.
Aleksander Tomas
Yachtmaster Coastal IYT

Greg Aslett
Boat`s owner
The best place to learn sailing!.
Thanks a lot, Roman and Tatiana Kaverina for your patience, professionalism and good vibes! I definitely will recommend it to everyone and hopefully will come back for the next learning stage!
Koren Aisenstadt
Bareboat Skipper IYT
Yacht-challenge - is the best training and international certification for beginners to sail a yacht in the Baltic. Good combination of theory and practice. Most importantly, in practice, the right emphasis is placed, for example, on safety and mooring. Highly Recommended!
Vladimirs Poborcevs
Bareboat Skipper IYT
Slava was a super captain! I appreciated his ability to allow students to explore a topic without undue pressure from him. At the same time, he always seizes the initiative on time when the situation requires it. I began to feel more confident (especially after entering and mooring in Bourges with a 30+ wind). Hope to continue next year!
Dmitry Kravchenko
Yachtmaster Offshore IYT
Slava is very unusual for a captain-instructor, because there is absolutely no aggression in him. Slava is rather quiet, does not insist on anything, but knows how to explain very well. Everyone was wearing life jackets and life belts, of course. I definitely went beyond the limits of my capabilities. Not a single yacht trip gave us such a great sea practice!
Natali Likhushina
Yachtmaster Coastal IYT

A yacht cruise is new emotions and sensations, a new look at the world from the water, fabulous sails, and impressions of a lifetime!
