Who are we?

We are Andu and Perju.

Our passion for the sea and sailing brought us together in 2010 and since then we have been bound by a friendship that can only be formed at sea. We have launched together several projects related to sailing and always born from our real experience as skippers and organizers of flotilla events, always trying to complete and innovate the market of holidays at sea.

 
Together with Sailarmada.com and Capetancharter.comthe CAPETAN Club project is designed to underpin all our sailing investments and is the starting point for this magical phenomenon we call sailing.

our history

First charter

It was the year I first got in touch with everything that a sailing boat means, the sea, the wind, the sailing. It was enough for a first outing to realise that this "virus" was to last in our life to come.

2010

Events, flotillas, miles under the keel

We are building in parallel two sailing initiatives, with the main action being the organisation of flotillas, real floating events. We organise charter weeks all over the Meditarranean reaching as far away as Thailand and the Caribbean.

2011-2015

First training

Introducing the first dedicated training week charter skippers, laying a solid foundation for an intensive and extensive training programme, aiming to improve participants in a relatively short time through practice and standardisation.

2016

Capetan Skippers' Elite

We are leaving the sailing brands we work with and coming together under our own innovative concept. This is how Capetan Skippers' Elite is born. It is the first and only "Charter Skipper Training", to which we dedicate all our initiatives and training programmes.

2017

Sail Armada - exquisite tailored sailing events

We are setting off with a different concept, a platform dedicated to Capetan-trained skippers and all those who want to discover the sea and sailing. It is born Sail Armada , an initiative dedicated to sailing concepts, organising established events such as WildRoute, Discover or KidSailing; concept events that help our community grow bigger and bigger.

2018

Capetan Crew

Start a programme dedicated to young people . We follow their training as competent crew along with the necessary skills specific to a charter week.

2020

Capetan.club is our foundation

Every success story has a solid foundation. The basis of our foundation is CAPETAN.club, and is a specialised training school for charter skippers.

Ultimately, the whole concept of sailing, whether it's a flotilla or a private charter, revolves around the skipper. The skipper is your personal link to this amazing phenomenon.

Our focus since 2010 has been on standardizing and refining what it takes to be a competent charter skipper. We have created a specific training school and modules for our skippers, modules that combine safety, seamanship, intensive practice and etiquette so that they can become skilled and reliable skippers. CAPETAN.club represents the sailing ladder that any professional charter skipper should climb to obtain the necessary skill set to enable him/her to lead your private charter week.

All our trainers at CAPETAN.club are RYA Yachtmaster certified

undergo extensive training sessions and over time succeed in creating skippers we can be proud of and recommend to carry our name forward. Not only do we train competent skippers who can get you safely from A to B, but we also work with people you will enjoy spending time with, who are there for you throughout the week, able to understand and meet your needs.

All Capetan certified skippers that will be part of your sailing holiday have undergone extensive training during Hands On Practice Training and Hands On Practice Advanced Training ; all have at least 2000 miles as skipper in private or fleet events; are ICC and RYA certified, with a planned continuous qualification. As we say, sailing is a language that requires lifelong learning.
