Sportküstenschifferschein (SKS), Baltic Sea

This training sailing trip with concluding practical exam for the Sportküstenschifferschein (SKS) (sport-coastal ship-licence) has been part of the program at University Sports since 2007 and is aimed at all students who have already had first experiences aboard a sea-going sailing yacht and wish to gain further valuable knowledge as they enter into the sport of yachting, particularly participants of the theory course in the winter.

A high quality of training is our top priority. For this reason we will take the time during our two week trip to not only rack up the necessary miles, but also practice the manoeuvers required for the exam, ensuring that they can be safely performed by the entire crew. Additionally, we will learn how to apply in practice theoretical knowledge in navigation, seamanship, maritime law and weather. And last but not least we will also be teaching you how to organize and run a group sailing trip. So, we won’t be sailing “just for the credit”.

The Baltic Sea is the ideal area for the SKS training, as it’s not only right on the doorstep, but also offers a beautiful and varied landscape and plenty of characteristics valuable for practice: navigationally challenging waters, seamarks, commercial shipping and correspondingly beautiful light show at night.

The cruise starts and ends in Greifswald, while the exam will take place in Stralsund. Containing the Bay of Greifswald, Rügen, Bornholm (Denmark), Stettin Lagoon and Usedom, the sailing area is less well known, but therefore all the more worthwhile for us to discover.
