Ocean Sail Training

OXYGENE SAIL Sailing Beyond borders

Oxygene Sail wanted to include in the training program called offshore Sail Training, an advanced course that allows our students to try their hand at long offshore sailing and seafaring exploration. The search for the “Atlantic Breath” brings us back to a traditional navigation, where time and space are once again linked to nature and its rhythms.

It is here, in the deep blue of the ocean that the student fully understands the motto “get your hands dirty, take action!”. In the ocean you are alone, you have to get by with your own strength and knowledge.
