The programme of our courses is based on the Polish Yachting Association Training Scheme. Students finishing our course are well prepared for both practical and theoretical Inland or Coastal Skipper examinations. The examinations are organised at the end of every course under the authority of Polish Yachting Association and take place at least once a week. The programme includes about 15 hours of lectures and tutorials and 30 hours of sailing practice. The practical and theoretical training is organised from the 1st April to 30th November.

[] OUR INSTRUCTORS

Pawel Gostkowski

Year '76. Graduate of the Gdynia Maritime University, the competitor of the Maritime Regatta Training Centre in Polish Yacht Club. In years ‘95 – ‘97 gold, silver and bronze medalist of the Polish Marine Sailing Championships. Numerous races in international regattas in ILC - 25 class and in the IMS formula, member of the Polish national team in the Netherlands Championships and the World Championships.

In the years 2000 - 2005 he was realizing dozens of orders to carry out yachts, including the French shipyard ‘Sunreef’ - 60 feet-long manufacturer of luxury catamarans. He has been sailing on the Baltic Sea, the Mediterranean Sea and South Atlantic Ocean.

Currently, he has been operating a few trips a year, only in his own business and for pleasure. His favorite basin is an Archipelago of Aland and Saaristo. Since 2000 the owner of the Junga Sailing School. The work in school is his hobby and spends there the spare time.

Michal Truchanowicz

Year '90. He studies at the Faculty of Navigation on the Gdynia Maritime University. He started the adventure with sailing in the Optimist Class in Navy Yacht Club. He has spotted Junga Sailing School at the fair when he was 13 years old. After several years of carefree fun in this school he joined our team of instructors.

Each year, he runs number of cruises on the Adriatic Sea, the Balearic Islands and South Atlantic waters.Spain, Morocco. In our center in Gdynia he teaches navigation, maritime pilotage, leads port maneuvers on the motor and sails, but also practical SRC (Short Range Certificate) course.

Sailing omnibus. He is trained in ARPA, ECDIS, STCW, GMDSS, GOC, advanced systems, Navtex and AIS. The knowledge gained at the University is directly applied on our trainings and offshore voyages. It is a very liked instructor.

As a future officer of the merchant fleet he spent a few months on board the ‘Dar Mlodziezy’ (Gift of Youth). For further practice in navigation on the bridge he worked for ‘Polferries’ ferry lines. ‘Scandinavia’ and ‘Baltivia’ ferries on the route Gdańsk - Nynashamn.

In Junga, he officiates managerial functions, manages a team of instructors. He represents a new generation, what means that Junga will not turn quickly into a nautical museum;)

JAREK KACZOROWSKI

Year ’66. Graduate of the University of Gdansk. His sailing career began brilliantly at the age of 12 with the title of Polish Champion in the Optimist class. In subsequent years he was multiple gold medallist on Marine Polish Championships, medallist in the Tornado World Championship and twice in Micro class.

He is well-known for large national projects, including the races around the world on catamaran Warta Polpharma. He has also won the Mackinac Race and the prestigious Sydney Hobart Race.

However, the greatest recognition in the sailing environment brought him the participation in the TRANSAT 650 project; alone across the Atlantic, "one boat, one ocean, one man".

Jarek sailed in the lead in the one of the most prestigious and extreme sailing events in the world. The idea of ??the transatlantic race is grappling with the power of the ocean on the yacht 6.5 meters long. Additionally, the rules of the race prohibit any contact with the land and the use of electronic navigation maps. What is more, to qualify, the competitors need to take part in the number of qualification races and sail alone two thousand miles! Participation in this project gave him a place in the world leaders of professional racing sailors.

Jarek is also a professional skipper of 90 and 80 feet-long maxi yachts class, which are well-known from commercials of maxi Bols and maxi Sport boat :)

His attachment to Junga Sailing School is very strong. He teaches our participants sailing, maritime navigation and pilotage. Moreover, his son Milosz got Inland Skipper Certificate here and the other son Cieszek went with us for his first seagoing voyage to Alands.

Privately, he is known as modest person with a healthy lack of swank, which accompanies the typical racing sailors :) He is the author of several articles about sailing in the ‘Gazeta Wyborcza’, ‘Rejs’ and ‘Żagle’. His fascinating stories about sailing adventures you can find on the website: jaro.sails.pl. However, a substantial value of his knowledge you can assess by yourself on our lectures in the Junga Sailing School ;)
