Course offered by Luis

5 hours
Available in French, English, Spanish
- Since our beginnings in learning to sail, the fact that for each direction with respect to the wind there is an optimal position of the sails has been a constant.
- In our fourth and last course of the General Cycle we will explore the adjustment techniques to obtain a good cruise performance.
- We will learn to correctly coordinate the sails with the rudder and how to steer the boat in different directions and situations.
- At the beginning, at 1000h, we will define the principles of setting the sails and how to use the different controls to achieve the desired results in the sails.
- We will go out into the water where we will put into practice what we have learned and we will see how we coordinate the rod with the adjustments made.
- From there we will focus on handling the rudder in different circumstances and weather situations.
- At 3:00 p.m. we will pick up the boat and return to the base

Yacht captain and PPER with extensive experience in crossings and regattas. I enjoy sailing in almost any situation, relaxed on vacation or competitive of regattas. I do not care about the bad weather or sleep little or anywhere but I detest the problems of coexistence on board.

Boat details

Day cruise based on the San Juan Reservoir. It is an ideal boat for teaching due to its capacity and nobility of reactions, and for regattas in protected waters since its design, derived from the j80, makes it a fast and ventolinero boat. It is equipped with a spinaker maneuver, which gives it a good disposition for regattas.

    Great learning in the trim course with Queco. In addition, the wind accompanied the swamp that day. Intensive and didactic course both in theory and in practice!

    The activity was canceled and I was not notified. Later, you contacted me to apologize for what happened and offer me to carry out the activity the next day at a special price. On the part of Sailwiz they gave me good support to manage the incident. In the next few days I hope that the amount of the canceled course will be refunded.

    The course was very good. We had a bit of bad luck with the wind. there was a lot and very gusty. We had to sail with 2 curls due to the wind conditions and we were unable to put the trim concepts into practice due to the weather conditions. In any case highly recommended.
