Adventure offered by Luis

5 hours
Available in French, English, Spanish
This course taught at the San Juan Reservoir is especially indicated for those who, having a previous experience in cruising sailing, wish to deepen their knowledge. The participant will leave this day endowed with solid knowledge to be a competent crew member on board a sailing cruise.
We will start the day with a theoretical exposition on the distribution of functions and fundamental maneuvers. After a couple of theoretical notions, we will go into the water to explain the different balances on board and how to maintain them, we will review the controls of the sails and how they influence their performance, and we will sail to practice their influence on the boat.
Next, we will introduce the maneuvers related to stopping the boat and reducing rags in high wind environments.

Meet Luis, the skipper
81 reviews At Sailwiz since 2018
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.

    Excelente, muy amena y didáctico, el barco estupendo para la actividad. En resumen (no permite poner muchas palabras), solo puedo señalar cosas positivas, sin dudas la recomiendo y seguro participaré en otras actividades para mejorar mi preparación en navegación a vela. Saludos y enhorabuena a Queco y Luis

    Tras una explicación más detallada (quizas el tiempo que estuvimos en el aula podría reducirse y parte del "temario" verlo directamente en el barco) de la documentación que nos habían enviado un par de días antes por email (así dio tiempo a leerlo y que nos sonase todo), fuimos al barco a practicar lo que habíamos visto de manera teórica.
    Buen ambiente generado por el instructor (Queco), quien explicaba de manera sencilla y amena cada maniobra a realizar, y su porque. Muy bien también con el resto de participantes.
    Una pena que hizo poco viento y nos quedamos con ganas de más.
    Una buena experiencia que sin duda repetiré!

    Nivel 2 de vela. Imprescincible haber hecho el anterior antes, pues aunque yo tenía la habilitación a vela hecha, me vino muy bien para asentar conceptos y poder seguir aprendiendo en este curso.
    Muy didáctico. Ahora, por el tercer curso.
