Course offered by Luis

Available in French, English, Spanish
This first course of our cycle, developed in the San Juan Reservoir (Madrid), is aimed at those who wish to start in the world of cruising sailing and have no previous experience. Your goal is to convert an uninitiated into a valid crew member in the course of a day.
We will start the session with a presentation of the safety fundamentals on board to continue with a brief theoretical presentation referring mainly to the parts of the boat and their use.
Later we will go to the water where we will spend the rest of the day in a fun navigation where we will see the essential maneuvers on board. The instructor will participate to the extent that it is necessary for safety, giving instructions and leaving the execution in the hands of the students who will rotate to occupy all the positions on board.

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.

  • What happens in case this activity is booked and it rains a lot? and if there is no wind?
    • Like any outdoor activity we depend on the weather, but logically we cannot take responsibility for it. It is only automatically suspended if the conditions may pose a danger, in other cases we leave. The rain is bearable well equipped and you have to learn to navigate with little wind.
