This course, developed in the San Juan Reservoir (Madrid), is aimed at those who want to start in the world of cruise sailing and have no previous experience. Your goal is to convert an uninitiated into a valid crew member over the course of a day.
We will start the session with an exposition of the fundamentals of safety on board to continue with a brief theoretical exposition referring mainly to the parts of the vessel 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 necessary for safety, giving the 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.

    Día magnífico en el pantano. Queco, el intructor, estuvo perfecto; tanto en sus explicaciones teóricas como sus intrucciones ya en el barco. Recomendado 100%.
