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.

The boat
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.

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.

    Very good experience, I had not had previous contact with the sail and I have touched all the positions of the boat, including the rudder. The skipper takes a real interest in your learning, rotates all the crew, allowing you to experience all the functions. Very interesting for a first contact with sailing.

    Everything has been easy with Luis, he has always tried to guarantee that we had the right wind to navigate, and very oriented to the student being the one who takes the boat. Excellent experience
