Have you got a nautical degree but need to develop your sailing knowledge before going sailing with the family?
Have you acquired or are you going to buy a boat, but you obtained the degree a long time ago and you want to refresh your knowledge?
Do you want to know in depth the maneuvers of a sailboat?
Regardless of your motivation, we want to help you navigate safely, taking care of your crew, material and the environment. And all this by yourself, without needing help from the rest of the crew.
With this objective, we offer you some sailing practice reinforcements in a long-keeled Bavaria 38, enabled for 8 crew members. These consist of:
• Security checks prior to departure.
• Learn to correctly trim sails upwind, across and long. Donkey ears. Backstay use.
• Order of operations when making a board. Candle care. jibe.
• Taking reefs.
• Anchoring maneuvers.
• Basic use of instrumentation. Pilot and AIS.
• Emergencies (fire, leak, trailer).
In addition to any other technical questions you may have.
MANEUVERS IN PORT ARE NOT INCLUDED.
We know that PER practices are not always enough to acquire enough poise so that you can go sailing alone. This booster will help you get it.

    Our base port is in Premiá de Mar, near Barcelona. The course will take place over one day, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. It is not a fixed schedule: we can vary it and lengthen it a bit if necessary.

    We will practice all the maneuvers described, we will review knowledge and I will give you practical advice obtained through my experience.

    For a correct use of the training, and to guarantee your learning, the number of seats is limited to 2 crew members. If you want to share the course with more friends, the format would be a day and a half.

Other information
We advise you to bring your drink and a sandwich or other type of food. To make better use of the hours, we will not eat in port, but we will do it while we practice anchoring.

Boat details

Our boat is a 38 foot sailboat, launched in 2004. Ideal for cruising and prepared for regattas. With dimensions of almost 12 m in length and 4m in width, it can comfortably accommodate 8 crew members, distributed in three double cabins and a table in the saloon that can be used as a double bed. Its 55 hp engine and sails allow it to cruise at 7-8 knots effortlessly.

It is like a floating bungalow that we take care of with great care. It is equipped with a kitchen, refrigerator, television and a sink with shower. Another additional shower is installed on the deck.

Outside we have mats. Its awning, bimini, side protectors and anti-spray hood allow us to protect ourselves from both the sun and bad weather. For crossings with long stays in port we can also transport a portable air conditioning unit.

A zodiac with a 2 HP motor and two paddle-surf boards provide us with mobility and fun from the anchoring area. There is also material for snorkeling.

The boat, mechanically revised every year and constantly tested in regattas, is equipped for high altitude navigation with radar, AIS, plotter, life raft and all the necessary safety equipment, according to the new DGMM requirements.

    Experiencia inmejorable, era justo lo que necesitaba. Tras obtener mi titulación todavía no tenía confianza para alquilar un velero con la familia; Juli ha sido un instructor excepcional, se hace muchísima práctica de maniobra en un velero super cuidado de características muy parecidas al que quiero alquilar.

    Excelente día de formación. En esto de la vela hay que sumar muchas horas antes de atreverse a salir solo. Con Juli además aprendí muchas nuevas cosas y practicamos durante todo el día. Como le decía a Juli, después de esta jornada veo que debo ir a un gimnasio a reforzar musculatura. Hoy he dormido de un tirón...
