Exit focused on knowing the safety elements that we have on the boat, radio beacon, VHF, MOB (gps) and learning to perform man overboard maneuvers.
We will sail from Port Olímpic aboard one of our sailboats.
This full day course is divided into two parts.
In the first part, we will do man overboard practices and we will explain how all the safety elements work:
bilge pumps
Design categories of a boat
layer anchor
medical kit
First aid at sea
Use of the lifeline
In the second part, an emergency at sea will be simulated. A life raft will be inflated, donned survival suits, crew will abandon the sailboat, activate an EPIRB (drill), drift 1 hour and be rescued by "another" sailboat:
Simulation of an emergency case
Preparation of a ditch kit
Launch of the life raft
abandon ship on the raft
nozzle cut
Use of raft safety and survival material
organization on the raft
Simulated rescue from the life raft

PPER and instructor, I am a great fan of cruising and dinghy sailing. I own a nautical school in Barcelona. We carry out all the Spanish recreational titles, STCW professional training, RYA English courses and many adventures and sailing trips.

    Communication with Luis was perfect once we got in touch via his nautical center. Communication via sailwiz is impossible.
    Regarding the content of the LdN course, in my opinion it is terribly deficient. They don't even teach you how to throw and pick up an anchor.

    Hello Javier, thank you very much for your evaluation. Comment that we correctly comply with the requirements of the Merchant Marine curriculum for the formation of the Navigation License. It is a very compressed course and I agree with you that it cannot cover all aspects of navigation.

    Everything very easy and fast, he answered my questions without problems. I did not know Adrià personally but the members of the school who gave the course were all very friendly. Thank you

    Absolutely Fantastic!!! Nora was excellent at teaching in 2 seperate languages, and her experience as a Captain was amazing. We would recommend sailing with Nora any day, and we would go again. Thank you for a great sailing experience!!!!!!

    We have had a good time and it has been a constructive activity, experience is gained. Some proposals are not even considered as possible options in reality. If the description of the offer were adjusted a little to what is really done, we would sign up anyway.

    Very happy and satisfied with the experience. I have acquired training and a few hours of navigation for the per and enjoyed with great companions. The skipper, Professor Aketxa, completely overturned and attentive to the students, has been attentive to us and able to overcome problems or breakdowns on the boat.
