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
lifebuoy
Design categories of a boat
Lifejacket
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

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.

    Very enriching experience. Agustín, the skipper at all times, very attentive and very pedagogical, made the entire crew collaborate in the operations on the boat. Highly recommended.

    Excellent way to start or perfect maneuvers in port.
    The teacher left us our own initiative and he was correcting us during the exercise.
    Very clear instructions and very useful tricks.

    Las prácticas de fondeo fueron muy amenas e interesantes! El patrón, Sebastián, tenía mucha experiencia de navegación y la sabía transmitir muy bien. Recomiendo la Escuela, voy a repetir seguro!

    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.
