Course offered by Alejandro

3 days
Get to learn to drive a sailboat on your own feeling safe and prepared to do all the maneuvers with this exclusive private course for one person for 3 days, spending the night on board.
The official practices of Yacht Skipper or Yacht Captain can be certified.
If there are no dates, or the ones that are are not going well for you, write to the employer directly to square a date that is going well for you.
There are many people who, after obtaining a nautical qualification, never sail because they do not have the necessary ease to do so with confidence. Sounds good? Well, this course is for you!
We will get to the point, totally practical. We will practice the maneuvers you need, either within the port (berthing and unberthing), such as sailing maneuvers (tacking, gybing, understanding how sails work, etc., such as anchoring manoeuvres, course plotting, etc.
The idea is that you can do everything guided by an instructor who will tell you how to proceed. And as many times as you need until you feel safe.

  • Plan
    For 48 hours (from Friday to Sunday), aboard a First 42s7, you will be able to learn and practice all the maneuvers you need with a private sailing instructor for you. In addition, you will be able to certify the Yacht Skipper or Yacht Captain practices.

    This course does not have a specific program. It is a private course and will be fully adapted to your level and needs. The proposal is to embark on Friday at 6:00 p.m. and disembark on Sunday at 6:00 p.m. During these 48 hours, we can make a personalized agenda according to what you need. There is also the possibility of doing the 48h on other days and times.

    It is the best way to gain experience and confidence so that very soon you can go out alone as a skipper.

    Buenísima experiencia!!! Unas prácticas que no solamente sirven para aprender (las prácticas son totalmente individualizadas y puedes centrarte en los aspectos que desees), también disfrutas del placer de navegar en un ambiente inmejorable.

    Julio del 22. Hicimos un curso de 4h para "refrescar" conceptos básicos de vela. El curso fue muy didáctico, se nota que Alejandro lleva años en esto y es muy buen comunicador. Salimos muy contentos con el curso y con ganas de repetir. Totalmente recomendable.

    Muy grata experiencia a bordo del velero. Alejandro es un capitán pedagógico, ameno y de ligera conversación. Sin duda un enorme acierto en cuanto a la elección, habiendo aprendido y disfrutado de una experiencia única para los que nos llama el mar

    Excelente experiencia! Un 10!! Alejandro, patrón, nos transmitió su amor por el mar y la navegación. Cada tripulante pudimos practicar maniobras y aprender todo lo necesario para planificar una semana de navegación segura y divertida. Sin conocernos previamente se generó un fantástico ambiente!!

    Una experiencia inolvidable. Alejandro, el patrón, es una bellísima persona y un apasionado de la navegación. El curso está muy bien planteado para poder asimilar conceptos que en teoría ya habíamos aprendido, pero que requieren de horas de práctica, y sobre todo experiencia previa antes de abordarlos solos. Alejandro es muy buen profesor, no sólo para transmitir conceptos, sino para generar un buen ambiente con toda la tripulación, uno de los mayores aprendizajes que nos llevamos del curso. Por nuestra parte esperamos que organicen pronto la segunda parte para poder repetir la experiencia.
