In our last General Cycle course we will explore trim techniques to get good cruising performance. We will learn to correctly coordinate the sails with the rudder and how to steer the boat in different directions and situations. And to conclude, we will see the techniques to plan optimal courses based on the weather and the characteristics of our boat.

In our nautical school in the vicinity of Madrid and on a weekend morning you will get the necessary content to skip a sailing cruise.

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.
