The objective of these days is to adapt the knowledge of inland water navigation, who has done the previous days, or see them again if they have not done.
Depending on the weather and the capabilities of the crew, we will plan the route, if possible, to the Columbretes Islands to spend the night there, and their alternatives in case of unforeseen events.
All the preparations and security measures to be followed will be reviewed to start navigation.
En route will review all the concepts of sailing, maneuvers, adjustments in sails and rigging and controls of the ship to execute everything. You will also see different defeats to follow and advantages and disadvantages, reviewing the government with wave.

On Friday when we arrive we will see the weather forecast and decide on the route. We will leave Castellón on Saturday morning after checking the weather again. We will do active sailing sailing covering everything we have to go over until Columbretes, we will anchor in Ila Grossa and whoever wants to visit the island. The rest of the time, swim and snorkel in its waters, a wonderful natural reserve. On Sunday morning we will sail again.

The boat
Boat that combines comfort with good speed benefits for its length. Like all First, it defends its rating well for its hull design, a good size stick that supports a large sail area compensated by a daggerboard that lowers its draft to 2.35 m, and symmetrical spi. Although it is not comparable to a Swan type racer, its interior comfort makes up for it, offering good habitability. It plays a more than worthy role in regattas and offers good comfort for long stays on vacation.

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.

    Highly recommended experience. Queco was a very good teacher, pedagogue and very patient as well as being very sympathetic.

    After a more detailed explanation (perhaps the time we were in the classroom could be reduced and part of the "agenda" to see it directly on the boat) of the documentation that had been sent to us a couple of days before by email (this gave us time to read it and that everything sounded to us), we went to the boat to practice what we had seen theoretically.

    Good atmosphere generated by the instructor (Queco), who explained each maneuver to be carried out in a simple and enjoyable way, and why. Very well also with the rest of the participants.

    A pity that there was little wind and we were wanting more.

    A good experience that I will certainly repeat!
