This is a course aimed at those who, having a certain experience as navigators at sea, wish to acquire all the necessary knowledge to be completely autonomous as skippers on a sailing cruise.

Our subject will extend from the planning of the route to the maneuvers of departure and docking, anchoring and disembarkation, and the handling of the complete rig including the spinaker. This wing will occupy us an important part, from its handling to the interaction with the rest of the wing.

Each participant will plan supplies and necessary reviews before leaving.
All of them will plan the route based on the weather and the crew.
We will train entry and exit mooring maneuvers, and we will practice anchoring with anchor and buoy followed by disembarkation
In navigation and in the convenient courses we will use the spinaker in combination with the rest of the rig.
In three full days of sailing, we will live on board, sleeping and eating on the boat.

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.

    The course was very good. We had a bit of bad luck with the wind. there was a lot and very gusty. We had to sail with 2 curls due to the wind conditions and we were unable to put the trim concepts into practice due to the weather conditions. In any case highly recommended.
