Course offered by Enrique

Available in English
Two-day advanced sailing course in Benalmádena.
The main objective is to acquire the skill as a skipper to steer a sailboat with speed and safety. For which we are going to improve rudder management, sail trim and the ability to adapt to different wind and sea conditions.
- Trim mast and standing rigging
We will learn the adjustments of the standing rigging, both in mooring and in navigation, adapting the boat to weather conditions and navigation objectives.
- Genoa trim.
We will learn the main concepts about genoa trimming. Its parts and its shape. Also the adjustment or trim actions. Action of sheets, sheet cars, halyards, etc.
- Mainsail trimming.
We will learn and practice the main trim points of the mainsail such as the sheet, the sheet car, the halyard, the counter, the outrigger and the backstay.
- Techniques to adapt to different wind and sea conditions
We will also practice techniques and maneuvers to coordinate the action of the sails, the rudder and the boat as a whole. Depending on the weather conditions that we find in the course we will practice: Navigation with little wind, with gusty wind, with strong wind, navigation with waves, etc.
Always taking into account aspects such as: the interaction between the candles. The handling of weights on board, the passage of waves, and taking advantage of gusts
In order not to extend ourselves excessively and to be able to focus in a practical way, we will always talk about the trim of a type of sailboat. Being a modern sailboat standard, we will always work on a fractional-rigged sloop with setback spreaders.
Brief presentations, practice in navigation with data collection, evaluation of the same and implementation of improvement actions.

I am passionate about the Sea and Navigation. I have been sailing since I was a child and I have been a sailor, an activity that I still practice when work and family allow me.

Boat details

Imagine a sailboat where the interior habitability will make you feel comfortable throughout the day, because the Bavaria 46 is characterized by its spaciousness, where you can fully coexist during crossings of several days comfortably.

To that add the pleasure of sailing in a fast boat, with a very noble handling and capable of transmitting the best sensations when sailing.

With all this, add the advantage of being at sea, being able to enjoy the sun on your deck and a sunset while we prepare dinner in your large bathtub at the stern.

And as icing on the cake, the company and the feeling of being free while sailing.

    Nuestro patrón fué Andrés. Gran navegante y gran persona. La travesía muy recomendable, aún que faltó viento, pero eso es impredecible. Aún así, lo pasamos muy bien. Muy interesante la iniciación al sextante y la visita a la bodega con cata estuvo genial
