Course offered by Alejandro

7 days
We propose that you get on board our sailboat for 7 days, to have a true experience of what it is to be a skipper. The main objective of this activity is for you to gain experience as a skipper so that you can feel safe when going out with friends and family in your own boat or renting it.
The course is aimed at those people who have a nautical qualification or are about to obtain it, but who still feel that they do not have the necessary experience to go out as skippers in command of a boat.
Our plan will be to leave Barcelona and sail to Menorca, where the idea is to go around the island, making a real enjoyable navigation, spending the nights in coves or port, while we put into practice and review all the concepts that are emerging. .
In Menorca you will be able to discover and enjoy the warm and crystalline waters of the Mediterranean at the same time that you discover one of the best sailing destinations in all of Europe, the island offers good shelter from the different winds, and being relatively small, it allows you to easily navigate from north to south to look for calm waters where to spend the night.
We are sure that after this fabulous experience you will become a much safer skipper capable of steering a boat, do not hesitate to come.
We are waiting for you on board!

    Excellent experience! A 10!! Alejandro, skipper, transmitted to us his love for the sea and navigation. Each crew member was able to practice maneuvers and learn everything necessary to plan a week of safe and fun navigation. Without knowing each other beforehand, a fantastic atmosphere was created!

    An unforgettable experience. Alejandro, the skipper, is a beautiful person and passionate about sailing. The course is very well planned to be able to assimilate concepts that in theory we had already learned, but that require hours of practice, and above all previous experience before tackling them alone. Alejandro is a very good teacher, not only to transmit concepts, but to create a good atmosphere with the entire crew, one of the greatest lessons we learn from the course. For our part, we hope that the second part will be organized soon so that we can repeat the experience.
