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!

    Buenísima experiencia!!! Unas prácticas que no solamente sirven para aprender (las prácticas son totalmente individualizadas y puedes centrarte en los aspectos que desees), también disfrutas del placer de navegar en un ambiente inmejorable.

    Julio del 22. Hicimos un curso de 4h para "refrescar" conceptos básicos de vela. El curso fue muy didáctico, se nota que Alejandro lleva años en esto y es muy buen comunicador. Salimos muy contentos con el curso y con ganas de repetir. Totalmente recomendable.

    Muy grata experiencia a bordo del velero. Alejandro es un capitán pedagógico, ameno y de ligera conversación. Sin duda un enorme acierto en cuanto a la elección, habiendo aprendido y disfrutado de una experiencia única para los que nos llama el mar

    Excelente experiencia! Un 10!! Alejandro, patrón, nos transmitió su amor por el mar y la navegación. Cada tripulante pudimos practicar maniobras y aprender todo lo necesario para planificar una semana de navegación segura y divertida. Sin conocernos previamente se generó un fantástico ambiente!!

    Una experiencia inolvidable. Alejandro, el patrón, es una bellísima persona y un apasionado de la navegación. El curso está muy bien planteado para poder asimilar conceptos que en teoría ya habíamos aprendido, pero que requieren de horas de práctica, y sobre todo experiencia previa antes de abordarlos solos. Alejandro es muy buen profesor, no sólo para transmitir conceptos, sino para generar un buen ambiente con toda la tripulación, uno de los mayores aprendizajes que nos llevamos del curso. Por nuestra parte esperamos que organicen pronto la segunda parte para poder repetir la experiencia.
