This weekend course will help us to reinforce different points.


Workshop on maneuvering practices with a sailboat necessary for safety at sea and security in ports when docking the boat


To navigate we rely on various electronic equipment and computer applications, as well as to communicate we have to know how to communicate and in which station to be served.


In addition, if you plan to make a journey of several days, either along the coast or across the Balearic Islands or sailing somewhere further afield. The planning and organization of both the trip and everything necessary to take on a journey is very important, remember! At sea there are no stores where you can buy vital spare parts for the boat or in case someone suffers an accident. Prevention is the success that everything goes as expected.


Boats:


Beneteau Oceanis: 15 meters in length. 4 cabins, 4 bathrooms, great room and kitchen.
Sorrento Vagabundo: 17 meters in length, 4 double cabins, 3 bathrooms, large living room and kitchen. With Yanky, trinqueta and major.


We are waiting for you on board!

    Extraordinary experience, of which they are not forgotten. The atmosphere of the group helped a lot. We fit in very well with each other and with Maria José, who showed a deep knowledge of the sea and transmitted her enormous love to us. I encourage other people to do this activity, they will not be disappointed.
