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.


Also, 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.


We deliver safe conduct for you to come from anywhere in Spain. And we ask for the antigen test before shipment.


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!

    A unique experience that you have to live. Well organized, fun and with the direction of Maria Jose who knows how to communicate and explain what is necessary during the journey. Fully recommended and necessary after you have your PER to know what life on board is and start practicing in the real world beyond the unreal theory that makes you study at the PER.

    Fully recommended, they have been very enjoyable and complete practices, life on board is very pleasant since it is a large, spacious and fully prepared boat. As for the professionals who make it possible to carry out the internships, say that they have thought of all the details. In my case, Simón was our Skipper, a very attentive person, he has constantly helped us, transmitting confidence, solving a sea of doubts that arose throughout the journey.
    Without a doubt, I will count on María José and her team to carry out future practices and activities.

    Instructors: We have the extensive experience of Simón, a skipper of height who did not overlook any detail without explaining. María José also accompanied us during the journey, complementing the training with numerous tips.

    Boat: 50 foot sailboat in very good condition, 4 spacious cabins with their own bathroom. Very comfortable deck to learn and navigate.

    PY Course: Very positive experience, where we learned to navigate in various weather conditions. Two night sailing and motor cruises where we were able to learn how to orient ourselves in the dark and organize watches and courses.
