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 on 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 of everything going as expected.

  • Una semana en velero por Ibiza y Formentera desde Valencia

    A memorable, fun and risky experience, very complete: we have been very lucky with the weather and we have been able to sail with little wind and medium-high wind; at night, calm; As soon as you return to Denia and have the boat moored in port, there was a storm time! It has been amazing! We have visited the city of Ibiza and the island of Formentera; but, above all, sailing along the coast from cove to cove, anchoring, bathing from the boat, entering the port on a sailboat, ... with sun, clear sky, breeze, ... unforgettable.
    Coexistence, key point: a 7-day dive of 9 people on a boat in which we have had moments of tension, but also very good times in a group that we will undoubtedly always remember each and everyone!
    Regarding the skipper, the ship was not taken by María José, but another skipper; I think this should be explained before booking; On the other hand, we set sail two boats at the same time from Denia, organized by María José, and we have done the whole trip together, in parallel. The two crews and the two skippers have connected very well! In addition, we have helped each other, passing ice when it was finished on a boat, lending us the SUP board or helping with a breakdown on the boat. We have all made an effort to make the trip to everyone's taste, following individual proposals and making group agreements. The bosses, always ready to make the trip to everyone's liking. And also, they have given us their enthusiasm for sailing and sailing and have passed on their knowledge and nautical experiences.
