CROSSING AND PRACTICES OF HIGH-SEA AND COASTAL NAVIGATION IN A LARGE SAILING BOAT: 5 ISLANDS FROM VALENCIA TO IBIZA, FORMENTERA, CABRERA, MALLORCA AND COLUMBRETES +400 NM
Would you like to gain experience and perfect your sailing technique? Do you want to increase your confidence and skill as a skipper or captain? Are you preparing to practice professionally? Do you need to credit days and miles of navigation?
We propose a program where you will learn to navigate more safely and efficiently on a journey of more than 400 nautical miles, assuming the role of skipper and crew member in different situations and real wind and sea conditions. Whether you are already a skipper, captain or PPER or if you would like to become one, this journey is for you. Climb aboard this great sailboat! A modern Dufourt 525 Grand Large. A sailboat of great length, ideal to learn and enjoy with great safety and comfort.
It includes different workshops and real practices to achieve the following learning objectives:
• Governance and safety on the sailboat (The ship, the skipper and its crew, the steering position, instrumentation, RIPA, POB, EPIRB, abandonment, logbook, positioning on the chart, control and tasks on board...)
• Night navigation (guards, lights, AIS, Radar...)
• Sailing (sails, controls, manoeuvres, courses, trim with crew and solo...)
• High altitude navigation (planning, meteorology, route, management...)
• Coastal navigation (planning, meteorology, route, dangers, marks and buoys, delays, headings, oppositions, markings, anchoring, moorings in port and buoy)
• Basic ropes and much more.

  • Plan
    BOARDING: At 3:30 p.m. in the Royal Navy of Valencia
    DISEMBARKATION: At 5:30 p.m. in the Royal Navy of Valencia

    1ST JOURNEY: VALENCIA-IBIZA (75 NM)

    Welcome and boarding at La Marina Real de Valencia at 3:30 p.m. The sailboat is already perfectly stowed and ready to sail, so, after settling in, we will get to know the sailboat and we will have a first WORKSHOP ON GOVERNMENT, SECURITY AND NIGHT NAVIGATION, delving into aspects related to government (crew, command post, instrumentation... ) and safety (RIPA, POB, EPIRB, abandonment...), especially in night navigation (guards, lights, AIS, Radar...)

    Once these objectives have been overcome, we will have a second HIGH NAVIGATION WORKSHOP, where we will analyze the meteorology, plan the route and organize the watches and tasks on board. And finally we will familiarize ourselves in a practical way with the maneuver of the sailboat, under sail (sails, controls, trim…) and under engine (wind, main and bow propeller, mooring and dead ropes, etc.).

    And now that we are well prepared, around 8:00 p.m., we will set sail for the island of Ibiza (114º) to live the experience of a night cruise. We will make navigation guards in shifts, positioning ourselves on the chart and checking the indicators and security elements every 2 hours.

    2ND JOURNEY: IBIZA-FORMENTERA-CABRERA (110 MN)

    Early in the morning we will leave Conejera about 3 miles to port and going down the west coast of Ibiza (153º) we will pass Es Verdrá on the starboard beam heading for Cape Barbaria in Formentera, which we will leave to port to put the bow to the Punta Roja (85º) looking again for open water towards Cabrera (65º). During this voyage we will have a SAILING WORKSHOP to obtain the best performance of the sailboat during our defeat.

    3RD SINGLE: CABRERA

    After the last boarding and 185mn accumulated, we will arrive at the island of Cabrera at dawn where we will moor to a buoy. We will take a day of rest in this incredible protected environment, which we will be able to get to know by going ashore with the auxiliary to make a small excursion to its highest point where we will enjoy magnificent and well-deserved views.

    4TH JOURNEY: CABRERA-MALLORCA (67 NM)

    First thing in the morning we will set course for Cape Sa Mola (310º) along the southwest coast of Mallorca, leaving Cape Cala Figuera to starboard. From there we will pass between Mallorca and Dragonera to go to our new landing point, the bay or the port of Soller, where, towards sunset, we will anchor or moor depending on our interests. During this voyage we will have a COASTAL NAVIGATION WORKSHOP (planning, meteorology, route, dangers, marks and buoyage, delays, leading lines, oppositions, bearings...), locating ourselves in a practical way on the chart by means of the bearing compass.

    5TH JOURNEY: MALLORCA-COLUMBRETES (96 NM)

    We will have the day off to discover the charming port of Soller with its promenade and its maritime atmosphere, or even take the famous little train to better understand the beauty of this municipality. And at sunset we will head to Columbretes (274º) on a new 96nm board.

    6TH SINGLE: COLUMBRETES

    In the middle of the morning we will arrive at Illa Grossa, the crater of a submerged volcano, where we will moor to a buoy to rest and enjoy this new protected environment. There we can take a guided tour, where they will explain its history, the particularities of its flora and fauna, as well as some other anecdote. We will spend the night under an incredible starry sky, identifying some of the most important stars for sailors.

    7TH JOURNEY: COLUMBRETES-VALENCIA (54 NM)
    Very early we will start the last boarding (240º) towards our destination. We will take advantage of the navigation to learn at least 5 basic knots in a last "ROPE WORKSHOP". And finally, after more than 400mn of navigation, we will moor at sunset in the Royal Marina of Valencia. Here we will say goodbye to what will surely have been a great shared experience.

    *The proposed program could vary depending on the weather or at the proposal of the group.
