Course offered by Luis

6 days
Available in French, English, Spanish
This five-day course is a learning activity for different sailing techniques, which will be carried out in a journey format. As a complete course that it is, its objective is to provide its participants with a global knowledge of the necessary skills to face a journey.
• Maneuvers both motorized and sailed. Mooring, anchoring, buoy taking. Hoisting and lowering of sails, tacking, gybing, arrests, reduction of rag.
• Use of auxiliary boat.
• Adjustment and adjustment of the rig. Theory and practice of advanced mainsail and jib trim. Efficient government of the boat. Coordination of sails and rudder.
• The spinnaker, maneuvers and trim.
• Preparation of the crossings. Logistics. Efficient route planning.
• Night navigation. Navigation in bad weather. Navigation without electronics. Letter, esteem and astronomy.
The program will take place in a coastal journey in its first part starting in the Grao de Castellón and ending in the Alfaques bay, Ebro delta, returning in high-altitude navigation through the Columbretes archipelago, in which we will cover both technical and tourist.
We will take advantage of the abundance of references on the coast so that whoever is qualified can navigate with the help of a chart and bearing compass and forget about electronics. When we lose sight of the coast we can locate ourselves by dead reckoning and even by astronomy, using the sextant who knows the necessary calculations.
On this tour we will visit very remarkable environments such as the mountains and cliffs of Irta, Peñíscola and of course the Ebro delta, one of the most unique places on the Spanish coast, ending in Columbretes, a privileged enclave in the Western Mediterranean.

    - We will head towards the Alfaques bay on the third day, where we will anchor and spend the day to return to spend the night in the nearby port of Vinaroz.
    - In the early morning of the fourth day we will set sail towards the Columbretes Islands where we will arrive around noon, we will visit the Isla Grande and we will have time to enjoy the waters and bottoms of the islands, swimming and snorkeling.

Yacht captain and PPER with extensive experience in crossings and regattas. I enjoy sailing in almost any situation, relaxed on vacation or competitive of regattas. I do not care about the bad weather or sleep little or anywhere but I detest the problems of coexistence on board.

Boat details

Boat that combines comfort with good speed benefits for its length. Like all First, it defends its rating well for its hull design, a good size stick that supports a large sail area compensated by a daggerboard that lowers its draft to 2.35 m, and symmetrical spi. Although it is not comparable to a Swan type racer, its interior comfort makes up for it, offering good habitability. It plays a more than worthy role in regattas and offers good comfort for long stays on vacation.
