Course offered by Iván

2 days
Available in Spanish, French, English, Portuguese
Gain confidence in sailing with this two-day intensive course that we will take on a sailing boat from Baiona.
This course is especially aimed at you if you are a sailor without previous practical experience or have training gaps in this regard due to a predominantly theoretical training (PNB, PER, PY...).
We will take the course on one of the boats in our fleet: Grand Soleil 43 / Hanse 315 / Hanse 415 / Bavaria 34 Cruiser / Lagoon 42.
Maximum 4 crew members per course. It can be combined with the skipper improvement course that we run in parallel, since every skipper needs a crew and vice versa. In this way, in the course we will not only practice navigation techniques but also crew management and internal communication.

    In this case our boss was Daniel, not Iván. The experience was very good, the boats used were in very good condition and the person in charge of giving us the training showed a lot of experience and skills to transmit confidence and explain the maneuvers and operation of the equipment.

    First of all say that this trip is for people who are a little initiated in the art of navigation. I applied without experience, but despite everything I was accepted and welcomed into the group without any problem. In the end I enjoyed it and above all I learned a lot about coastal navigation, sails and the study of the wind. Thank you

    We did the internships with Dani, who has taught me a lot, the Catamaran was new and super careful, only 4 students went, also the luck of our colleagues who seemed to have known each other forever, a cabin for each one with what we have Wonderful state, the school of 10, I recommend it 1000x1000

    The experience has been totally positive at all levels. It has been an excellent weekend, Iván has taught us the most important keys for safe navigation, berthing techniques, anchoring, etc., as well as guiding you in planning trips and the best destinations to navigate. I recommend it 100%.

    It wasn't really Mar who taught the course but rather Anna. Very nice person with a lot of experience in navigation. The course is very good since it is different from others, focusing on maneuvers in port, preparation of the boat before leaving, maneuvers in water, trimming the sails,...
