- In a weekend, in the San Juan Reservoir, a few kilometers from Madrid, you will be able to acquire knowledge that will be very useful in your pleasure sailing, since we will visit all the areas of sailing and we will practice the necessary movements and settings. to take a sailboat.
- Our instructors do not touch anything except in an emergency, they will rotate the crew through all the positions they occupy on board.
- We start the session at 1000 in the morning with a brief presentation of the fundamentals of sailing to then go out into the water where what we have learned will be put into practice.
- At half a day we will take a break to eat and discuss the afternoon session, which will be based on the maneuvers to be carried out on board, from tacking to stops, going through the reduction of rag.
- During the second day we will learn the concepts of optimization of the boat, how the sails are related to the government, and the settings to carry a coordinated course with trim.
- And all this carrying the rod and the sails from the first day.

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

Day cruise based on the San Juan Reservoir. It is an ideal boat for teaching due to its capacity and nobility of reactions, and for regattas in protected waters since its design, derived from the j80, makes it a fast and ventolinero boat. It is equipped with a spinaker maneuver, which gives it a good disposition for regattas.

    A Professional Pattern, Monitor, with full knowledge and teaching capacity. Totally recommended as a nautical professional, teacher and person.
    The route could not be completed until Columbretes due to the Meteo and with this, he even allowed himself to see his high level of good sense.
