Course offered by Luis

Available in French, English, Spanish
This course is the continuation of our Coastal Navigation Course. With the knowledge already acquired of the boat's settings and in what situation to apply them, we will embark on a high altitude navigation, heading to the Columbretes Islands, whenever the weather allows us.
The participant will intervene in the planning of the journey and in the logistics, learning the necessary knowledge to make decisions in this regard.
During the crossing, the principles of trim and steering of the boat will be applied exhaustively, including the spinnaker if the wind gives us the opportunity, so good knowledge in the handling of the sails and the wheel is required.

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.

    Día magnífico en el pantano. Queco, el intructor, estuvo perfecto; tanto en sus explicaciones teóricas como sus intrucciones ya en el barco. Recomendado 100%.
