Do you have the navigation title?
Do you want to learn to manage everything you need to make a journey?
Would you like to rent a sailboat with friends and / or family, being the skipper of the boat?


Join this weeklong course with other people like you. It consists of 7 consecutive days of navigation without returning home with a maximum of 8 students on board, learning and demonstrating navigation knowledge during a continuous evaluation with a RYA instructor, who will decide at the end of the course if you are eligible or not to obtain the qualification.


During the course you will assume the command of the skipper and the responsibility of the sailboat in small passages. The role of the instructor in this course is based on providing advice and support throughout the navigation. The key element is feeling the responsibility of being a skipper and being able to make the right decisions to make a safe journey. Every day you will see theory - practice of the points that will be covered.


IMPORTANT: All crew members must take an antigen test carried out by a medical center where they draw your blood and give you the results. The test must be done 2 days before departure.


It is a much cheaper test than a PCR can cost from 30 or 40 euros.


We deliver safe conduct for you to come from anywhere in Spain. And we ask for the antigen test before shipment.


Boats:


Beneteau Oceanis: 15 meters in length. 4 cabins, 4 bathrooms, great room and kitchen.
Sorrento Vagabundo: 17 meters in length, 4 double cabins, 3 bathrooms, large living room and kitchen. With Yanky, trinqueta and major.

    A unique experience that you have to live. Well organized, fun and with the direction of Maria Jose who knows how to communicate and explain what is necessary during the journey. Fully recommended and necessary after you have your PER to know what life on board is and start practicing in the real world beyond the unreal theory that makes you study at the PER.

    Fully recommended, they have been very enjoyable and complete practices, life on board is very pleasant since it is a large, spacious and fully prepared boat. As for the professionals who make it possible to carry out the internships, say that they have thought of all the details. In my case, Simón was our Skipper, a very attentive person, he has constantly helped us, transmitting confidence, solving a sea of doubts that arose throughout the journey.
    Without a doubt, I will count on María José and her team to carry out future practices and activities.
