Course offered by Luis

5 days
Available in French, English, Spanish
In order to obtain the Recreational Boat Skipper, it is necessary to pass an exam called and scored by the General Directorate of the Merchant Navy, take a theoretical-practical radio operator course of twelve hours and complete a Safety and Navigation internship of sixteen hours.
In this package we offer you everything you need to obtain your PER
- A thirty-hour course to prepare for the DGMM exam, taught in our classrooms in Madrid.
- The radio operator course also taught in Madrid.
- The mandatory Safety and Navigation practices.
Additionally, and to maximize the attributions of your title, you will carry out the Sailing Qualification practices and the Expansion of attributions. These internships consist of a forty-eight-hour journey in a triangular route along the north coast of Castellón and the Columbretes Archipelago and double your title as Recreational Boat Skipper.
- Obtaining the qualification to sail, which will serve you for this title and any higher one that you approve later.
- Enabling you to govern a pleasure boat of up to 24 meters and allowing you to pass from the Peninsula to the Balearic Islands.
We could have chosen a crossing to the Balearic Islands as many others do, but the prevailing winds mean that the outward journey is by motor nine times out of ten, with the return almost always also by motor or in a monotonous route under linear sail with fin winds. There is hardly any time left to learn to sail and conveniently cover the objectives set by the two practices, which are to make a long-term journey and learn to sail.

  • Plan
    The DGMM exam preparation course consists of ten three-hour sessions that will be taught on Tuesdays and Thursdays from the initial date until the ten classes are completed. They will be held in our classrooms in the center of Madrid from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. and their program will be that indicated by the BOE, RD 875 of 2014 of October 10.

    Our Safety and Navigation internships take place in the Mediterranean, using the port of Grao de Castellón as a base. They are carried out on a voyage basis, lasting sixteen hours spread over two days.

    We leave in the morning and we will carry out the exercises provided for by the legislation to return to sleep in port. We offer you the possibility of sleeping on board at no additional cost. We also give the option of making all meals on board at the cost of acquisition.

    The Radio Course, lasting twelve hours including eight hours of practice, takes place in Madrid in our classrooms at the center, in three four-hour sessions.

    For the sailing qualification and the extension of powers we will begin the journey in the port of Grao de Castellón, with a detailed review of the logistics for the forty-eight hours of navigation, including supplies. The weather forecasts will be examined and we will plan a route that allows us to sail for as long as possible within the practice requirements. It is about sailing in the greatest number of directions possible in the time available, not about covering sterile miles by motor. Based on such planning, the teams and task shifts will be organized to effectively meet our objectives. We will sleep and eat on board, with a maximum cost of €9 per day.

    The content of the program to be covered will be

    - Port and anchor motor maneuvers.

    - Sailing maneuvers. Hoist, lower, tack.

    - Navigation in adverse conditions. The reduction of the rag.

    - Adjustment of the sails depending on the course.

    - Efficient steering and coordination with the trim.

    - Sailing approach and anchoring maneuvers. The taking of buoy and the use of the auxiliary boat.

    - Night navigation. Execution of maneuvers at night.

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.
