The PER on-board course is the ideal way to prepare the official Recreational Boat Skipper exam. For 7 days, you will attend face-to-face classes while sailing and overnight on board.

It is a different experience in which, in addition to the theoretical classes, you will be able to carry out all the PER navigation practices: Motor (16 hours), Extension (24 hours) and Sailing Enabling (16 hours). You will also have access to a last generation online platform.

Every day we will visit an island, while we are sailing!

After completing the course, if you pass the corresponding theoretical exam, you can govern sailing and motor boats up to 24 meters in length at a distance of 12 miles from the coast and make the journey between Peninsula and Balearic Islands.

Remember that, in addition to passing the exam and the corresponding practices, to obtain the PER you need to be over 18 years old at the time of taking the exam and submit a psychotechnical certificate when requesting the issuance of the degree.

Plan
DAY 1 - Departure from Gran Canaria
We will know all the points of the boat before leaving, including: prevention in the boat and First Aid, doubts about the course and information about the route to follow. We will consult the first meteorological parts for the crossing, an action that we will repeat every day. When sailing we will have our first contact with the nautical charts.

DAY 2 - Trip to Fuerteventura
We will work with the sails and handle the ship.

Day 3 - Trip to Lanzarote
We will be more familiar with the ship. If we arrive in time, we can bathe in a cove.

Day 4 - Route through the northern part of the Islands
We will tour some of the most charming islands. This day we can stop in port to learn more about the islands, if the crew wishes.

Day 5 - Travel to Lanzarote through the northern area
Here we will have to be true sailors: we will travel at night on one of the most beautiful crossings making guards during the crossing.

Day 6 - South of Gran Canaria
A long journey, but it will not be a problem since in these days we will be able to call everything by its nautical name and we will be prepared to face the theoretical exam

Day 7 - Coastal navigation through Gran Canaria
With the knowledge assumed after almost a week on board, we will depart towards the port, costing the north of the island and seeing the Teide volcano at all times. Once we arrive at the port we will raise the final doubts that have remained in the inkwell and we will say goodbye.

If for some reason the last day you do not have a return trip by plane, you can stay to sleep on the ship at no cost.

These crossings may vary depending on the weather, always looking for the best winds.
