This practical workshop is aimed at those people who are studying to obtain the PER or for those who are already skippers or captains and / or crew members who want to learn and improve anchoring maneuvers.

Anchoring is a very important maneuver to avoid colliding on Borneo or the boat from grabbing you, as well as avoiding damage to the boat when carrying out the maneuver.

Trim is essential in sailing. Learning to trim sails will allow you to optimize the flow of the wind to increase the speed of your sailboat during navigation. It is not necessary to have a nautical degree.

Sorrento Vagabundo: 17 meters in length, 4 double cabins, 3 bathrooms, large living room and kitchen. With Yanky, trinqueta and greater.
