This weekend is focused on 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 sail trim and 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.


It will be a theoretical-practical training.


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.


We are waiting for you on board!

Additional information
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 be worth about 30 or 40 euros.

Completely practical course and private learning, you will have time to practice all individually. Maximum 8 people per boat.
Sheets can be hired with a supplement.
If you wish, you can come on Friday evening and spend the night on the boat, for a small supplement of € 25 per person.
