The Sailing Practices are valid for all the degrees: PNB (Basic Navigation Pattern), PER (Recreation Boat Pattern), Yacht Pattern and Captain. They are optional but if you like the world of sailing and also want to travel and rent boats in other destinations, we recommend you do them; 95% of the boats available to rent are sailing.
You should also know that, being an optional practice, you can enable your degree at the time you want, that is, you only have to practice sailing (16h) and renew your current title or card (an easy procedure that only requires: payment of fees + delivery of nautical card application). you know! Whenever you want you can enable your nautical title to take motor boats and sailing to the length that allows your degree.
