Adventure offered by Alejandro

11 days
The IMOCA OPEN 60 Escola de la FBCN will be in charge, once again, of the work of the accompanying boat of the SOLO MED regatta, guaranteeing the safety of the fleet throughout the entire route. The IMOCA School has a satellite communication system on board for emergencies.
Boats like the IMOCA OPEN 60 are the ones that compete in ocean regattas like the Vendee Globe, they are pure competition boats. Austere inside, with the minimum, to run to the maximum.
The Solo Med is a solo competition for Mini 6.5 Class boats, consisting of two stages: the first of 200NM and the second of 500NM.
This is the second edition of this regatta.
On board the IMOCA we will take care of the follow-up part of the regatta, accompanying the minis on their journey. We will be at the organization's disposal to do any work entrusted to us, as well as transmit the weather conditions in real time or communicate with the skippers of the minis.
We make 3 seats available so that you can live this experience on board.

Boat details

The F2 of the SCETA Group was built in 1990, one of the first IMOCA Open 60. It is a boat with a great list of winners behind it, and it is currently owned by the Barcelona Capital Nautica Foundation.

The IMOCA 60 is an “open class”. In other words, the designers are free to conceive the boats, but always within certain limits, maximum measurements, which in the case of the IMOCA 60 are: 60 feet (18.29 meters) in length, 4.5 meters in draft and 29 meters high mast above sea level. When designing their boats, designers must also meet a series of safety requirements that can be classified into two large groups:
• Structural design standards. They are the ones that make it necessary to have watertight compartments, exit hatches, etc.
stability requirements. They are a series of standards and tests that must be applied to each boat to guarantee its stability and its ability to self-righte itself (re-right itself) in the event of capsizing.

The IMOCA Open 60 must meet, among others, the following requirements:

Monohull boat with a maximum length of 60 feet and a maximum total length of 66 feet.
maximum draft 4.50 meters;
it must have five watertight compartments;
it must have a maximum of five appendages (usually tilting keel, rudders and asymmetric daggerboards) are authorized;
air draft of 29 meters maximum.

    Buenísima experiencia!!! Unas prácticas que no solamente sirven para aprender (las prácticas son totalmente individualizadas y puedes centrarte en los aspectos que desees), también disfrutas del placer de navegar en un ambiente inmejorable.

    Julio del 22. Hicimos un curso de 4h para "refrescar" conceptos básicos de vela. El curso fue muy didáctico, se nota que Alejandro lleva años en esto y es muy buen comunicador. Salimos muy contentos con el curso y con ganas de repetir. Totalmente recomendable.

    Excelente experiencia! Un 10!! Alejandro, patrón, nos transmitió su amor por el mar y la navegación. Cada tripulante pudimos practicar maniobras y aprender todo lo necesario para planificar una semana de navegación segura y divertida. Sin conocernos previamente se generó un fantástico ambiente!!

    Una experiencia inolvidable. Alejandro, el patrón, es una bellísima persona y un apasionado de la navegación. El curso está muy bien planteado para poder asimilar conceptos que en teoría ya habíamos aprendido, pero que requieren de horas de práctica, y sobre todo experiencia previa antes de abordarlos solos. Alejandro es muy buen profesor, no sólo para transmitir conceptos, sino para generar un buen ambiente con toda la tripulación, uno de los mayores aprendizajes que nos llevamos del curso. Por nuestra parte esperamos que organicen pronto la segunda parte para poder repetir la experiencia.
