LIVING AND LIVING ON BOARD OF A SAILBOAT
At the beginning you are a bit on the lookout, you meet a number of people who do not know anything, it is normal, but you will see that after the presentations and with the first activity in common, the purchase of food and drink, with Some of you already seem to be lifelong friends and once on board again, with the first hours of navigation, dinner and the guard, when you get to the Islands we are all a great family.
During our stay in the sailboat we will have to help at specific moments to the skipper in some maneuvers, both on the way out and on the return during the night crossing we will distribute the guard, any crew member can do it without difficulty.
There are always those who are more involved and interested in navigation, it is a good time to learn to navigate and at some point you can take the helm under the supervision of the skipper.
Remember that we will be a team, we will make meals, we will put and collect the table, we will maintain the common areas of the sailboat ordered and stowed, to avoid trips, breakages and falls of objects to the sea, we do not usually distribute tasks unless the crew so indicates, In a natural way everyone is involved.
Very important aspects:
Savings in fresh water consumption. The water tanks are limited and if we are going to refuel we will lose a lot of time.
When using the WC you have to follow the instructions for use, never throwing paper or anything else that can muffle it.
Do not get wet inside. This way we can prevent possible slips.
Remove the sand on the feet and towels before getting on board when we return from the beach.
Avoid climbing with shoes that could damage or stain the cover.
Sailing on a sailboat is very good for our mood, it is an injection of vitamins and a load of positive energy, it means putting the rhythm of your life at the speed of the wind and I assure you it is incredible. Your stress, your problems are left on the ground, your mind opens up and you will enjoy as never before the sunsets and sunrises, the baths and the direct contact with nature. Enjoy it and enjoy it will be an unforgettable experience.
