This course taught at the San Juan Reservoir, is especially suitable for those who, having a previous experience in cruise sailing, wish to deepen their knowledge. The participant will leave this day equipped with solid knowledge to be a competent crew on board a sailing cruise.

We will start the day explaining concepts around the nature of the wind and how the sail transforms its force into momentum for the ship. After a couple of theoretical notions, we will go to the water to explain the different balances on board and how to maintain them, we will review the controls of the sails and how they influence their performance, and we will navigate to practice their influence on the boat.

When we feel confident enough about our ability, we will review the fundamental maneuvers and how to optimize them, then introducing new ones referring to the ship's stop and rag reduction in strong wind environments.

The boat
Day cruise based on the San Juan Reservoir. It is an ideal boat for teaching due to its capacity and nobility of reactions, and for regattas in protected waters since its design, derived from the j80, makes it a fast and ventolinero boat. It is equipped with a spinaker maneuver, which gives it a good disposition for regattas.

Yacht captain and PPER with extensive experience in crossings and regattas. I enjoy sailing in almost any situation, relaxed on vacation or competitive of regattas. I do not care about the bad weather or sleep little or anywhere but I detest the problems of coexistence on board.
