Aventura ofrecida por Catherine

6 días
Disponible en Español
Starting locally in the bay, you will get a great introduction to sailing sheltered by the Rock of Gibraltar with dolphins in your wake. You return to Gibraltar after the first days sailing for a well earned drink at one of the local bars while your Instructor prepares dinner on the yacht. Half the fun is living on board the yacht and the adventure of going to new places by sea. During the week we like to cross the Straits to Africa which is always exciting and often forms part of the night sail (4 hours starting at sunset). We always overnight in marinas, which could include one of many cosmopolitan marinas on the Spanish Mediterranean coast, or in contrast the natural Costa de la Luz and soft sandy beaches of the Atlantic coast. We run Competent crew courses alongside the Skipper courses so there is an opportunity to practice towards the Day Skipper if you wish to do so. The emphasis is on enjoying yourself as well as learning and we find everyone mucks in as a team. By the end of the course you will be able to steer, handle sails, keep a lookout and assist in all the day-to-day routines. Of course there is no pressure to do a course at all so if at any time you want to just treat the week as an adventure that’s fine too.

    People of this school have an incredible navigation experience and they transmit it by mentoring us in all the work on the boat: testing engine, planning route, triming, controling wheel and docking or undocking.
    Mi probema fue mi ingles para aprovechar la experiencia a pesar de la paciencia de Ian y la tripu.

    We've enjoyed our Day skipper course very much and learned a lot from our instructor John who allowed us to make mistakes and learn from them. The straits of Gibraltar are an excellent area to test your skills and experience sailing in close proximity of large vessels. We recommend this sailing school to anyone who is seriously interested in sailing.

    Staff highly responsive & professional. Training prepared in every aspect, starting from registration and on-boarding to yacht preparation and training on the water itself. Lots of useful, practical tips on handling the yacht & manoeuvres. I did the Day Skipper course there and can recommend the school for beginners and/or people who wish to further enhance sailing skills.
