To start approaching the world of sailing in small steps.
Small cabin cruisers with a crew of 4/5, and an instructor on board at all times, for basic sailing but with a glimpse of great horizons. In addition to the basic program (nomenclature, basic maneuvers, arming and disarming), you will also cover buoy handling, departure and arrival from port, the rudiments of engine operation and hints on sail reduction. For the first time you will be part of a real crew!
The trip continues and the horizons get wider…
A sailing course aimed at those who have already consolidated the basic maneuvers and nomenclature, where navigation can also be quite challenging.
The program gets more and more interesting: man overboard, anchorages, buoy handling and sail reductions. We begin to talk about boat and crew management; in short, everything we need to prepare for a real cruise.
