11 days Sail training Program ~ RYA Course ~ Barcelona to Balearics and back. April 14th to 24th


Since I became an RYA shorebased and cruising Instructor, some Narinan summer crews suggested to organize them a sail training program. Next month of April I’ll be teaching an RYA Course on board.

It’s a mixed theory and practical course under the standards of the British “Royal Yachting Association”. I’ll be teaching it under the supervision of the RYA recognised training center MTSail.org

Learn to skipper a short passage with me on hand to give advice and encouragement and ensure your safety. Experience being in charge, taking credit when it all goes well and being responsible when it doesn't.

This course equips you with enough knowledge to navigate around familiar waters.
