11 days Sail training Program ~ RYA Course ~ Balearic Islands. OCTOBER 3rd to 13th


When I became an RYA shorebased and cruising Instructor, some Narinan summer crews suggested to organize them a sail training program. Since the first course scheduled in April all of them have been fully booked, next month of October I’ll be teaching another 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

The course will take place in the bay of Pollença, Mallorca Is. The bay, aside from its beauty. is a truly sailor’s paradise, where any conditions can be found to practice the whole course syllabus.

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.
