11 days Sail training Program ~ RYA Course ~ Balearic Islands. June 16th to 26th


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 is already fully booked, next month of Junel 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 trip starts in Mallorca Island, and we will be hopping nice anchorages until we arrive to Menorca Island. It is schedule we will spend two dauys in the unique Cabrera Archipelago National Park.

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.
