Coastal navigation with night at sea or port stop during which you will fully enjoy the different aspects of a life on board while training in the techniques necessary for autonomy on a sailboat. The on-board monitor adapts his instructions according to the level and objectives of each team member (port manoeuvers, local and general weather, chart chart with and without GPS, settings, mooring, beaconing, reefing, spinnaker manoeuvers, etc.) .
You will approach safety (technical management of the sailboat, specific manoeuvers), navigation (point on nautical chart, weather forecast, taking into account the tide, logbook monitoring, use of on-board electronics, …), techniques (spinnaker, gennaker, staysail, reduction, sailing manoeuvers, porting to the engine, trunk outlet,…), night navigation, etc.
The purpose is generally for trainees to rent, buy a boat, integrate a crew for a cruise or simply the pleasure of knowing how to sail aboard a sailboat in complete safety.
