Brief description of the holiday
I invite you to join me for our next sailing course for neophyte and sailing enthusiast who wish above all to spend a nice weekend in the good mood and share nice moments with your future teammates.
I'm waiting for you on Monday morning at the port of Minimes. We will do the refueling and I will give you the safety instructions on board and then we go! We will set sail for the big blue and freedom.
During this weekend we will cover all topics of navigation:
- Port entry / exit
- Navigation by night
and the most important but not the least you'll be the one to maneuver!
We will sail towards the Pertuis islands (Ré, Aix , Oleron ) pass close to Fort Boyard and continue until the beautiful Yeu's island.
After a night at the port or anchorage in the Pertuis, we will return on Friday to the port of La Rochelle around 16:00. A little collective cleaning and then a warm goodbye before we meet again for the next cruise.
Ready to set sail?
The Gin Fizz is ideal for long cruises. It is the first large cruising sailboat Jeanneau. Innovative for his time, it was sold 350 copies and was also offered in ketch and dinghy. Its deep central cockpit and good stiffness to the canvas make it a popular boat for large family trips, ideal for safety and conviviality. Gin Fizz is approved for 10 people. However, I limit groups so that everyone is really comfortable.
