Brief description of the holiday
Thanks to the 25th april holiday, we have the opportunity to set sail offshore for a 4-days cruise that will take us (depending on the weather) to Corsica, Capraia or to the French Riviera. It will be an opportunity also to brush up all the concepts of "traditional navigation” (nautical charts, true and magnetic course, variation and deviation, etc.), without using for once electronics and GPS. Before leaving the harbor you will learn how to create a passage plan, how to make a thorough analysis of the weather and how to prepare the boat for offshore sailing. During navigation will take turns at the helm and, using a hand-bearing compass, a divider and a chart, we will check our position until destination. If the conditions are met we will also do a night navigation and, in total, we will cover about 150 miles. This experience is suitable for all sailors, offshore lovers and to those who are about to take their nautical license and want to brush up on traditional navigation techniques.

Other useful information
On board the crew will have to team work during navigation and all other normal boat operations such as anchoring, mooring, preparing meals and sharing of common spaces. We will sleep on the boat in two-bunks cabins with our personal sleeping bag. The navigation area and the program will obviously depend on sea and weather conditions in order to fully enjoy our weekend without jeopardizing safety on board. Every weekend with us is a unique (and always original) opportunity to learn, gain experience and stay with people which share the same passion for the sea and for sailing.
