This is a holiday dedicated to
- Sailing School
Brief description of the holiday
By trying all the different roles on board (at the helm, at the main or at the jib), the crew will maneuver the boat at different speed, going upwind or downwind, tacking, jibing and gaining familiarity with sheets, halyards, winches, reefs and mooring lines. While cruising and sailing, we will deep dive into all the issues related to the fine setting of the sails, crew position and seamanship (nautical terminology, knots, docking, life on board). This weekend is suitable for those approaching sailing for the first time and wishing to learn from scratch, as well as for those who want to consolidate their knowledge, achieved in previous experiences.

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. Our boat is CASSIOPEA, a Bavaria 39 'cruiser with a rolling main and genoa and a beautiful 120mq blue spinnaker which we nicknamed BIG BAMBU' :-) 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.
