CONTROL & AUTONOMY
The course is aimed at adults aged 16 or more who have already attended other courses and intend to increase progression, with the aim of achieving a good level of control and safety in the conduct of a sailboat, at the same time beginning to appreciate the more technical aspects of sailing.
The course will focus on perfectioning all basic maneuvres; understanding weather conditions and their effects on sailboat behaviour; adapting boat and sail setup to different wind and sea conditions; understanding crew roles onboard and their interactions.
For practice lessons at sea we will use a Tridente 16′, a collective boat equipped with mainsail, jib and (in case) spinnaker that can accommodate up to five adults.
The courses are either collective or individual. The lessons, lasting about 2 hours each, are held in the afternoon slot from Monday to Friday (14.30-sunset), while on Saturday and Sunday are available both the morning (9.00-13.00) and the afternoon (14.30-sunset) slots. The lesson plan will be agreed from time to time with the instructor, according to participants’ needs and availability of places.
All participants (regardless of age) must be able to swim and must be accompanied by a medical certificate attesting fitness for non-competitive sports. The Club will provide for individual safety devices, which for all students will be made up, compulsorily, by the lifejacket.
All participants will be registered to the Italian Sailing Federation (cost 20 euros, to be paid once at the moment of first registration, then valid for one year), and will be assisted by FIV Instructors throughout the entire course, both on land and at sea.
All the activities will take place at our Nautical Base in San Catado di Lecce, next to York Beach. Our staff is available for any question: please contact us.
