Beginners will be shown general rope work and deck equipment, how to trim the sails, tie knots correctly, steer a boat under sail and power, handle the sails, mooring , anchoring and basic navigation. You will learn as well the basic sailing techniques and basic manoeuvres in sailing (tacking and jibing). Apart from all mentioned above, you will be familiar with the life habits on the boat such as cooking, sleeping, hygiene, coexistence with other sailors, moving in a confined space, along with all other situations that life imposes on board.
