Accessible sailing experience
Have you ever admired the Cathedral of Palma from the sea? It is a wonderful sight and now is your chance to experience this combined with sailing. After all, there is nothing more freeing than sailing through the water, the wind in your hair, and the horizon in the distance. This accessible sailing experience will take place both ashore and at sea. The introduction to sailing includes theoretical and practical classes. Firstly, you will practice the technique in the harbor of Palma on a boat. Secondly, when you are ready, you take the boat out to sea and practice your newfound skills and knowledge.
The boats you will practice in are singlehanded boats or larger boats, and they are all completely adapted. The boats have a counterweight at the end of the keel for greater stability. The introduction to sailing will take place in the port of Palma and will last approximately 2 hours. There will always be a qualified monitor present on board that attends to all the needs of the participants.
Before starting, there will be a form that needs to be signed and you will have to pass a simple test to see if there are no obstacles. Safety above all!
