(Use the arrows on the right to navigate through the different course levels)
Designed for people who have never sailed and need all the basic notions, both of security and of maneuvering a sailing boat. In this first level boats will be sailed only with Mainsail and Genoa. Dependent on weather conditions.
Designed to help sailors to continue to develop the skills learned in the previous level, by introducing some concepts of navigation in different situations, using the Spinnaker. At the end of this level, having completed both 1st and 2nd levels, BBDouro ensures that all the sailors are able to sail safely.
To enroll in this level, sailors must have already attended the initiation and improvement levels. This level is given in Beneteau First 47.7 or Jeanneau 53. The goal is to transition from smaller boats to larger vessels and thus learn to handle a sailboat in its fundamental issues. Learning is based on maneuvering / unmooring the boat, anchoring, getting in and out of the marina, understanding all the electronics and navy associated with large boats.
