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.
This level complements the previous two by introducing the symmetric spinnaker and the adjacent maneuvers to this sail. In this level sailors will be able to sail a boat by themselves, with the skipper onboard (or on a motor boat), using the correct sails depending on the wind situation.
To join this level, sailors must have completed the previous three levels or, if not, do an evaluation lesson to prove their skills. This is a continuous level where sailors will try different types of boats, joining several regattas in and out of Porto, in order to keep developing and improving skills. Finally, sailing a boat at its best performance will be part of the learning process.
The course takes place every weekend, with a total time of 3 hours each session, at the following schedules (with the possibility of recovering overdue classes, subject to approval):
|Saturday or Sunday morning||Saturday or Sunday afternoon|
|9:30 am to 13 pm||14:30 pm to 18 pm|
