The boat: A schooner type Fillao (9m):
Stable boat with plenty of clearance for easy maneuvering.
The program : At the beginning of the course, the monitor evaluates the level of each and defines a program for the week on the following possibilities:

Adjustment of sails at different speeds - Harbor maneuvers (departure and arrival at sail and engine)
Safety maneuvers (Man overboard) - Boot intake, safety grip...
