STAGE 1 

COURSES

Veleros Colombia shares its passion for Cruising Sailboats with students of different profiles. It is not required to have previous experience and the philosophy is "learn navigating" when carrying out the complete courses navigating between 2-7 days.

 

THE FIRST STAGE consists of the introductory, intermediate, and advanced levels. In this stage the student will learn how to maneuver a boat, adjust the sails, and maintain the desired course, as well as identify the marine signals, learn to read nautical charts, find their position in the water and identify the elements of the natural world that affect the waters and winds.

At the end of these 3 courses the student will have a basic knowledge of all aspects related to this type of Sailboats and will have sailed in different boats for more than 400 nautical miles being the Patron of several of them with night experiences and important emergency exercises, like the basic knowledge. At the end you will also obtain your Yate Pattern license for national waters granted by accredited instructors which complements your training.
