    Sailing Summer Camp Spain

    3 sailing lessons every morning from Monday to Friday to learn sailing in GAMBA, LASER SB3· and LASER STRATOS sailboats:

    From the first week you will be ready to start learning to navigate.

    After a short theoretical introduction to the basis of sailing, such as: rigging up, wind, basic trimming, rudder, centreboard, capsize and recovery... you will be doing some basic practices on the channel of the school and right after, sail away on your Skif sailboat under the supervision of an instructor.
    Young sailors start to sail divided into groups of 5-6 people in fast boats that will make them feel many new things.
    Campers finish the course sailing on their own boats in groups of 2-3 students or alone supervised by an instructor on a safety boat.

      Alicante Spain: Mediterranean cuisine

      This small Nautical Club has a long history.

      It was founded in 1973 near Alicante by a group of enthusiasts of water sports trying to spread their passion for the sea.

      The Alicante Costa Blanca Nautical Club is located to the North of the bay, just near the Albufereta Beach, sheltered by the sea on a plain sea area.

      Surrounded by beaches on a safe and quiet bay, the Nautical Club is the perfect place for teens to start or continue their relationship with the waves and the wind.

      Nautical Club is an organisation officially approved by the Valencia Sailing Federation and, therefore, it follows the obligatory parameters in training, safety, material, and facilities: a trainer for every seven students, safety boats, own sea area limited by the coastal authorities, different boat types, safety coordinator, etc.

      The Sailing School of the Costa Blanca Nautical Club has a qualified and highly experienced team; trainers are, in many cases, elite competitors with an important sports curriculum. It has been chosen by the Puma Team of the Round the World Tour Alicante 2008 as the official school, recognising thus the school’s role in the world of sailing and its work promoting water sports.

      Nautical Club facilities have showers and changing rooms, activity room, and classrooms for theory lessons with different audiovisual means, as well as café and restaurant.
