Navigator's Guide

Before starting to sail, when boarding a boat for the first time the following basic rules and recommendations must be taken into account:

  • It is important that you take your time to know the boat and its operation.
  • You should check the equipment and order everything that you could need during the navigation so that to find it easily.
  • Although you already know how to sail it is always advisable to stay with another person, who if possible knows the area. Thus, it will bring you security, calm and in case of aid, you will have 2 more hands.
  • If you are hiring a skipper for several days remember that he is working and is in charge of running the boat. His job is not to act as steward or cook and you must take into account his daily rest.
  • The skipper is who better knows the area and the weather conditions, so you should follow his advises and attend his recommendations.
  • The skipper is the responsible and therefore he is free to decide not to sail if he considers that the weather conditions are not adequate or if there is a significant risk for the boat itself and its occupants.
  • It is recommendable to bring comfortable and breathable clothing in addition to solar protection, a coat and a jacket, because although it seems to be hot, when in open sea and especially at night is always colder and windy.
  • It is mandatory to bring comfortable white soles footwear. Dark-soled shoes and sneakers are prohibited as they are not suitable to use on a boat and leave marks and scratches.
  • It should be avoided to go barefooted as with the movements of the boat it is easy to hurt oneself in the feet.
  • Do not throw anything to the sea, as it is prohibited. Among all of us we must take care of the sea to enjoy it clean.
  • If you are sailing a motorboat, fuel consumption must be taken into account, especially in fast boats or yachts. Depending on how you use them it could be one of the highest expenses in a multi-day rental as you would pay it separately.
  • If there are children or babies on board they should be protected from the sun and cold. It is very important that you take care of their safety at all times.
  • Finally, we strictly recommend you to relax and enjoy the experience, as you deserve it!
