What you'll do

Welcome to the maritime world! On board our 13.50 meter expedition sailboat you will do all the maneuvers!
 We will see how to moor and undock our sailboat and learn the three basic knots of sailing. Barely out of the port of Minimes, we hoist the sails for a day of joyful discovery. We will see the gaits and how to steer the sailboat. The rules for passing between sailboats and markup. The reduction in wing control of the ship.
 Aussie There are moments of relaxation, idleness and observation of the water and nature. All in a good mood, relaxation and pleasure, this is not a school sailing course!
The sea trip lasts 4 hours, so we will see the historical and natural heritage of La Rochelle and the pertuis.

I am a Franco Argentinian sailor, state graduate, with more than 20 years of experience in learning to sail. I own the sailboat that I built with my hands. I take long-distance cruises to discover nature and distant cultures (Patagonia, Pacific, Great North ...). I love sailing like the first day and would like to show you what fascinates me!

Where you'll be

Sail the historic waters of La Rochelle, from the port of Minimes to the Old Port. Enjoy a superb view of the deck of our sailboat. Sail in the harbor of La Rochelle towards Île de Re. Pass under the bridge that links the island to the mainland and enjoy a unique perspective. Go along Sablanceaux beach to return with the west breeze to our port at Le Minimes.

Franchement, l'accueil est très à la limite. Je suis en avance au rdv, monsieur m'a indiqué un 2e endroit. Sur ce, aucun problème, mais il m'a pressé par deux coup de téléphone avec un don de chef. Idem, il aurait pu être plus patient sur l'explication de manutention, on est en vacation mais pas à l'école de conduire. La sorite et vue de mer est intéressante quand même.

La balade en voilier est vraiment sympa, Dario nous accueille à bord avec son chien Bosco, il prend le temps d'expliquer aux voyageurs les rudiments de la navigation, les règles de sécurité, et nous fait participer aux manoeuvres.

Dario ist ein toller Typ, mit seinem Hund Bosco und seinen Erklärungen hat der Segeltörn großen Spaß gemacht. Er war mit uns Anfängern sehr geduldig und wir konnten einiges selber ausprobieren und mitmachen.
