What you'll do

We will begin with a on land briefing about the basic sailing maneuvers. Then we will procede to take the boat out from the shore (where the water is crystal clear!) and head out into the bay. During the ride passengers are welcome to be as active as you wish. You may want to simply enjoy the view or alternatively you can consider this your first sailing lesson (at the end of which you will probably be helming the sailboat) The bay where we sail is protected by an island that has been categorized as a natura sanctuary, therefore (depending on the time of year) you will be able to see different species of birds, amongst which one of the most special are the Humboldt and Magallanes penguins. There are also sea lions and my favorite are the chungungos (the worlds smallest sea otter). To close the activity we will return to the beach, and i'll be delighted to recommend places to eat, shop, see and everything known to someone who has lived in Algarrobo for more than 20 years.

Ana

I am in love with the sea and the art of moving across it using only the force of the wind. A learned to sail in this same bay at the age of 6, at 17 I began teaching (I have experience with children and adults) and now it has been six years that I have my own laser and use it to share my passion. One of my favorite thing about sailing is that aside from being a practice that is thousands of years old, it allows us to navigate the ocean without any type of contamination (chemical or noise). This makes it perfect to observe marine life. I have a valid "Patron de bahía" license.

What to bring

Water clothing. If you don't have any spacial clothing, just bring something that won't become heavy when if gets wet. Shorts and a t-shirt is perfect, though you may want to bring something for the wind.

More tips

Ideal for solo travelers! Sailing as a practice is susceptible to weather conditions. The sailboat may capsize, this is just one of those things that happen in sailing, it isn't dangerous.
