Adapted Sailing School

We are pleased to announce that the Monte Real Club de Yates has started its sailing courses for people with physical and mental disabilities.

With the collaboration of the Juan Maria Center and the Encaixamos Val Miñor Association, the first theoretical and practical classes began on January 15.

The coordinator of the Carlos Rúa Sailing School and the coaches Samuel Montouto, Carlos Hernandéz and David Fontán have traveled to the Juan Maria Center, who have given a theoretical class supported by videos and didactic material, with which they have begun to discover the world of sailing and the sea.

In the case of sailing aimed at the physically disabled, the boys from the Encaixamos Val Miñor Association have come to the MRCYB, who have had the opportunity to enjoy a theoretical class and a practice session in which they have already been able to get on the boat and they have dared to handle it enjoying the new sensations that the sea offers them.

This is just the beginning of what we hope will be a long journey with all these groups of boys and girls, since their desire and enthusiasm are great.
