Cruise Courses MRCYB

During the summer months, the Monte Real Yacht Club of Bayonne organizes cruise courses for all those who want to learn to sail, improve their technique or simply spend a different kind of holiday, enjoying the sea with friends.

The courses are weekly, from Monday to Friday , with three and a half hours of navigation each day, in the morning (10:00 – 13:30) or in the afternoon (16:00 – 19:30) . There is also the possibility of taking an intensive course over a weekend .

Although the classes are essentially practical, to learn how to maneuver and make decisions at sea, they also include theoretical knowledge to become familiar with nautical nomenclature, the parts of the boat and how it works, and the basic concepts of sailing. Always with a coach on board, you start sailing in the calm waters of the Bay of Baiona and end up heading out to the open sea.

The courses are suitable for people of any age and no special material is required, although it is advisable to wear comfortable shoes, a jacket that protects from the cold and wind, sunglasses and sunscreen. Boarding takes place at the Monte Real Club de Yates facilities, located within the walled enclosure of the Parador de Baiona.

The price of the courses (weekly in the morning, weekly in the afternoon or intensive at the weekend) is 125 euros , with a special discount for club members. To register or receive more information, you can call 986 385 000 / 625 261 586 or send an email to secretaria@mrcyb.com . The courses will be held as long as there is a minimum of 4 people signed up.
