The Monte Real Club de Yates will reopen its Sailing School this summer adopting special hygiene, health and safety protocols due to COVID-19. Although sailing is a low-risk sport, with hardly any physical contact and always practiced outdoors, the Baionese club has preferred to implement specific measures with the aim of guaranteeing the peace of mind of its users.

All coaches will be tested for COVID-19, and both they and the students will have to pass a temperature check at the entrance of the club; they will have to wear a mask whenever they are not in the water; after each use, all boats and materials will be disinfected; the boats will be distributed with the required separation; and the theoretical activities will be carried out abroad. It is also planned to promote personal hygiene measures such as hand washing, and the club’s facilities will be systematically disinfected.

Another of the measures to be applied involves a significant reduction in the ratio of students per boat and course, so places will be very limited and will be awarded in strict order of enrollment. Although the courses and activities will not start until June 29, the registration period is now open and you can request a place or information at the club.

The Monte Real summer campaign includes proposals so that children and adults can learn to sail and enjoy the sea in the Rías Baixas during the months of July, August and September. The Baionese club offers dinghy and cruising sailing courses, courses to learn to sail in one day, and sailing activities at sunset or to the Cíes Islands.

For the youngest members of the household, aged between 7 and 16, the Baionese club organizes Weekly light sailing courses , in the morning or afternoon, so that children can have a first contact with sailing or improve their technique with different types of boats if they already know how to sail.

For those over 16 years of age, Monte Real offers weekly cruising sailing courses , also with the option to choose a morning or afternoon schedule. Always accompanied by a coach from the club, with these courses the students learn to sail in the calm waters of the bay of Baiona and end up going out to the open sea to perfect their knowledge on board the sailboat.

And for those who want to learn to sail but do not have a week to attend the course, Monte Real also offers Courses to learn to sail in one day . During a day, from morning to afternoon, the participants will be able to learn the basic maneuvers to handle a boat.

Sailing to the Cíes Islands or at sunset are other proposals from the Monte Real Yacht Club for this summer , aimed above all at families or groups of friends who want to enjoy sailing while learning sailing concepts.

In the case of Sailing to the Cíes Islands, it is a one-day activity, from eleven in the morning to seven in the evening, which includes a sailing trip to the archipelago during which you learn to sail and disembark on the island to eat and have a guided visit to the natural park.

Between July and September there is also the possibility of Sunset Sailing , an activity with which to discover the keys to handling a sailing vessel as the day falls.
