If you want to learn how to sail a sailboat so as to take your own rhumb without having to hire a skipper in the future, we recommend you to take a sailing course and get your sailing license in San Sebastian in just only six hours of sailing.
Driving a sailboat is an activity that anyone can undertake. Neither maximum skills are required, nor starting since young as in other sports. To get the navigation license you don’t need to take any exam. It will be enough with:
- Being older than 16 years old
- Attend an approved nautical school which can issue these licenses and take the official courses that consist of:-Theoretical 2 hours training in a classroom or ship.-Practical training of 4 hours on a boat.
- Get a medical certificate, similar to those for vehicle driving license, usually obtained in the same centers.
Another of the recommended requirements is manage to stay and move afloat even if it means swimming without style. Anyway, when we enter the sea, we must, by regulation, wear a life jacket.
