Sailing in the summer months in either Valencia or Palma de Mallorca with local Sailing Schools is a great addition to your Spanish language studies. In Palma you can book private sailing classes year round – so there is always the opportunity to hit the waves (to recover from your latest Spanish grammar class!).
Whether you a complete beginner to Sailing or an experienced sailor you will love this opportunity to master the sailing skills covered in this programme. Gain a solid knowledge of boat handling, meteorology, seamanship, safety at sea, nautical terms, rope work, sail handling, rules of the road, helmsman-ship and general duties above and below deck! Students receive expert tuition on a Beneteau Platu 25 yacht, which is based at Valencia’s Yachting Marina (which was home to the 32 nd America’s Cup). This programme is VERY popular in the summer months, so early reservations are recommended, as places are limited!
If you are looking for language improvement but like to be active then why not combine your Spanish language course in Palma with 15 lessons of Sailing each week. Students can choose between group sailing lessons (offered in July and August, as long as there are at least 4 students enrolled on the sailing programme) or private sailing tuition lessons (year round). Insurance for sailing course is included. Courses to suit all sailing levels (including beginners) and all equipment hire. Transfers to and from sailing school can be arranged, and will be charged at local rate in Palma.
