course schedule

On Monday at 10 a.m. all children will be introduced to the dock, area and boat and then they will sail in and out. At 1:30 p.m. we take a well-deserved lunch break. The advanced course then meets again on Monday at 2:30 p.m. and from Tuesday the course starts daily at 2:30 p.m. Depending on the group experience and wind conditions, practical training sessions, theory, dry runs and longer strokes alternate until 6 p.m. The highlight and conclusion of the regatta for the “Pollensa Racing Cup” will take place on Friday afternoon. The full-day sailors take part in the exercises of the introductory course in the morning.

IMPORTANT: The cat building course preferably takes place in the afternoon due to the stronger wind conditions. However, due to weather conditions or the number of participants, changes to the course schedule are possible or necessary.
