On Monday at 10 a.m. the jetty, area and boat briefing will take place for all sailing sailors (approx. 1.5 hours). The advanced course then meets daily at 2:30 p.m. Depending on the group and wind conditions, practical training sessions, theory, dry runs and longer strokes alternate until 6 p.m. On Thursday afternoon there will be a longer flotilla excursion to one of the beautiful bays in the Formentor area. The highlight and conclusion of the regatta for the “Pollensa Racing Cup” will take place on Friday afternoon. The full-day sailors go recreational sailing under supervision in the morning or can also take part in the exercises of the transition course.
