SORTIDA Naveguem COSTA BRAVA Pekas-Queralt
DEPARTURE We sail COSTA BRAVA
OLYMPIC PORT - CAP DE CREUS
Adventure, sea, sports sailing, sharing, discovering with a super PATRON.
You can go to the Costa Brava in many ways. Ours is sailing to these crystalline waters with the Pekas, a true regatta boat and living an experience on board of how to plan, organize and carry out a sailing trip.
Why a regatta boat? To sail. Normally we sail with “motorsailers” if there is little wind or it does not blow as we want, we start the engine. On a racing boat you move from the "first breeze" if you use the sail that touches. Learn to put the right candle, do not confirm yourself in starting the engine. The Pekas is equipped with 3 headsails, mainsail and two Spinnaker to sail in all winds and forget about the engine.
Characteristics of the boat: Austere but comfortable for 5 people plus the landlady. It has a bathroom, kitchen, refrigerator and open space for bedding and beds.
We will do chart and GPS navigation. The team will define the details of the route and the stops according to the weather forecast and the interests we have; learning and sharing the ins and outs of coastal navigation with charts and positioning with shore observations. We will have electronic devices on board that we will also learn to use for comfortable and safe navigation.
The management of the logistics and organization of the crossing is one of the key points for the nautical adventure to be satisfactory, we will also learn what to think about and prepare before, during and after the navigation.
In addition, there will be a few days of connection with the sea, sailing, practice of maneuvers, the characteristic seafaring practices of the voyages and of life on board.
ENVIRONMENT - Why Ruta Norte?
The Costa Brava is, surely, one of the best known coasts of the Mediterranean due to its essence and the richness of its protected ecosystems.
The Formigues Islands, the great unknown of the Palamós-Calella-Llafranc area, are a protected area with a long history of pirates and sailors. The locals, in times of naval battles, used these stones that protruded from the water to sink enemy ships, especially in night battles or with formed sea. Currently, it is the natural habitat of cormarins and in the interior there are remains of these boats and a protected marine ecosystem where posidonia and fish are abundant to discover.
In front of the Estartit, there is the richest and most well-protected treasure in the area: the Medes Islands. The seabed is by far one of the most abundant ecosystems in species and specimens, that is why people come from all over the world to dive and do free-diving. There is a high probability of encountering large groupers and a great diversity of fish in posidonia, rocks and caves.
Cap de Creus, the easternmost point of the entire Iberian Peninsula, the Pyrenees plunging into the Mediterranean, is truly a spectacle of nature well eroded by the tramontana. Between Rosas and Port de la Selva, Cadaqués in the heart and surrounded by endless coves. Depending on the wind blowing, we go north or south of the Cape and enjoy the reserve, which above all provides us with flat sea.
All this without counting on endless corners and sensations such as entering the Gisbert cave, La Foradada, Cala Rusa, anchoring and having a paella in Cala Pelosa, and much more.
