Navegavela Sailing school
At the Navegavela nautical school we have two classrooms to teach our nautical degrees; in San Sebastian at the Real Club Nautico de San Sebastian, in the heart of the capital of Gipuzkoa, and in Irun in the Poligono Gabiria with its own parking.
We offer Blended and Face-to-face courses, PER courses on board, PER Express courses and On-line courses based in Donostia and Irun so you don’t have to travel. Navegavela Nautical School has classrooms equipped with audiovisual aids where we teach courses for PNB, PER and Yacht Skipper qualifications, in addition to radio courses. For the Navigation License course and for Safety and Navigation, Sailing and extension of PER title we have at our disposal several sailing boats in the ports of San Sebastian, Hondarribia and Getxo.
You will learn the theory from the hand of our captain Aitzol Burguete who will sail with you on land and at sea, who will transmit his passion to his profession.
Recreational Vessel Skipper’s Licence (PER)
The PER licence is the most popular Spanish sailing qualification. It allows you to skipper boats up to 12m long, within 12 miles of the coast.
The nautical chart navigation part of the exam is easy and, if well explained, will get you hooked on sailing. You will also have to do 16 hours of on-board sailing and radio practice.
The SUPER PER is a more advanced version of the PER licence. Candidates sail off-shore for 24 hours non-stop, taking turns at the helm, sleeping on board and watching the sunrise. The Super PER licence allows you to sail from mainland Spain to the Balearic Islands and skipper 24-metre boats.
