What you'll do

As this will be the first time most guests have been at sea under sail the priority is to establish exactly how much or how little you want to do on board.
Then a safety briefing and demo will be undertaken.
You will then prepare the boat for going to Sea and we will cast off and leave the marina under motor.
We will then raise the mainsail and Genoa and sail around the beautiful bay of Las Palmas where you will see many of the famous tourist sites such as the magnificent 15th century cathedral and the historic Saint Cristobal fishing village.
When sailing the ship you will learn to feel the wind and distinguish between tacking and gybing.
We will then sail to the beautiful Alcaravaneras bay where you can learn how to safely anchor the boat, before swimming or relaxing on deck. If you do not wish to swim you can even learn the practical skill of tying the knots needed on board.
We will return to the marina under motor where more steering skills will be put into play before finally preparing and mooring the boat.

Everything of course is subject to weather conditions.
Other things to note
This is an experience for enjoyment. The captain will only sail in safe protected water to avoid the possibility of sea sicknesses or discomfort.

I'm Pat, a sailing instructor with 30 years on the ocean wave. I still love being at sea as much as I did on my first voyage. I speak fluent English Spanish and French and love nothing more than sharing my experiences with others and still get a buzz when a newcomer takes the helm for the first time , watching the sheer thrill on their faces. I am a qualified diver and we often go snorkelling with guests.
I am an expert bird ornithologist, as well as avid cetacean watcher.
My first mate is a lady who loves nothing more than teaching guests all aspects of deck work.

We had such a lovely afternoon! Pat and Jess are both lovely people, full of stories and interested in hearing yours. You can do as little or as much on the boat as you like, and the trip ends with time for a swim or relaxation on the boat. We had a great time, can highly recommend!

Extraordinaria experiencia. A pesar de que no hubo casi viento, aprendimos mucho en tres horas. Patrick es muy simpático, y logra crear un ambiente estupendo. Además, es una fuente inagotable de conocimiento sobre el mundo de la vela y el puerto de Las Palmas.

The morning with Pat was a wonderfully refreshing activity, a unique experience that gave us a beautiful perspective of Las Palmas. I had never sailed before but Pat made us feel safe and comfortable, giving us a personalized level of interaction with the boat. Highly recommend, and hope to come back in the future and sail with Pat again!

The sailing trip with Patrick was a real adventure. His charming and funny personality will make it feel like a trip back in time with Robinson Crusoe. Thank you Patrick!

Absolutely exciting sailing adventure on Patrick’s Yacht. My girlfriend and I had never tried it before, however Patrick explained everything in detail and had us take part in activities like steering, tacking, jibing (you name it really!) We successfully maneuvered around the waters in front of Las Palmas. In the meantime Patrick was explaining how the boat works and told stories from his life. Very personal and engaging experience! As it was my girlfriend’s birthday, we even had some of Patrick’s home made fruit cake and were singing Happy Birthday to lit candles. How cool is that?? Thanks so much for the experience and can totally recommend to anybody who is visiting the island and looking for an adventure!
