Sail Training and racing on the TOMs

The CBYA runs regular sail training sessions on the TOM sailing yachts owned by Real Club Náutico Calpe.

As you can see, they are now getting smart new paintwork !

These sailing sessions usually take place every week on Thursdays and Saturdays, in the absence of any other special events.

All crew have to be paid-up CBYA members, and need to purchase a Licensia Federativa before sailing. This includes insurance cover for all sailing events throughout the European Union. You can view the 2023 prices by clicking HERE.

These events are provided in order to:

    1. Introduce new members to the TOMs
    2. Provide sail training for beginners
    3. Improve sailing and racing skills for the more experienced sailors

The training sessions include:

    • Safety briefing (including use of a CBYA handheld marine VHF radio)
    • Rigging 
    • Leaving the marina
    • Tacking & gybing
    • Heaving to
    • Flying the spinnaker
    • Returning to the marina
    • De-rigging 

Normally all crew members have the opportunity to helm, and take a turn on different crew positions.
