Review of the arrival of a fleet of 5 First 27 at the highly-regarded Italian sailing school, located in the Maddalena archipelago, between Corsica and Sardinia, on an old military base. Can you tell us a little about the Centro Velico Caprera?

Our school is over 50 years old, and has a great legacy that began with the Italian Navy. So our distinguishing features are our high-performance training courses and our stringent rules. We are fortunate to be based in an ideal location for sailing. Our primary strength is our approach to instructor training. All our instructors are former students of the sailing school. We have trained 2, since it was founded! We are also backed by a large number of voluntary workers, who help with the smooth running of the school.

We are a non-profit organization and their support is essential. We go out in nearly all types of weather conditions, excluding the worst, of course, but all we want to do is sail!

So we were looking for an all-weather boat , allowing instructive well-organized teaching methods, and yet remaining fun and educational. We also needed a reliable boat. We cater to around 3, students every year, so naturally we are very careful about this. What is more, any maintenance required must be carried out at night so that the boats can sail the next morning.

So we need a boat that is easy to maintain. The First 27 fulfils all these conditions. It is a real plus for a school to be associated with a trusted brand such as BENETEAU, since we can count on a high standard of service and our needs always being met.

In what learning environment are you using the First 27? These courses are for students who already have the theoretical and technical basics, who know how to manoeuvre and who wish to improve and get ready for long-distance cruising.

Since we received the First 27 fleet, the number of C3 training requests has grown exponentially. We already trained more than students before the boats were delivered in and we are delighted with their enthusiasm for this new boat.

They find it simple, fast and good fun, which is an essential condition to learning. We are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the 5 th sailing yacht, which will help meet growing demands and get us ready for the start of the season! An experienced instructor and himself a former student, he also competes in top-level sailing events, often with Persico Marine. Go to the menu Go to the content Go to the search field.
