Trapeze Initiation

Private 3 hours lesson to get skills to use the hicking harness in a dinghy sailing boat.

The harness is used to hang from the mast by means of a cable and with an adjustable line system in order to provide more leverage and stability on the boat. It is used on a variety of dinghies and catamarans.
From an ergonomic point of view, it is undoubtedly the best way to make a sash and maintain balance, as the crew member is suspended from their centre of gravity, hanging by means of the harness that embraces the lumbar and dorsal spine of the crew member, and this in turn is attached to the boat. 

This course is designed for those who already know how to sail individually and are looking to expand their knowledge of the sport of dinghy sailing.  

It lasts 3 hours and the cost is as follows:
- 1 person / 80€.
- 2 people / 120€.
- 3 people / 140€.
- 4 people / 160€.
