Very enriching experience. Agustín, the skipper at all times, very attentive and very pedagogical, made the entire crew collaborate in the operations on the boat. Highly recommended.

Excellent way to start or perfect maneuvers in port.
The teacher left us our own initiative and he was correcting us during the exercise.
Very clear instructions and very useful tricks.

Las prácticas de fondeo fueron muy amenas e interesantes! El patrón, Sebastián, tenía mucha experiencia de navegación y la sabía transmitir muy bien. Recomiendo la Escuela, voy a repetir seguro!

Communication with Luis was perfect once we got in touch via his nautical center. Communication via sailwiz is impossible.
Regarding the content of the LdN course, in my opinion it is terribly deficient. They don't even teach you how to throw and pick up an anchor.

Hello Javier, thank you very much for your evaluation. Comment that we correctly comply with the requirements of the Merchant Marine curriculum for the formation of the Navigation License. It is a very compressed course and I agree with you that it cannot cover all aspects of navigation.

Everything very easy and fast, he answered my questions without problems. I did not know Adrià personally but the members of the school who gave the course were all very friendly. Thank you

Absolutely Fantastic!!! Nora was excellent at teaching in 2 seperate languages, and her experience as a Captain was amazing. We would recommend sailing with Nora any day, and we would go again. Thank you for a great sailing experience!!!!!!
