    In this case our boss was Daniel, not Iván. The experience was very good, the boats used were in very good condition and the person in charge of giving us the training showed a lot of experience and skills to transmit confidence and explain the maneuvers and operation of the equipment.

    First of all say that this trip is for people who are a little initiated in the art of navigation. I applied without experience, but despite everything I was accepted and welcomed into the group without any problem. In the end I enjoyed it and above all I learned a lot about coastal navigation, sails and the study of the wind. Thank you
