    The course has been phenomenal. The patron was Iñaki and he has been wonderful. He has explained many things to us about navigation in general to adults of the course syllabus. Advice, interpretation of navigation, etc. A 10 for him. The boat was great too.

    It's not the fault of the organizer, but unpresentable taxi driver

    The boss was Ignacio. The theoretical training was bearable and he presented us with various very interesting apps. The practice by the estuary was a very pleasant moment.
