  • Curso de iniciación a la vela en embalse del Burguillo

    Interesting option to know the wind and its whims. To be patient and know that the wind does not always take you where you want, but in the end you get there, both the monitors and the instructor very well, with a lot of patience. The determination they put in to teach you over and over again what to correct is incredible. The ideal place for controlled navigation. That is if the winds come from everywhere. You learn for sure. I recommend it to you

    We had a great time and enjoyed the day on and off the water. The worst, the queues to eat and the traffic jam to get there. The best, the attention of all the staff.
