Learn to sail at an hour from Madrid in a surrounded by natural landscapes in the Burguillo reservoir.

A weekend learning to master sailing, away from the bustle of the city.

The students of the course will be able to register later in the club of the reservoir, that will allow them to sail in the boats of the club by an annual quota.

    The instructor for the course has been Gonzalo, fantastic, very instructive, with a lot of patience and the right dose of theory and practice.
    Very interesting, I would need more information about the club and the options to rent to see if I do level 2 and become a regular at the club.
    Thank you Gonzalo

    Gonzalo, you are a phenomenon. We hadn't had this much fun in a long time.
    What we have learned will remain.
    We will continue with your teachings.
    I hope see you soon.

    Interesting to learn to see the sensations of the wind on your sail. The peak laser sailboat maybe just the right size for an adult but interesting to learn the balances. You have to try it and control the sensations. recommendable

    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
