Boat details

The Elan 45 sailboat is very spacious both on deck and in the kitchen area, living room and cabins. It has two double cabins and one with a double bunk. Two bathrooms, one in the common area and one in the bow bathroom.
Wide bimini for anchoring, and easy to fold during navigation to see the sails well and maneuver.
Very good navigation with little wind and easy handling in more demanding navigations.

    A well planned, organized and executed workshop. Designed by expert sailors for sailors who one day want to be one and who, first, will have to overcome a lot of fears that arise continuously in the workshop and have to be resolved by aspiring skippers.
    Perfect mix of learning and fun.

    Excellent experience for anyone who wants to acquire the knowledge, autonomy and security to be a skipper or simply enjoy a few days at sea. Eduardo and his team of skippers (Paco, Luna, Luis,...) are exceptional people. Very good atmosphere and organization. 100% recommended.

    A highly recommended navigation workshop for the quality and combination of practical experience sailing and applying maneuvers and techniques, together with the theoretical review of everything there is to know to skipper a sailing boat. The team of instructors make a difference with their knowledge and human quality.

    Fantastic instructor, very good hiking companion and excellent person. His courses, which he organizes in a meticulous way, do not leave you indifferent and you learn yes or yes in a playful and entertaining way. Next summer I repeat.
