    The course fulfilled everything expected, we had an excellent ratio of students (3 students and a skipper), favoring the navigation time of each student as well as maintaining a certain distance (COVID). Juan Alberto was close, explained everything clearly and answered all the questions and needs that we had. More than recommended experience.
