Excellent, for Alfonso's dedication to making everything comfortable, for his mastery and for his very didactic way of transmitting knowledge. To repeat many times.

Gorgeous day in the swamp. Queco, the instructor, was perfect; both in his theoretical explanations and his instructions already on the ship. 100% recommended.

The crossing through the San Juan reservoir was very good. Anfonso very didactic and explaining at all times the maneuvers, wind situation, tricks and others. Highly recommended, I will definitely repeat. Thanks for everything.

After a more detailed explanation (perhaps the time we spent in the classroom could be reduced and part of the "agenda" to see it directly on the boat) of the documentation that had been sent to us a couple of days before by email (this gave us time to read it and that everything sounded to us), we went to the boat to practice what we had seen theoretically.

Good atmosphere generated by the instructor (Queco), who explained in a simple and enjoyable way each maneuver to perform, and why. Very well also with the rest of the participants.

A pity that there was little wind and we were wanting more.

A good experience that I will certainly repeat!

Windless day. Alfonso took the opportunity to teach us how to mount and dismount the jib. Mooring work with ropes in the cleats, use of the gaff and coordination of the team. Directions and maneuvers. We have learned a lot even though the day did not go well.
Alfonso is a good teacher who cares that the students learn
