  1. Francisco Javier Ruiz Mirete

    Excellent experience with Escola Port. You can feel the passion of the instructors both at school and on the boat in helping students achieve their goals.

  2. Rodrigo Peluffo

    Everything was very well organized and we had a great time. The instructor Gonzalo is a genius and that makes learning a lot easier. I had done my PER at another school and now I see that I should have changed to this school from the beginning.

  3. Mark

    10/10, Gonzalo is a great instructor with whom we have been able to have a very good introduction to high altitude navigation.

  4. Anna

Este fin de semana hemos hecho las prácticas de vela y la verdad es que ha sido una experiencia totalmente recomendable. Desde las embarcaciones hasta los instructores. Todo súper bien organizado. Gracias a Charly con la introducción que hicimos con el j80 , y por supuesto a Emi con el Deneb, que no paró de explicar y de hacernos practicar hasta que saliera todo perfecto. Gran implicación. Nos apuntaremos al club de navegación de Escola Port para ir practicando y perfeccionando los conocimientos. Un saludo.
