    The instructor was very thorough, passionate and considerate toward our learning structure and objectives.
    It was much more intense and in-depth than anticipated.
    Comforting to know the difficult standards for sailors navigating our waters.
    Palma Sea School have very good standards.

    The instructor was very friendly and explained things in a very clear and easiest way to understand.
    Our instructor knew how to jump between hard concepts and easier ones to not make the course too heavy.
