  2. Vinny M.

    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.

  3. Pierre M.

    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.
