Mom: My 12 year old son attended Escuela Nautica Marbella one week sailing class leaving from puerto pescero. The teachers are great fun, professional and the kids learned while sailing making cocktails, singing, dancing. My son felt comfortable with all the kids and teachers and loved those camps. He was not fluent in Spanish but never felt left out. Grade:

My two boys took a 4 day course on a cruiser boat (Bénéteau 42 footer)
this past month. HIGHLY recommendable. The two grown-ups running the
course, Paco and Frankie, are father and son, both nautical academy
teachers (I attended their 3 month course to get my PER).
The kids had a blast. They learned the basics of sailing, including knots, boat parts, security (Man overboard maneuvers, etc), taking bearings with compass and sextant, as well as different dance moves and cocktail mixes (virgin, of course!). But best of all, (an unexpected freebie...), my kids came back with the best attitude, positive, communicative, and better-mannered than I had left them!
Both instructors, apart from being amazing professionals, are great teachers, and certainly know the perfect balance of discipline, love and that mystery ingredient that makes the kids listen and enjoy every aspect of the experience. Grade: 10
