  1. Raul

    After one day of theory in the class room, I spent 3 days practicing several maneuvers on the powerboat. Ricardo has a vast sailing and powerboat experience and was a great teacher, explaining everything very thoroughly. Also the course materials are comprehensive, very well structured and easy to understand. I would not want to ride a boat in the Ria Formosa without the insights and knowledge I gained from the course. Thank you very much Ricardo!
