Don't take our word for it! Hear about what it was like from a mother and coach's perspective!

Tomás Ruiz de Luque

 

Optimist Coach

 

“De mi parte ha sido una grata experiencia, en la cual el intercambio cultural, las nuevas amistades y el vinculo que todos tenemos en común, que es el amor por la vela, ha resultado una combinacion genial!  ”

 

"For me it has been a pleasing experience in which the cultural exchange, new friendships and the bond that we all have in common, the love for sailing, has resulted in a fantastic combination"

Natalía Codina

Mother of two Catalan sailors



“Todo salió perfecto: la familia fue muy acogedora y mis hijas crearon un bonito vínculo con ellos y por supuesto nosotros también. El nivel de inglés ha mejorado muchísimo y de una forma atractiva ha pasado de ser una materia a ser parte de ellas."

 

"Everything went perfect: the host family was very welcoming and my girls formed a very nice bond with them. The level of English improved a lot and one interesting thing is that it has become part of who they are."

Pepi Zaragoza

Mother of one Catalan sailor

 

"Las familias que lo han acogido como si estuviera en casa, Lo han llevado de viaje, a comer, a tomar helados, al los karts, y sobretodoa navegar. Ha vivido intensamente estas 3 semanas, son todos estupendos y los esperamos aquí."

 

“The host families made my son feel like he was in his own house. They took him on trips (New York, Washington D.C.), out to eat, out for ice cream, go-carting and above all sailing. The [American] children treated our sailors like friends from the very first day. It was three intense but stupendous weeks and we look forward to having them here (Barcelona)."
