Silvia Lo Castro and Lorenzo Lapini

Lorenzo and I completed a five-day sailing course on our boat with Fabrice. For Lorenzo, it was a course to obtain the day skipper certificate, while for me, it was for the competent crew certificate.
Despite the different needs and skills between Lorenzo and me, Fabrice managed to guide both of us excellently, catering to each person's requirements without sacrificing those of the other. The course covered a range of topics, from theoretical knowledge (such as radar, navigation, and chartwork) to more practical aspects (including basic navigation elements, marina maneuvers, the man overboard scenario, fine-tuning, night sailing, and more).
Fabrice was always available to explain and re-explain when necessary. In addition to knowing sailing like the back of his hand, he is particularly skilled at teaching it: he never raises his voice, is patient and kind, humorous, and capable of making students feel at ease, if not even fostering a great rapport with them.
This course not only clarified and unveiled many aspects of sailing for us but also enriched us on a personal level. Fabrice exemplifies how an instructor (or anyone encountered in a “professional” setting) is not limited to their role but remains, above all, a person with whom, as in his case, you can have enriching conversations and form friendships.

 I chose Seawings to pursue a few of my RYA licenses. I completed my RYA Coastal Skipper training, as well as RYA Yachtmaster Coastal prep with Fabrice and I could not recommend both more. Fabrice teaches in English and speaks French and Portugues.

Fabrice was very accommodating of any questions and doubts I had along the courses, and made sure we could practice where I struggled most. We reviewed the entire syllabus of the course throughout the prep days, and I felt much more confident for the exam weekend.
Fabrice is a very experienced sailing instructor, and I have recommended him and SeaWings to friends of mine and will continue to do so. I will always reach out to Fabrice for my future sailing instructions!
Thank you Fabrice.

Je me suis lancé dans l’aventure Yachtmaster offshore avec SeaWings à Lisbon, Portugal. Fabrice m’a suivi du Competent Crew jusqu’à la réussite de l’examen Yachtmaster Sail en passant par les formations annexes du Radar et power boat level 2. Toujours disponible, investit et arrangeant il a fait preuve de beaucoup de pédagogie et de patience. Lisbonne est un super spot pour apprendre la voile, courant, balisage, trafic… tout est réunis et un petit plus pour la beauté du paysage.

Un très beau moment de vie, partagé avec les autres candidats, sous la houlette de Fabrice. Ce dernier, armé de sa bienveillance innée, a su nous pousser dans nos retranchements et nous préparer aux aléas de l'examen. Il faut arriver à Lisbonne le plus entrainé possible, pour pouvoir profiter au maximum de cette formation.
Naturellement, tu as su lire les capacités et les difficultés de chacun et mettre le doigt là où le bât blesse, mais toujours en finesse. Ton humilité est un plaisir, chapeau l'artiste. 
"Un bon marin est celui qui se souvient des mots - in english, de préférence -. Un bon capitaine un être indulgent (merci Fab)." (S.Tesson)
