"RYA/MCA Yachtmaster Prep week. I spent 8 days on SeaWings's Bavaria 36 in Lisbon's bay area before successfully passing my YachtMaster offshore exam. Having sailed quite a lot in the past I still learned way more than expected in a very short time. Fabrice was a fantastic instructor able to pinpoint my weaknesses and make me work harder on those before the exam. In addition to his ability to quickly gauge our weaknesses and strengths, Fabrice made us discover many passages, harbours, channels and moorings in Lisbon's vicinity. My favourite was definitely Seixal, a hidden gem so close to Lisbon. Another important point was the fact that Fabrice keeps his groups very small in order to fully assess our abilities and help us in a very personal way. Finally, Fabrice's personality an humour made the atmosphere on board very friendly. I wish we could have stayed longer :) Thanks a lot Fabrice!!!" Eneour

"I completed my RYA Day Skipper practical with Fabrice in November in Lisbon on board Blue-Seven sailboat.
It was a great week from beginning to end where we learnt a lot and had a lot of fun. Marina drills, night sailing, sail trimming, MOB, pilotage, rules of the road all got thoroughly covered and lots more. I am not an experienced sailor so learning from someone like Fabrice, with his thousands of miles of sailing and thousands of hours of teaching meant that I was in the best hands to complete this important step in my sailing journey.
The crew also deserves a special mention as the week would have not been the same without that great atmosphere and laughs we had! I am sure this is something that repeats week after week among Fabrice’s apprentices and is a testament of Fabrice’s ability to bring together genuinely nice people and sea lovers.
Merci pour tout Fabrice et a tres bientot j’espere pour la prochaine etape!"
