What we do

Club School

We are a non-profit organization that aims to educate integral children and young people by using the practice of water sports as a tool.

Since its establishment in 2014, we have formed more than 500 students between the ages of 7 and 18, who have learned not only to sail and kayaking, but also to overcome obstacles, work as a team and, especially, to dream.
