Foto nens escola de vela 2017The Council's office of fitness reports that Tuesday, May 15, marks the start of registration for summer learning at the island's sailing school. Construction of the island's new nautical sports centre and sailing school (known officially as Centre d'Esports Nàutics and Escola de Vela, respectively) is still underway. Meanwhile, summer classes will take place at the provisional facilities located at the juncture of carrer s'Almadrava and the road leading to the mouth of s'Estany des Peix.

From June 25 to August 31, groups of eight will attend classes in the form of two-week sessions—from 9.00am to 11.30am, 11.30am to 2.00pm or 5.00pm to 7.30pm. Four levels will be offered for distinct levels of experience. Plus, a bateig group (for “baptism”, or beginners) will accommodate children with absolutely no prior experience. Students will choose between sailing and windsurfing. For the first time ever, this year, seasoned athletes will have the opportunity to form regatta teams. Each course costs €100 and reductions are available.

€35,000 deal with Formentera's surf club
The Council came to an agreement with Club Surf Formentera regarding the management of the sailing school and classes this summer. The club will oversee hiring and operations, while the Council will retain responsibility for the school's administration. The biggest donors to the summer course programme are Trasmpai and Marina Formentera.

Complete information about activities at the school and how to register is available at the Antoni Blanc fitness centre and
