New Record Number of Students in 2017...

header cartas

We open 2018 with reasons to celebrate.

While we are restarting to get out on the water we can already say that in 2017 we surpassed the 500 student barrier. This a more than 20% increase and, we want to believe, a result of 12 years of investment in our Team, facilities, boats and the effort that we put into receiving each of our students.

In the name of everyone at West Coast that worked hard in 2017 to reach this record level, I can only say thank you for choosing West Coast in 2017.

But 2017 was not only figures. We suported 15 new Yachtmasters to reach their professional qualifications. We were chosen by the Volvo Ocean Race teams to provide their crews with fundamental training. Crew of six out of the seven participating teams have completed at least 1 course with us at West Coast be it VHF, First Aid, Sea Survival, Powerboat or Yachtmaster Offshore. We are proud to have onboard the top portuguese sailors, to share the knowledge and keep learning from the best. It's also with great pride that every year we see more and more international students, from distant countries like Russia, Australia, China, Filipinas, Brasil, Argentina or Dubai choose Lisbon and West Coast to do their Sail and Powerboat training. More than 50% of our students are flying from abroad to meet us in Lisbon to enjoy the world class conditions the city provides all year around.

With such great news we have restarted the year with renewed energy to provide our students the best possible conditions to go sailing or powerboating, on the water or in class, either you are a reacreational boater or  a future professional of the industry.

Welcome aboard 2018, we hope also be able to welcome onboard one of our training boats for some fun on the water !
