The teaching team

The local leader: Maxime is the manager of the functioning of the sailing school. He runs the theoretical and practical organisation of the lessons, monitors the security of the students while on water, handles the maintenance of the different equipment during the year, hires and monitors the instructors.

He is assisted by Chloé, apprentice BP JEPS Voile in cooperative training course at Bordeaux Lac.
