This course combines two extraordinary places making this experience something unique.

The first days the participants will enjoy a week-long journey on board the Cervantes Saavedra through the waters of Formentera.

The ship, with a length of almost 50 metres, has capacity for 30 passengers and cabins equipped with all the comforts, air conditioning and a separate bathroom.

They will learn aspects of marine biology, how to tie sailor’s knots, how to handle the boat’s sails and how to use navigation charts. All this in an environment where they will with develop social skills and leadership.

Once the adventure in the Mediterranean is over, the students will move to Madrid, to SEK-El Castillo, which has a wonderful 40,0000m2 campus with modern learning spaces and extensive sports facilities. There they will work on the development of some of the SEK Education Group skills while enjoying their favourite sports.
