I enjoyed 40 hours of sailing lessons with Ferdinand Hofer, a pleasant young Austrian, at Laguna de Apoyo in Nicaragua. He taught me on a very nice 16-foot boat. He is an expert, experienced sailor and an excellent teacher. I am a beginning sailor, and he was extremely patient. The setting was wonderful, and that alone made the lessons worthwhile. Ferdinand's school is located on Lake Nicaragua, and he would be a fabulous choice for either lessons or a tour of the lake and the islands there. I unreservedly recommend his services.

i met francisco or chico yesterday for a great, great, PERFECT day on the water. yes, it rained a bit, yes, my gringo butt got a bit burned, but it was amazing. francisco shared the people he knew, the topics he cared about, the stuff he was interested in, and most of all made me feel comfortable. we went out for 6 hours and it was amazing. watching local fishermen catch their goods, passing tranquillo islands and most of all, just paddling for as long as wanted. it was great. Velago is a great business, in a re-emerging Central American spot, with wonderful locals. I won't forget this trip for a long time.

Ferdinand is very knowledgeable and fun to learn from. I sailed with him on Laguna de Apoyo for my first sailing experience. He taught me a lot, was patient, and friendly. The lake and the crater were even more beautiful from on the water. Get a friend and take a lesson or just go sailing!

While visiting Granada we decided to take sailing lessons since this is something we wanted to learn. We went out for three hours and the lesson was great. He was patient with us and we worked on moves over and over until we understood it.
