Water sports centre grows in stature in Playa San Juan
The Municipal School of Water Sports at Playa San Juan is proving an outstanding success.
In the last three years alone, around 1,000 people have registered in the different disciplines offered. These include diving baptisms for schools, summer camps, Christmas and Easter camps, two annual regattas, courses and activities for adults.
Guia de Isora’s councillor for sports, José Rivero said the school offered training as well as fun. This includes first aid and professional maritime training.
This year, the centre also became headquarters for the Tenerife Laser Training Camp, an initiative introduced by Tenerife Nautical Activities in collaboration with Tenerife Olympic sailor, Javier Hernández Cebrián.
The Mayor, Pedro Martín said the school had opened up the sea to residents and he regretted there were few other establishments of this kind in the Canaries, other than private ones.
The ADT is located at the entrance to the fishing harbour at Playa San Juan and has steadily expanded since its official opening in 2003.
