Under the deal, CSF can use the administration's facilities and nautical equipment to direct operations at the school. The club also gets €35,000 to coordinate, manage and maintain the site.

CSF also pledges to hire enough staff to develop the school's activities programme and provide cleaning.

Future site of water sports centre
The island's nautical sports centre (Centre d'Esports Nàutics, or CEN) is currently under construction. In the service of Formentera's nautical sector, the new facilities will include administrative and information areas, a training space and the new headquarters of the island's school for water sports.

Construction of the CEN will cost just over one million euros and is due for completion in six months.
