The Gruppe Nordsee (Group North Sea) was the naval contingent of the Legion Condor and its primary mission was to train the nationalist forces.

It also established a school for naval officers commanded by Kapitänleutnant Rolf Rüggeberg and with twelve German NCOs among the instructors. Rüggeberg remained as commander of the school after the civil war ended and did not leave until June 1940.
