My partner booked a introduction to sailing weekend as a present for me, having never been on a sail boat before. The course ran from Friday evening to Sunday, 2 nights on the boat and 2 days sailing. I did not know what to expect, but I found the whole experience very rewarding and informative. There were 4 on the course, the other 3 had sailed before so I initially thought I would be out of my depth. Roland the instructor had a very good teaching style that got everyone involved and hands on, not just practical experience but informative theory, weather reports, chart reading etc, I came away having learnt far more than I was expecting which I can honestly say was a very enjoyable weekend. I’m hoping to be back for a weeks course next time and looking to take my Competent Crew Course. Jon Ward – RYA Start Yachting – June 2019
