The family sailing weekend was fantastic and I can’t wait to join Pembrokeshire Cruising on the water again in 2021. Edryd Vaughan RYA Start Yachting 2020

The family sailing weekend was fantastic

Our Instructor Dave is a legend, he put in so much effort to ensure the whole family got as much out of the week as possible (without pushing anyone too hard) and gave us so much of his time, he was brilliant with our kids and with us. Nikki was fantastic in organising everything and we were reassured by the Covid measures in place which were excellent. The experience feels like it can’t possibly only have been 5 days, we all learned so much! A pint at Dale with the boat on the pontoon, tendering to the beach with the kids, swimming off the boat and learning the basics of sailing! Formative memories for my kids (and probably for us too!) As Dave said, at nine minutes past eleven on Monday the 14th of September 2020 my life changed forever! We will be back…  Will Franklin and family – Family Sailing Holiday 2020

Roland really tailored the Yachtmaster Preparation week specifically to the needs of the students. I felt comfortable to ask any question, and to discuss any point in greater detail. He really got us working together as a team to complete tasks efficiently. Brilliant week. It’s really relevant to do training there in the Pembrokeshire waterways.

Yachtmaster Success!

Instructors and support staff are all very helpful, responsive and professional. The Yachtmaster theory course (I took the online course was backed up with detailed and rapid responses to all questions and concerns, explanations of any difficulties were delivered immediately and with clarity. The practical preparation course was delivered with careful and demanding oversight, but was also aimed at confidence building which it was very successful at. Great time. Delivered with serious intent to train to a high standard of sailing competence. Safe boat handling under all tide, sea and weather conditions are emphasised and paramount in the course which is delivered with a very effective focus on confidence building. As well as training with Pembrokeshire Cruising, I have been one a cruise with them to the Scillies which was excellent. I have also chartered (bare boat) yachts from them for leisure sailing and that has always been a straightforward and pleasant experience with well maintained boats.

Yachtmaster Success!

It was great fun, despite the weather (which obviously you can’t control) and I learned a lot. I hope to be back to get some more practice and experience and to do Day Skipper. Thanks Simon Dixon – RYA Competent Crew – October 2019

It was great fun

I was very pleased to have the opportunity to try most skills required for sailing again. Roland was a patient and excellent tutor. I wish I had made more notes… t was a lovely relaxed learning weekend for me and not working for a certificate at the end of it but as a refresher made it even better. Roland was a very thorough and patient instructor and made the weekend very enjoyable and useful. Jane Mason – Day Skipper Refresher Skills Training – October 2019

Roland was a very thorough and patient instructor

I thoroughly enjoyed the course, given the challenging weather conditions, which was just what I needed to give me confidence back at the helm. The level of instruction was excellent, with a relaxed atmosphere ensuring that information was passed in an effective manner. My brain was frazzled by the end of the week and I have learnt so much. Thank you! Dave Martin – RYA Day Skipper – September 2019

The level of instruction was excellent

Really enjoyed the whole 5 days. I felt that everything was well organised and thought through so difficult to add anything. Good fun, tiring and challenging. Really enjoyed every minute of it. Andy Strzelecki – RYA Day Skipper – October 2019

Really enjoyed every minute of it

Both instructors I have had Steve and Dave have been extremely professional, knowledgeable and dedicated to maximising our learning and sailing time on the course (including putting in some long days). I got so much out of both my courses. Thank you! John Monk – Refresher Skills Training & RYA Day Skipper – September 2019
