Roland is very experienced and knowledgeable, he was able to impart that knowledge in a manner that was easy to understand and both empathetic to all the students on the course as we were of mixed abilities. Terry Reynolds – ICC – September 2019

5 Star

Roland, Nikki and the team are awesome. I thoroughly enjoyed my RYA Competent Crew and RYA Day Skipper Theory and Practical training with you guys!  It takes some doing to make a rainy sail enjoyable! I look forward to doing an Adventure Cruise to Ireland or the Scillies with you! Jamie Haywood – RYA Competent Crew & Day Skipper – September 2019

A great experience, learnt a great deal, our trainer Steve was very professional and made everyone feel welcome aboard. Tracey Howells – RYA Competent Crew – August 2019

Steve was very professional and made everyone feel welcome aboard

We had an excellent week on the course. For content and delivery of the course we couldn’t have asked for more. Our tutor Nick was unfailingly polite, patient, caring and good humoured. Hard to say how that side could have been improved. As a group of total novices we had no idea what to expect. The 5 day course opened up a whole new world! We found it exciting, exhilarating, challenging and exhausting. We both agree that its been the best holiday we’ve had together for years. Paul & Lorraine Lamdin – RYA Competent Crew – August 2019

The best holiday we’ve had together for years

Just keep doing what you do. We had a fantastic experience, this is endorsed by enrolling in the day skipper theory with you. On successful completion I will book the practical assessment with you also. Thank you for taking care of us Initially, having never sailed before we found the Competent crew course to be a step learning course with an instructor who demanded the best from his students. As the week progressed, we all , as a new crew became more proficient and understood what was expected of each of us.
It was an immensely rewarding and enjoyable 5 days that we will remember always. Steve Lewis – RYA Competent Crew – August 2019

It was an immensely rewarding and enjoyable

As it was my first course I have nothing to compare to but felt it was overall a great experience. The course met my test of helping me decide if I wanted to pursue the learning further and in which direction. I thought all course members worked well together and we enjoyed each others company when working and relaxing. Alan Bench – RYA Start Yachting – August 2019

Overall a great experience

The weekend not only met but exceeded my expectations for the weekend. Many thanks – Michael Warmington – RYA Start Yachting – August 2019

Exceeded my expectations

Already recommended to friends and crew members! David Jones – ICC – August 2019

This is my second training with Pembrokeshire Cruising first Start Yachting and now Competent crew. Having been a professional mariner for 44 years in the Merchant Navy and have attended many training courses and being a trainer myself I cannot fault the training experience at Pembrokeshire Cruising. In five days we covered over 100 miles completed 4 hours night sailing and even went out on a very windy day and actually used the yachts full reefing system and storm jib a great experience. Most importantly from stepping on board until I completed the 5 day course SAFETY was the number one topic and the Company can be very proud of that fact. Excellent 5 days training.
