I was initially very nervous but was soon put at ease and can’t believe how much I learnt. I had a great week and am so glad I took the course. Lorraine Wright Competent Crew March 2018

Well worth the time and effort. Instructor to student ratio means that all students get the best from instructor time. Really enjoyable course and very good value. Keep on as you are! Fantastic sailing, great course, and excellent instructor. I had a marvellous time. Thanks. Bob Lineker Day Skipper March 2018

Roland has a great way of explaining very simple things. J Hancock Day Skipper March 2018

Roland has a great way of explaining very simple things.

The relaxed instruction was refreshing and highly productive. Running through skills at the marina prior to being out on the open water was an excellent idea. It meant that when the main sail / reefing was conducted everyone knew what to expect. I felt no pressure to ‘get it right first time’ and this helped the learning process. The instructor’s knowledge was immense, and he spent time giving clear (and when necessary) in depth answers to questions. The refresher course gave me the confidence I wanted. The Day Skipper course is intensive, and it can be difficult to retain all the knowledge, especially without enough follow-on practice. Well worth attending. Thank you!  Carey Freeman Day Skipper Refresher Weekend February 2018

Excellent. This must be the most fun we have had for years learning how to do something new – the weather made it even more so – solid boat, excellent wet weather gear and kit, tasty grub, good shipmates and top skipper. Afraid we may have caught the sailing bug and it is all your fault. Hope we can go to the Scillies with you in 2018. Difficult to criticise anything at all. Howard & Juliet Rutherford.

Having 2 different instructors over the 3 weekend worked well as we had more varied instruction and different points of views. Overall the course was excellent and we learned a lot. We followed up with a Greek flotilla holiday which worked out really well. Thanks. Great course keep as it is. Paul, Sally & James Thomas RYA Day Skipper September 2017

Overall the course was excellent

A splendid experience enhanced by excellent technical knowledge and experience. This is enhanced by a very effective approach to the pedagogical aspects of the course allowing continuous iterative learning within a challenging yet supportive environment. As before, the food prepared was a delight. Instruction was exemplary and thoughtful. I would keep it just as it is. Richard Hester ICC September 2017

Instruction was exemplary and thoughtful

Martin made the course not only very informative but also managed to bring in a good balance of fun and humour to the week. I can not praise him highly enough for the way he conducted the course. Thank you. Liza Wright RYA Competent Crew September 2017

I can not praise my instructor highly enough

The weekend was a highlight of my year sailing. I thought it may be stressful with an overload of information, but it was a very pleasant experience which gave me all the information and tuition I was looking for and I felt like I had a holiday too. Thank you so much. I had a great weekend and learnt so much. I have no criticism in any way as I learnt far more than I expected. The company was first class too!! Thank you.
