Thank you and Andy for the [sea survival] course. It was not just learning but a great fun!
Great week with Andy – already booked to come back to do some more boat handling in January
Super course… super instruction… very friendly team… thoroughly enjoyed my whole experience of practical day skipper
Custard Pie was a wonderfully comfortable and great sailing Yacht. It also has the great advantage of Ashley who is a really good instructor. I would like to sail with him again if I have the good fortune.
What a great week milebuilding with Adam.
Yachts kept in tip top condition – much higher standard than other RYA schools I have sailed with.
[We] had such a great time last week, Lizzie and I enjoyed it so so much and both felt our sailing came on loads as well milebuilding in France
Thanks for education, Julia and me enjoyed. And Ovi was cool instructor.
Thanks for the wonderful week!, it was really great!
Thanks again for a wonderful week – I will be in touch to book Day Skipper later in the year!
Adam was a fantastic skipper and a perfect match for our group. Nothing but praise can be given.
[Richard is a] really nice person, focussing on each one’s needs. Showing his own expectations, but at the same adapting himself to everyone.
Andy was a very good and very patient teacher. first class.
Andy, you’re the best! Miss you guys already!
Exceeded my expectations. The boat was comfortable, the organisation efficient and professional.
Many thanks to all of your team for the great time and new experience on the boat Lucky Tarte. We enjoyed that week a lot.
Adam is a very good instructor nothing is a problem for him. We visited La Palma, La Gomera, Gran Canaria and Tenerife.
Alex was a very supportive instructor and I really enjoyed my week. Loved seeing the whales. Will definitely try to return. Thanks to everyone.
Great week – thanks so much to Andy for the expert tuition, I learnt so much
We had such a great time, enjoyed the company and the instruction. Obi has a very special gift and was able to explain many things that have been puzzling us for a while – thank you and him so much.
Thank you for professionalism and for making my program so easy to organise!
I enjoyed my time with you immensely and look forward to sailing with you again sometime.
Homewood Bound’s maiden voyage was successfully completed yesterday. Franco and Aidan were great – two wonderful ex [Fast Track] students of yours which do you credit. Good company too.
Great time last week on El Stan, thanks for everything.
Best in the business!
Thanks [to] both yourself and Andy for a great week, very enjoyable.
Can’t wait to get back and do some more sailing – I’ve been following the photos on FB and feeling jealous. I had such a great time in October, and it was such a de-stresser I’m still feeling the benefit. Hope you’re all still enjoying the sun and sea.
Richard is one of the greatest instructors I have ever met. Extremly sympathetic and skilled. And I think I know what an instructor has to be like, for I have been an instructor myself for 25 years for skydiving. Great thanks to to Richard.
I had a very nice sailing experience on the San Fernando with Alex. I found everything very professional organised and I certainly intend to come back.
Would like to come back and do diesel engine course. Boats lovely.
Just a quick email to thank both yourself and Andy for a great week, very enjoyable.
[Ashley is] A first class instructor with great skills all round
We greatly enjoyed our course and would gladly recommend the school to anyone.
Please pass on my sincere thanks to Andy for his excellent tuition in the Prep week
Many thanks – again – for your continued support, it is things like this that make your school stand out.
thanks for everything and I should be back sometime soon to do some sailing with you!!
We had an awesome experience learning with you.
The whole team at club yachting have been really good to me. Both you and Andy run the show at Club Yachting exceptionally well and I take my hat off to you both for the energy and time you put into everyone.
Really good hands-off instruction whilst being very attentive at the same time. Loads of friendly advice and sailing/boat handling tips and tricks. We learnt an awful lot in 6 days. Ovi is a real asset to your business. A most productive week for us and I would have no problem in recommending Club Yachting to others.
Just a note to thank Club Yachting, especially yourself and particularly Ovi for a most useful, enjoyable and instructive week. I shall be recommending CY to any who express an interest in upgrading their sailing skills and as mentioned, look forward to seeing you again soon.
Hi Janet, big thankyou to your company from the lads from Newcastle. We had a brilliant weeks sailing particularly with Annie as our instructor
Many thanks to you and all at Club Yachting for a fantastic week last week. Lovely boat and marinas, and everyone was so friendly and welcoming (especially Viva!). In particular I really appreciated the course being run over 6 days; it was still a busy week but made it far more manageable. Please also pass […]
A great, learnful and intense experience, a big thx to Richard, the best instructor ever, and the other crew..
