Would like to come back and do diesel engine course. Boats lovely.
16/6/15Many 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 on my thanks to Richard. I found his teaching incredibly clear and helpful, and I’m amazed by how much I feel I learnt in only a week. And in spite of how much there was to cover, throughout the week our boat was always relaxed and happy – I very much appreciated how Richard always kept the atmosphere stress-free and always seemed happy to answer questions and explain things, and to make the most of the weather and get in some good sailing when the wind obliged. All in all it was a great week, so many thanks again to you all.

[Richard is a] really nice person, focussing on each one’s needs. Showing his own expectations, but at the same adapting himself to everyone.
12/10/2014Can’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.

Andy was a very good and very patient teacher. first class.

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 enjoyed my time with you immensely and look forward to sailing with you again sometime.
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.
