Janet and Andy run a lovely RYA sailing school in Las Galletas. They maintain the RYA standard very well. They went above and beyond to assist me with all manner of affairs during my time in Las Galletas. A large portion of the reason I passed my Yachtmaster is that we were lucky enough to have Andy (the very capable and patient owner) as our instructor for the prep week week portion, although from what I’ve seen the other instructors are excellent as well. Viva is great. I highly recommend this school for anyone in the Med/Carib area that is looking for an Offshore qualification in TIDAL waters – better (and I think slightly more reputable) of a location than Lauderdale or South Africa. Far more reasonably priced than either of these locations as well . Very pleased

I would like to recommend yachting school Club Yachting and its instructors as the most competent and responsible in their profession. Separately I would like to note the school’s Director, Mr. Andy Williams, as the most professional sailor and dedicated person. And to Express his admiration for the work of Yachtmaster Instructors Mr. Richard van der Wines and Mr. Andrew Raikova. I think special thanks should work Ms. Janet as a great organizer and General Manager. I hope to continue in this school for my education. Sincerely, Sergey A. Yurkevich

I’d like to say how much I enjoyed the Club Yachting experience. Your expert tutorial added so much to the information I’d gleaned from the online course I did and filled in a number of important gaps, and Andy’s discourse on Weather did much to dispel the mystery that surrounds that black art. Thank you both.
My week aboard Custard Pie was an experience I shall never forget – an absolute blast! I found Ashley an excellent instructor, patient and informative, and able to bring out the best in folk – even in me – and his yacht is just a dream. I really can’t thank him enough.
As to pictures, Janet, I’m afraid I had no camera with me (must’ve left it in the pub) and my old phone simply allows me to make calls or text: it has no games, no camera, no emails nor any of those features that make life such a technological nightmare.
However, I do have many happy memories and thank you all for the hard work and effort you obviously expend to make things as enjoyable as they were. Thank you.
Sincerely,
Roy

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.

Superb. Your instructors handled my retraining with, patience, gusto and confidence. I learned more with you than, shall we say previously [elsewhere]… 
Having everything covered off before you travel is comforting, to find they are as you imagined when you arrive wonderful.
You are made to feel at home and a part of Club Yachting the moment you arrive and continuously from then on, a super experience!

Just two weeks ago I finished my Yachtmaster Fast track course. So, sixteen weeks passed like one day. It was incredible time and best adventure in my life. It was hard, but fun and safe at the same time. I visited different islands, crossed the Atlantic ocean and through Gibraltar and the Mediterranean sea and reached France on board the legendary El Stan. I would like to say many thanks to all instructors of Club Yachting Seaschool, especially to Richard, my best dutch friend, Ashley, my best english friend, Ovi, my best venezuelan friend, and Aden, my best irish friend. I’m proud of being these guys’ student. We were like team and family. I have to say so many thanks to Janet and Andy for organisation and management of my Fast track course. I was very happy and I’m still happy to be the part of this school. I miss you Club Yachting and I’ll be back soon.

I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the week sailing in the South of France with Andy, Louis and Peter and Di. Andy was an excellent instructor and the week really helped to build my confidence as well as being a good refresher on some of the basics. We had some really good sailing days. El Stan is a brilliant yacht and lovely to sail in (even in 40 knots plus gusts of wind!) Andy also fed us extremely well and produced some amazing meals – including a barbecue on board when we were moored up just outside Cassis. I would love to come back and sail with clubyachting again – what’s the best way to keep up to date with your courses and what’s on?
