I just wanted to say how impressed with the RYA 1 and RYA 2 course our son completed a couple of weeks ago. My husband is a sailor and knows his stuff and he thought the course was excellent. We particularly wanted to single out one of your staff members – Tom – who was amazing.

I am writing on behalf of the parents whose children attended a first time sailing session on ‘The Lagoon’ . They all had such an excellent experience that we wanted to write to congratulate you on the service we all had. The children had a 2 hour session with Ben and Isaac, and as well as giving the children a fantastic lesson, in pretty windy conditions, Ben and Issac provided an informative and fun time, as well as promoting confidence.
