I have to write to say thank you very much for my 2 grandchildren in passing their RYA-2 course last week.
Although they were a little apprehensive to start with, your 2 instructors Maddie & Chad were excellent and soon had them participating and learning in such a caring and proficient way. I am most impressed that for the 2nd year the quality of your staff is impressive.

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.

Mrs Perry

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.
