“We all had a brilliant time – it reminded me of how lovely and relaxing it is to be on the water.”

Did my RYA Coastal Skipper Practical. I was very impressed with the organisation. The boat was fantastic and the standard of instruction was really excellent. Simon has obviously been instructing for a long time and his easygoing and calm attitude really made a difference. We had a good mix of crew, from Day Skipper to Competent crew. I’ve been sailing for a number of years and this course really gave me a lot of insight into the practicalities of skippering. Sailing in the Thames Estuary gives you lots of opportunities to put into practical use the theory you worked so hard on. Great course, great boat and great instructor.


Coastal Skipper Feedback

Thank you very much for running such an excellent course. It was really good shaking out some of the rust from past knowledge and I feel really inspired to do the Day Skipper course

“Hi Simon

Just a quick note to say thank you so much for our great sailing afternoon. We all enjoyed it and will definately be back in touch to book another sail. Charlie loved helping on the ropes, Millie felt very much at home – sleeping 80% of it and Daisy loved playing captain. Guy just adores the sea and as for me, I’ve now got over my phobia of boats!!

We all agreed it was a fantastic way to spend an afternoon, made all the more pleasurable by your hospitality and guidance.

Happy sailing and best wishes”

John and his family had booked a bareboat charter in the Caribbean. They wanted to brush up on their skills before flying out.

“Hi Simon. We had a great time with you on Emma. It was very helpful to get us all together and refresh our skills before setting off for Tortola. Our boat handling confidence was much higher.

Thank you.”

Excuse me madam, can someone else have a go at the helm?


“Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for the most fantastic days’ sailing last week. Bruce is totally converted and has talked of little else since!! As you may have noticed, I was happy as a clam all day!
Will promote your business to anyone who stands still for long enough!
Again very many thanks.”
