Simon is a first rate skipper , a first rate teacher and a first rate human being. He made the course fun , exciting and I learned more than any other course I have been on with RYA. It’s quite a skill to teach and Simon has that skill. He fills the student with confidence. His knowledge of sailing is amazing and unlike many who teach he is not frightened of sharing that knowledge. His boat is spotless and a joy to sail. All in all I cannot recommend him enough to beginners and also those who think they know the sea ! I will be booking with him again.

A fantastic five day experience and Wings is the perfect boat for learning on. Robin is such an amazing instructor with so much knowledge of every aspect of sailing and I really appreciate him for his calmness , patience and advice regarding our recently purchased yacht.
Thank you from an extremely happy student.

Keith made the Day Skipper course interesting, informative and fun, particularly in some of the challenging conditions we had through the week F5-6 most days. He was very good at explaining things in different ways. I also appreciated the efforts to provision for L who’s lactose intolerant. Thanks very much for a great 5 days.

Simon was a great instructor. Very considerate to individuals’ previous knowledge and experiences. Very attentive to our questions and answered them well. Made learning very easy and enjoyable. Was good to explain any technical information in a clear and understandable manner. We all got plenty of opportunities to practice all elements of sailing. Wings is a very clean and comfortable boat to be on as well as easy to manoeuvre. Accommodation was very comfortable with good food being served, taking into consideration any dietary requirements. We all had a really fun and enjoyable experience. Will definitely be coming back to do future courses and leisurely sails. Thank you!!
