Thank you again for talking us through all that sailing, working at our skills and letting us take part in your life-long experience! I will keep those days in best memory!


Just a quick message to say thanks again for the Learn to Sail course. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and feel I learned loads – although there’s still quite a bit to go, I know! The “river of wind” makes it much easier to understand, so keep going with that! Needless to say, I’m now keen to get back out onto the water.


Mike and Sheryl have enjoyed a lifetime of sailing. They have sailed and operated many different types of boats from trailer sailors through to ocean going yachts. They have an extensive knowledge base to call upon for safe and pleasurable sailing and cruising.
