What others say about us

Scott Allen

The cruise track was great, the lessons were very useful and the fellow crew/students will be good friends going forward. The layout of the course was perfect – we learned all the skills necessary for our certification with the ever helpful Instructor and there was enough downtime for us to see the beautiful Grenadine Islands. Cheers!

It was a generous trip because all food was provided for (bar 3 meals we had onshore) and there was an all-inclusive feel to the trip, which was an excellent value. It was a great place to make friends, put worries behind and explore a whole new world of sailing. Thank you for a wonderful week!

We had a fantastic time. Couldn’t believe that we could learn so much, in such a beautiful part of the World, for the price. Fantastic!
