He will tailor tuition to fit the needs of the individual so that you can learn to sail at a pace that suits you. As one of the few instructors to attain the coveted Yachtmaster Ocean qualification, he is able to teach all levels of courses – from the complete beginner who wants to learn to sail, to the returner to sailing who has gained a knowledge of sailing in a past life, therefore, you do not need to choose your level of course in advance if you are not sure of your current sailing ability! For those clients who are looking for that little bit extra whilst they learn to sail, and who wish to learn on a small group basis with family or friends, we offer an exclusive package for 2 or 3 people. Whilst our standard of tuition and personal service will always remain the same, these packages offer individual cabin usage, and are available for a maximum of 3 persons, booked as a group. Our hugely successful RYA Navigational Theory Courses are operated via distance learning packages, available in Windows or Mac format, supplied by Ocean Training, with easy to follow step by step instruction with lots of animation and graphics.
