The Ladies’ Day was a great chance to brush up on my boat handling skills, and it was lovely to meet some of the other women who have berths here at Sutton Harbour. Wendy was a brilliant trainer and all the staff at Sutton Harbour were all very welcoming – I’ll certainly be keeping an eye out for future Active Marina events to take part in.
Many thanks for sending my Day Skipper ticket – now just get my boat back in the water and all will be good. I look forward to clocking up some miles now so that I can gain the experience to come back to you for my Yachtmaster tickets. Probably spring next year all being well.
We would like to thank you for the very useful own boat tuition we received at Sutton Marina on Saturday 20th June aboard our Dufour 2800, all the advise and patience were very much appreciated, we immediately took a buoy for the first time to take lunch the next day (and made it first time too). The locking and berth mooring – with our own arrangements – was especially useful and so far at least the same manoeuvres have gone very well since. It was very good throughout. Tom
Thank you for giving me such a sound basis for crewing – and making it such good fun – it was an empowering time I learned a tremendous amount in a hugely enjoyable way. Since then we have had hugely enjoyable and successful first proper sailing time on our own yacht. R
Day Skipper Practical and Own Boat tuition – Thanks again for sorting out the training. Alex and Jim were excellent trainers and I really enjoyed the course.…..I successfully sailed my boat the 202 miles to Wales last week. We had a F6 gusting F7 on Saturday which forced us to stay in Fowey until Monday after which is was blue sky’s and SE winds all the way to Milford Haven where we arrived Wednesday lunchtime. The trip was amazing and we even had a large pod of dolphins riding our bow wave for 40 mins. Regards Ian May 16
Great sailing afternoon – a real confidence booster!
I really enjoyed the course and appreciate how much you helped.
Hi Wendy, Just a note to say thank you for a very informative and instructive day – and a good lunch. Regards Rosemary May 16
Feeling very happy to have passed my day skipper and am now busy planning our trip around the islands! Thank you for teaching us so well. After 5 days on Gundulph my confidence has greatly improved.
Many thanks for last Sunday afternoon. I’d really like to do some more with you so I’ll digest this and look at my diary
I had a great week, thanks for your support and guidance.
I am over the moon that I have now passed my Yachtmaster Exam. Thanks for all your help and being so accommodated. Great instructors highly recommended! Now looking forward to sailing my boat.
Just a note to thank you for the wonderful experience day I had with you & I wish you well with Start Point Sail West
Rick, Just wanted to say ‘thank you’ for your efforts of instructing on our recent course. Your enthusiasm and energy shon.. you hosted (all those ‘bites in the oven’ etc) well. I feel that I am improving all the time and the course bolsters this and increases confidence. Ken.
Our instructor managed a group of people with differing levels of experience, all our objectives were achieved and the navigation passages completed as planned.
