Although our primary objective was to gain the ICC certificate so that we can charter in the Med etc, we also knew that we would benefit from some formal sailing instruction and all came away feeling a lot more confident after two days with you.
Just a note of thanks to you for organising the sailing course and the use of the yacht with Rick. It was a really good course and I enjoyed it thoroughly. Following on immediately from the theory course was a good idea. Both taken together has increased my level of confidence, even leaving me with the feeling that I need a bigger boat!
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.
I really enjoyed the course and appreciate how much you helped.
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.
The sailing experience with Wendy was great. She was very patient with her explanations and responsive to individual needs. Certainly a confidence booster and I would like to be taught by her again

Just like to say Thank you for arranging the Ladies Day, Wendy is a brilliant instructor and we all got on very well and all enjoyed it very much

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
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
I had a great week, thanks for your support and guidance.
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.
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.
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
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.
