Students enjoyed our first course of the year in March, a 5 day RYA Coastal Skipper Practical course with Rick our experienced instructor. The week consisted of managing some strong easterly winds and an excilerating trip to Prawle Point and beyond. Lots of linking the RYA shorebased Yachtmaster course to the practical Coastal Skipper. Bob commented, “Just a note of thanks for organising the course, I enjoyed it thoroughly. Following on immediately from the theory course was a good idea. Both taken together has increased my level on confidence, even leaving me with the feeling that I need a bigger boat!.
