If you’re thinking of getting started / brushing up / or taking it all the way I couldn’t recommend Rock Sailing enough. Fantastic team of instructors we were privileged to have Gav, Simon & Ian to put us through our paces. It’s incredible how much information you pick up in such a short time. Peter & Carrie are so helpful and are always on hand to offer assistance. ROCK SAILING is not just a business they have a passion for sailing. My wife and I learned so much about ourselves in the process. Thanks for everything the tears and cheers.

Excellent way to achieve your Day Skipper qualification. Three of us went in May 17, Carrie excellent in the classroom and our Skipper on the yacht, Simon, we can’t recommend highly enough. Lots of work but thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Thanks guys.
