March 2015 News from ROCK Sailing

The 2015 season is off to a flying start with the first two milebuilding weeks filling up quickly and heading east into the Mediterranean. We welcome Fast Track students Ross, Jack, Isobel and Bjorn and wish them fair winds, sunshine and great sailing. Our early February Express Day Skipper’s Nigel, Lucy, Sue and Ross all passed with flying colours. There are still places available for the 7th and 21st of March Express courses.

Now is the time to plan your sailing course or charter for the Easter holidays to take advantage of cheap flights. You can fly to Gibraltar directly from Heathrow, Gatwick, Luton, Birmingham and Manchester. For the summer season, Easy Jet will be commencing flights from Bristol from 19th April so anyone based in the south west can avoid the trek to the London Airports. Day Skipper and Competent Crew courses are running every week and your Day Skipper certificate will entitle you to apply for an International Certificate of Competence for chartering in Croatia, Turkey and Greece.

Quote of the month

“Just a quick note to say many thanks for all your help during our stay with you, doing our express day skippers course, we both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and feel like we learned a lot from both the theory and the practical courses.

If you would be kind enough to forward this email to Peter who took us out for our practical and was a great instructor and a tower of strength especially on the last day when we were returning to Gibraltar in that nasty weather we would be very grateful.”
