Dear Susie

I would just like to give you some feedback on last weeks RYA Day Skipper course that I attended. The boat was ideal for the number of people on it, well stocked with all the refreshments and food we needed. The sailing route we took was spectacular, giving us a great week of sailing. Moving on to our instruction, I would like to thank Steve for his seemingly never ending patience. His knowledge knows no bounds. I personally gained a huge amount of information and sailing experience day by day. I know this will make me a better sailor and enable me to get the most out of future sailing opportunities. Could you please forward this to Steve as I have no contact details for him and let him know that the Reeds Skipper Handbook has been ordered and will be fully utilised.

Once again many thanks for a well organised course. I will happily recommend Blue Oyster Sailing.

Kind regards Alistair Russell Blue Oyster RYA Day Skipper Practical Course 11th September 2016.
