Jez joined us to start his Fast Track Yachtmaster Course with Hamish, Dan, Arthur, Tai, Iain, and Shanyl. Duncan Pell returned for the month to pass on his shore based theory knowledge to all of the above. A warm welcome to Chris (4th right above with Concilia, Charlotte and Hamish) returning to BOS as RYA Cruising Instructor, alongside Steve, Charlie, Susie, Rob and Graham. Join BOS this year for RYA Courses, Family Sailing Holidays and of course our Fast Track Yachtmaster Professional and Gap Year Courses. Email here for further course details.

Hi Susie

Thanks again to you all for a very enjoyable Coastal Skipper course in January.

I was just hoping to follow up with you about your friend with the Hallberg-Rassy who was looking for crew for the ARC this year. I’d be very keen to get involved as I will be on my seasonal break from work over this period and would love to get some more sailing in. If he wants to know some details, I’m a 37 year old pilot and keen to get some transatlantic experience. I’m a good cook and, once upon a time, I was a qualified doctor (and I am a first aid instructor at the moment). Although I haven’t practiced medicine for about 11 years, should something go wrong mid Atlantic, I may have a better chance of providing some medical assistance. All the best to Mark, Steve and Duncan. Thanks again for a great time. Hope the lads are getting on well with their Yachtmaster training.

All the best David (photo below top row 4th from left).* 'We have put David in touch with our ARC colleague.'*
