Hi Susie Now on my way back home from a very nice vacation. Some reviews. I Joined Blue Oyster Day Skipper Practical and Theory from 6th of August to 15th of August 2017 in Gibraltar. Alastair McLoughlin was my practical trainer a very skilled sailer and has excellent skills in teaching and passing on the knowledge. I learned a lot from him, so now I feel skilled and safe going on my own as captain on yacht. As an extra bonus he knows the Gibraltar history and he is a very nice person to be with, great guy. We had a great crew and an amazing week that I will never forget. My best recommendation:) Theory with Duncan Pell. He made me work hard every day never gave me a chance to slip away. Very qualified in teaching sailing theory. Made me feel secure in navigating and all other procedures related to being a captain. Interesting person to be with we had many great talks. Days I will never forget. Best Regards Hans H. Sørensen (Photo of Hans with the Charts above).

I thought I would write and say firstly what a great skipper we had in Alastair Mcloughlin. He was great fun, patient, informative, allowed us to do as much sailing as possible but also knew when to take over. I would recommend him to anyone and would do another course with him. I was able to learn far beyond competent crew level and and am keen to find out about mile building weeks. Gibraltar although a great place to sail out of was itself pretty pricey. Thanks again for a fantastic week. Daniel Fisher Hi Daniel try our Barcelona, Majorca, Menorca, Ibiza, Mile builders next one 9th October. +34 629 881 923.

Dear Susie, It was a very good course/Day skipper training with very nice places we were sailing to, all due to Grahams experience didactically and in terms of sailing theory and practice, his knowledge of the region and way of dealing with the crew, besides that he is cooking very well. Julia Kossman.

BOS Review RYA Competent CrewBOS Review RYA Comp CrewBOS Review Niki

Hi Susie So sorry not to have seen you last weekend but I just wanted to drop you a line to tell you that we loved every minute. We had a blast!! Both Jon and I loved the whole experience and Charlie (BOS RYA Instructor) has now lead us on the road of a long and hopefully enjoyable path to learn more. We had the weather, which we know was fortuitous and we felt Charlie was just a terrific teacher. Aurora was a wonderful boat to learn on - as I say we both loved it and we will be back!! Thanks again for making it possible for us to split the course into 2 weekends - that was just so very helpful with work commitments. We look forward to catching up again. Kind regards Nicky (Nicky Bennett-Baggs) RYA Competent Crew Courses with BOS Barcelona and Gibraltar. Email us here for further course information and availability. +34 629 881 923.

Blue Oyster Sailing Fast Track Students at Work - Rich and Yaz meet at Trade Winds May'17

Lauren and Yaz BOS Fast TrackLauren Yaz and Rich Fast TrackLauren Rich and Yaz BOS Sailing

Hi Mark, Susie and Harriet, It's Rich calling from Kefalonia in Greece. I'm a skipper for Tradewinds and currently on a catamaran with one of your other students Yaz Basin (sailed with Lauren Stewart) and her boyfriend Murray. They have just started and are taking over the boat next week. Yaz says hi and hope you are well. So do I. Boy I've been busy the last couple of weeks. Originally asked to do one week for trade winds and now I'm doing three. When I finish at the end of next week I'll be going back to the UK. Yaz and her boyfriend were on my boat last week as a trainee crew which is amusing since I haven't sailed these waters before although I have worked for Trade Winds . I like it here much better than the Caribbean. Hoping they will need a relief skipper every so often so I can pop over and keep my hand in.

It was definitely worth doing the course. How's life in Calonge? Best wishes. Richard S. Capewell. Fast Track Yachtmaster with BOS 2017 email here for further information. Our 7 and 14/15 week courses start every Monday +34 629 881 923
