RYA COASTAL SKIPPER PRACTICAL COURSE

Dear Lesley

What impresses me is your complete professionalism. John is a demanding yet very encouraging instructor; a motor-cruiser course is hard work, incredibly instructive but yet remains immensely enjoyable. It is for this reason that, having taken the Coastal Skipper completion course, that I subsequently and gladly enrolled for  refresher-course, decided that Seatrek Marine Services was the only option for my PB2 and now intend to take my YM Coastal and Advanced PB under your exceptional guidance. Having taken the Sea-Safety course with two of my colleagues from the East Midlands I can happily commend your shore-based courses.

 

All best, John
