Cape Town

We live in Hout Bay and are happy to train on your boat in Hout Bay or Cape Town. I am a fully qualified NauticEd instructor. I do not have a commercially endorsed SAMSA license and do not have a commercially licensed boat, thus I am not allowed to charge a fee for my services. I am happy to teach you out of my own passion and only ask that you carry the expenses.
Notes: I am available to travel and assist with skippering, just contact me to check availability.


As a bonus "thank you", we'll give you two FREE sailing courses and electronic logbook!
