Level V Captain Rank Qualified Sailing Instructor / Assessor

Rated 5/5 by 1 student
With a calm and confident approach to teaching sailing, I'm a firm believer of the ethos of "competence before certification". Previous students that started their sailing journeys with me have gone on to lead successful lives working professionally within the industry as fully qualified skippers and crew. For some other students, it was more about instilling confidence so that they felt in a positive place to charter a boat with their family onboard. Let's build you a strong foundation of skills, from which you can confidently build experience in the wonderful world of sailing.

La Rapita

Available throughout the year and I'm happy to travel
Notes: It's almost possible to sail everyday of the year here in protected nature reserve, as there is a 12km protected lagoon with an average depth of 5 metres. Within 40 minutes of training in protected waters, we're out onto the Mediterranean sea.

Training and assessment

International License Training/Assessment

Notes: The sailboat used for training is a 35ft sloop, which is a E.G Van de Stadt designed boat named a Taos 35. A boat built in the 1970's to withstand harsh sea conditions, but is also a comfortable racer/cruiser.


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