We completed a Competent Crew and a Day Skipper course over two weeks recently. We had a very specific objective with these two weeks, and we had an absolute blast! Thanks again for all your advice and insights, you made us love sailing!

We had a wonderful holiday with Trafalgar Sailing. Charles’s teaching style was perfect for us; I have learnt so much, I now feel a lot more confident at sea. 100% love sailing. Thank you for making our time with you and your staff so enjoyable.
