2018-04-20 11:43:345 Stars5 StarsVery enjoyable and a steep learning curve which was well delivered
2018-04-20 11:39:194 Stars4 StarsI enjoyed my course, but at times I found it difficult to understand my tutors instructions. I think more demonstrations would improve the course.

2018-04-20 11:30:553 Stars3 StarsSometimes I found it hard with the new terminology of sailing
2018-04-20 11:28:292 Stars2 StarsGenerally speaking the course was ok but I do feel that our instructor did lack patience with the crew and needs to learn to ‘read’ her students when they are struggling. Overall a fair experience. Thank you
2018-04-15 15:30:275 Stars5 StarsGreat course. learned so much even though I started as a full beginner. Great experience and look forward for the next time alr3dy!

2017-10-22 12:56:355 Stars5 StarsPav and Sam were excellent instructors and if possible would request either for my next level.
Great weekend despite the weather.
2017-10-22 12:53:305 Stars5 StarsPav and Sam were fantastic. I learnt significantly more on this weekend than I did on my previous ones. They were patient and focussed on teaching us. If I were to do further courses, I would request these guys. The only bad thing is that it made me realise the other weekends with another instructor were not that good and I would be a much better sailor had I completed all three weekends with pav or Sam.

All around high quality

2017-10-20 13:19:395 Stars5 StarsSuperb boat. Fantastic instructor. A great location for Dayskipper course.
2017-10-20 13:16:475 Stars5 StarsPatrick is an excellent young man and allows his crew to continuously learn whilst feeling safe
2017-10-20 13:12:305 Stars5 StarsVery enthusiastic instructor. Very flexible according to our needs.
2017-10-20 12:56:174 Stars4 StarsA very good course; instructor was to the point so there was no misunderstanding as to what you would achieve from the course depending on experience..... he also could cook! Lol
Looking forward to getting further experience so that can eventually progress to dayskipper. Thank you

2017-10-20 12:25:075 Stars5 StarsI should have done coastal skipper theory before doing this CS practical - I did pick up a lot of useful info/tip
2017-10-20 12:21:424 Stars4 StarsPav was excellent, very competent, contained at all times and patient. The course was well organised and informative. The only thing I could comment on was - we sailed in stormy weather on the first day, almost all crew beginners, I think it would be much better if the instructor introduced herself in more detail, with past experience etc, that would have been much more reassuring. Overall absolutely brilliant week on board.
2017-10-20 12:15:074 Stars4 StarsThanks Pav. First day was a bit scary.

2017-09-29 14:10:015 Stars5 StarsI booked this course to gain experience having already qualified as a day skipper. The skipper (George Junek) was excellent. Calm, knowledgable and a brilliant teacher. The boat Delius was a little tired and experienced a number of issues with equipment which George worked around admirably. He made the week excellent.

2017-09-17 14:54:325 Stars5 StarsGeorge was very good. Professional and fun. I would say, it would be good to hear more theory from him as were sailing as to why somethings were being done.
2017-09-17 14:51:255 Stars5 StarsThe 3rd week end with George was far better with my second instructor and was told by graham that I would have another weekend for compensation, I would like to arrange the next weekend as agreed.
I would like to learn further with George.
2017-09-17 14:46:195 Stars5 StarsGood weekend. Practice of pontoons was very useful. Overall excellent.
2017-09-17 14:29:235 Stars5 StarsThought Robert was very helpful and knowledgable and understanding of limitations.

2017-09-17 13:17:005 Stars5 StarsHad a fantastic time and learned lots. Feel much more confident than I did coming into the course and
all skills taught were extremely useful. Thanks again.
2017-09-15 13:01:035 Stars5 StarsExcellent instruction from Pav
2017-09-15 12:58:055 Stars5 StarsI thoroughly enjoyed the course- Pav is an excellent instructor, "firm, fair and fun".

She was very encouraging and inspired confidence.

I will definitely recommend the course and if I decide to train to Coastal skipper standard, I will return to ScotSail.

Thank you

2017-09-10 14:32:244 Stars4 StarsGreat experience but too much wind one day and no wind next limited out hands on sailing,no much instructor can do with that though.would return for further training. Cheers

2017-09-08 13:31:044 Stars4 StarsExcellent tuition but I was hoping to have some practice with slab reeling. The boat had in mast reeling. Other than that a great course!
2017-09-08 13:23:564 Stars4 StarsThe crew came together and sailed the boat really well at the end of the course.
I was able to challenge myself and felt well supported throughout. A great time was had by all.

2017-09-08 12:17:564 Stars4 StarsCourse was great, challenging at times. Sometimes felt as if some previous experience/understanding would have helped as there are lots of terms to get to grips with in a very short space of time!
2017-09-08 12:14:105 Stars5 StarsI know previous experience is not necessary but perhaps some pointers on the booking website for reading material / revision prior to course would help some

2017-09-03 16:41:555 Stars5 StarsThe boat, voyager 3 was a comfortable boat to learn in. Instructors gave valyable guidance on essential skills with great insight on berthing
2017-09-03 16:39:135 Stars5 StarsFantastic and informative experience
I would recommend it highly to everyone
2017-09-03 16:36:394 Stars4 StarsVery quick-paced for a complete novice but very informative and covered key areas well. Instructors were very calm, well-informed and good communicators; light-hearted in the right measure. I felt, for me as a novice, I needed more detail about boat-handling concepts and manoeuvring since I'd never encountered these principles before. Other students more advanced so maybe that contributed to the pace of information also.
2017-09-03 16:18:565 Stars5 StarsFirst class experience,I'm really looking forward to continuing with further training courses

2017-09-01 11:56:503 Stars3 StarsGreat school, but boats need better service and perhaps for certification- a trial should be given before assessment of competence or else make this clear when booking that no instruction will be given on areas such as navigating and pilotage.

2017-08-11 11:52:555 Stars5 StarsFantastic instruction and information from Patrik who is an outstanding instructor. The booking process can be a bit confusing as it is all web based although Graham was extremely helpful when I spoke with him.

2017-07-21 12:08:435 Stars5 StarsFantastic week, great instructor in Pav. Probably the best instruction we have had ever had. Some constructive feedback is that the back office administration could be slicker with some improved communication.
***MANAGEMENT RESPONSE***
Hi Alistair! Thanks for the feedback and review it's really very much appreciated - so glad you had a great time. Thanks for the comment about backnoffoce adminstration:

I can see that you reserved online on 1st May and received a booking email with all the details and link to the joining instructions and FAQs / help, and then a receipt for your deposit payment.

Then on 13th July we sent you a SMS Text message reminder and another reminder email that contained a complete breakdown of the booking, course details, bullet points, links, arrival times, what to bring etc and a link to pay your balance securely online, which you then did and received another confirmation text-message and email with payment receipt and another copy of of al the booking and course info, to ensure you had everything you needed.

I also checked for any support tickets raised about your booking and couldn't find any.

We really want to make sure everyone is happy with all aspects, so please let us know what else you would have liked so that we can take that on board. Would another emailed Course guide and booking Summary have been helpful? More pages on the online joining instructions ? Let us know and we'd be happy to try and constantly improve.

All the best guys!

2017-07-14 13:30:505 Stars5 StarsPatrik is an incredibly strong instructor. His instructions and teachings were very clear and you always felt 100% safe. I liked how he combined theory questions with practical application. He conducted his questions in a way that didn't make you feel silly/uncomfortable if you didn't know the answer immediately, but rather found a way to help you learn it clearly so that you knew it more thoroughly the next time.
2017-07-14 13:24:545 Stars5 StarsExcellent place to learn and the instructor was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and thorough. Surperb experience.

***Management Response***
Hi Richard, Thanks so much for the review - the restaurant you visited is one of two in the marina and is not connected to us in any way.

We do pre-book tables there for crews if they wish to join, but we've never had any such feedback about them before - as a result we took your comments (anonymously) and showed the manager. They said that they had run out of some main courses and specials on the evening you visited, and we asked the Instructor who echoed your comments, and agreed that some menu items not being available was disappointing.

The restaurant manager has said that they will try harder to ensure they don't run out of menu items, even on busy event evenings like yours. We told them that we would need to consider using the other restaurant more in future if our customers made similar comments in the future. We think they understand now(!) Thanks!
2017-06-02 12:08:345 Stars5 StarsGeorge was a fantastic teacher. Great course. Restaurant first night not great but everything else was great.
2017-06-02 12:05:475 Stars5 StarsOnly thing that let Scotsail down is the meal on arrival - poor service and had very little left to order from and to be honest what was ordered was mostly left as very poor standard. As for our instructor he was brilliant and such a friendly way of teaching and passing in his knowledge. Big thank you and plan to come back for my day skipper.

2017-05-05 11:15:445 Stars5 StarsCouldn't imagine a better instructor than George - far better than any other RYA instructors I've had before. Always happy, brought the group together well and was phenomenal at helpfully pushing for really high standards on the boat.

Was a bit surprised about the extra costs involved e.g. Kitty and price of the certificate.

***MANAGEMENT RESPONSE***
Hi Andrew, thanks so much for the feedback it really means a lot to us. Sounds like you had an awesome time! We note that this was booked for you by someone else that you came along with on a reservation for 2 persons; and that person was emailed all the booking info including the link to the FAQs etc where it was explained what's inlcuded and what's not.

The price of the RYA Photo ID Licence Card style certificates is £5 each, which is what the RYA charge us to buy them in for you. We can't charge you this up front, because you havent yet 'passed' the course, and others may be doing other courses which do not have Photo ID Certificates, e.g. Competent Crew, and the courses are flexible meaning you can decide on arrival and during the week what's best, so including it in the price wouldn't be fair on those not seeking to achieve a £5 photo-ID certificate like Day Skipper.

So when someone 'passes' the Day Skipper course and is eligible for a photo-ID certificate, they need to supply a passport sized photo and £5 to cover the cost of their certificate and registration.

This is detailed on our website FAQs and joining instructions under its' own heading.

All on board meals snacks and drinks etc are included, but if you as a crew decide to do any extra activities such as visiting specific marinas that charge for facilities or you want to go out for restaurant / bar meals ashore that aren't included, the group normally makes a 'kitty' to go and do that, and it can be fun to realx ashore once or twice a week in this way.

It may be that the person booking this for you read this information but that you didn't and so leading to the confusion.

Anyway, were glad that you enjoyed and passed the course!

All the best :)

Hi Emily, Thanks so much for the feedback, it's really important to us. We note also that you were part of a private group of 5 persons for a sailing weekend booked by just one member of your family on behalf of you all, for a 60th birthday experience, and so perhaps as it was booked for you you didn't have the opportunity to read the website FAQs and Joining Info beforehand: all on-board meals, snacks and drinks are included, but any visits to marinas or shore locations away for restaurant meals or activities ashore are the clients' costs, and we do have a 'kitty' style system to help people split up the cost of going ashore should they choose to do that and put a few pounds into it to go or stay ashore at a specific marina. We hope that helps to explain things a little better, but we thank you for letting us know!

2017-04-14 11:51:534 Stars4 StarsJulia was fantastic! Helpful, patient and encouraging. The boat, Jon Boy, mainsail was badly furled before we started, was fixed again and then got stuck again, which deminished the sailing experience a little. Several berth lights were broken.
Otherwise it was all wonderful! Thank you

***MANAGEMENT RESPONSE***
Hi! Thanks for letting us know - we have now ordered a brand new mainsail being delivered from Southampton late April 2017, as well as a few other items! Keeping complex sailing yachts maintained is a full time job but we really appreciate the feedback, and glad you enjoyed the course! See you again soon!
2017-04-14 11:45:034 Stars4 StarsSuperb instruction, just a few maintenance issues on the yacht
2017-04-14 11:42:114 Stars4 StarsInstructor was thorough and friendly .
2017-04-14 11:24:015 Stars5 Stars Great instruction and learning experience. Good fun.
2017-04-14 11:20:442 Stars2 StarsGood week. Not entirely what I was expecting but worthwhile gaining coastal certificate
2017-04-14 11:17:144 Stars4 StarsI really enjoyed the week and appreciated the chance to spend time helming, especially close quarters manoeuvring - it can be difficult to get this experience on others' yachts.
At times some instructions were not quite clear but I think this was mainly a language issue.
Pleased to have passed the course, thanks.
2017-04-14 11:11:293 Stars3 StarsGot lots of practice of manoeuvres but sometimes the explanations could have been clearer or used more diagrams prior to practice rather than afterwards.

2017-03-24 13:32:535 Stars5 StarsDanny was very knowledgable and a good communicator. He got the message across clearly without patronising people which is a worry on short courses.

2017-03-17 13:13:084 Stars4 StarsGreat experience, I thoroughly enjoyed it, although it was very intense. Very straightforward and effective teaching from the instructor. It would be helpful to put information about hidden costs flr cleaning, meals and marina fees on the website.

2017-03-17 13:05:465 Stars5 StarsSuperb experience, felt very safe with George, enabling us to experience sailing in conditions we probably would've avoided on our own. Now feel much more capable onboard. I felt the boats bed cushions and curtains were in need of replacement.
2017-03-17 13:02:225 Stars5 StarsGeorge was excellent. Recommend clients bring mattress toppers and mention cleaning bill in advance.

2016-10-21 12:09:545 Stars5 StarsAs my first time with Scotsail and only my second aboard a yacht I was a little apprehensive before my trip.

2016-10-21 11:51:043 Stars3 StarsEnjoyed the sailing and practical experience. Felt however that there was an imbalance in amount of opportunities to learn, in comparison with Day Skipper, given that both courses cost the same price. Found this aspect frustrating at times
2016-10-21 11:45:493 Stars3 StarsImprove IT and website
2016-10-21 11:43:334 Stars4 StarsWonderful experience, I really had no idea what to expect - enjoyed every aspect of the course. The only thing That could have made it better would've been more wind!

Had an issue with the booking system, receiving multiple automated emails.
2016-10-21 11:38:324 Stars4 StarsI think we could have go to another place instead of coming to Largs the night before. Maybe more time sailing .. Lost the first morning with the shopping !
Will be good to have another choice of sail in case there is not much wind ! Like spinnakers
2016-10-21 11:32:375 Stars5 StarsSkipper very good and explains the work well...

2016-09-23 09:23:133 Stars3 StarsInstructor fantastic. Boat scruffy.

***MANAGEMENT RESPONSE"""

Thanks for the feedback - genuinely helps us. The boats are cleaned and turned around on Sundays ready for the next crew, Sara who normally cleans the yachts couldn't come down to the marina that afternoon and as a result our Instructors had to do it quickly themselves, in addition to their own pre-arrival safety checks.

We're sorry if the yacht wasn't up to the usual standard on that day, and we've since made a permanent checklist for the cleaning items which is available to all Instructors, not just the cleaner, in case the cleaner is delayed or cannot arrive on that day as planned. Thanks again!
2016-09-23 09:20:424 Stars4 StarsBrush was bald. Halyard and foresail sheets didn't hold in winch.

***MANAGEMENT RESPONSE"""

Thanks for the feedback message - the Yacht's Maintenance Rep has replaced the brush with a brand new one, and the sail winches are due their next service shortly at the end of September, as per normal maintenance of yachts.

Thanks again for letting us know!

2016-09-09 13:29:554 Stars4 StarsSally was excellent. All food should be included.

***MANAGEMENT RESPONSE"""
Thanks for the feedback - all food is definitely included and always has been; that's all meals, snacks and drinks on-board during course days.

Excluded is alcohol and a prepared or restaurant evening meal after Sunday night check-in as peoples' arrival times do vary greatly, meaning many have eaten already or arrive much later on making restaurant bookings difficult.

Apologies if this wasn't made clear to you.

Kindest Regards

2016-09-09 10:29:053 Stars3 StarsEnjoyable course, was doing the course with a comp crew and didn't feel the instruction was in line with the guidance of zero experience which is the pre course requirement
2016-09-09 10:25:363 Stars3 StarsI would recommend that crews are advised to take more time off-vessel, e.g. Have at least one evening meal during a week's course and or a lunch break off-vessel. During the week's course I spent only an hour or so off-vessel and started to feel quite weary and cramped by the conditions. A couple of breaks would have prevented this.

***MANAGEMENT RESPONSE***

Thanks for the feedback - genuinely much appreciated. This feedback is really unusual because most crews go ashore once or twice a day, for lunch and again at an island or village marina for a wander around / visit shops etc, so we decided to look into this one further with the Instructor and other members of the crew.

Whilst the others didn't feel quite the same as yourself, examination of the logbooks did show you did had quite a lot of sailing time and time on-board.

We think that our relatively new RYA Instructor was rather over-keen that week, and we've given them further guidance on making more time for island and marina stop-overs, as is the normal everyday practice on our yachts.

Thanks again for the message - feedback helps us improve - and glad you enjoyed it though!!

Thanks for the feedback - the sail is 2 years old and has had a lot of use. Pav told us during the week it was becoming tired so we have already ordered a brand new one at £3,600.00 due to be fitted next week. Thanks for the feedback and glad you had a great time!

Instructor was lovely and very knowledgable although could have made us be in control of the boat in tricky situations more often.

However communicating with Scotsail was very difficult to book the course! Very frustrating.

2016-08-19 13:36:375 Stars5 StarsSally our instructor was excellent - very calm, knowledgeable, encouraging and great to be with. I would highly recommend her and the course.
2016-08-19 13:30:133 Stars3 StarsThe westview sailing videos do not provide enough theory refresher. Students should be strongly advise to do the online theory course

2016-08-07 13:00:275 Stars5 StarsExcellent instructor and I learnt a lot. The weather was good / challenging and it was good that the instructor assessed the level of the crew right. The only slight problem is with the website, it's not very intuitive.
2016-08-07 12:55:085 Stars5 StarsGreat week end to kick off the CC course. Mixed conditions but great instructors that kept the crew motivated. Felt safe at all times. Pav is a excellent and competent instructor. Boat great!
Would advise to include all costs in the course costs it gets a bit frustrating when asked to pay for extra things that we did not know. Not the instructor fault as I did not book through her.
2016-08-07 12:51:045 Stars5 StarsA great experience. Weather was unpredictable but I always felt I was in safe hands. Pav was very patient and reassuring instructor .

2016-08-05 12:03:574 Stars4 StarsSally was a really wonderful instructor. We learned a lot and enjoyed ourselves.

There were a few bits of equipment that were a little worn (winches, kitchen equipment), but otherwise the boat was nice. It also would have been helpful to have an outboard for the dingy.
2016-08-05 11:58:495 Stars5 StarsSally was an Excellent instructor.
2016-08-05 11:17:145 Stars5 StarsLoved it all - will be back for some mile building and adventure sailing. Who knows I may bring my children so the can learn to crew for me!

2016-07-22 12:33:185 Stars5 StarsSally was great and taught us so much, always a delight to be around, very helpful, calm, perfect instructor.

The facilities down in the saloon was in fair condition, some mold in front cabin, felt a bit dirty.
2016-07-22 12:29:075 Stars5 StarsSally was great at explaining things and I learned more this week than I have in 18 yrs of owning a boat. Thank you for giving me the confidence to sail again after an enforced gap .

2016-07-17 06:45:284 Stars4 StarsAdmin needs to communicate with students more efficiently.Instructor excellent,,,
2016-07-16 22:13:394 Stars4 StarsContacting Scotsail for details of the trip was very difficult. We got an email detailing us on the boat and skipper after we were already in the departure marina, although we couldn't read the email until 3 days later, when we had an Internet connection.
2016-07-16 22:07:554 Stars4 StarsVery good holiday. Could do better with communications for arrival instructions and general information. Found it VERY difficult to get a reply from anyone when I had a query.
Ales was a excellent captain.
2016-07-16 21:58:474 Stars4 StarsAlex was a super skipper. The pre-trip organisation was poor- slow/no response to enquirers, no final joining instructions and the fact that we had a new skipper and boat!
2016-07-15 12:32:025 Stars5 StarsFantastic instructor (Simon) and great crew
2016-07-15 12:32:005 Stars5 StarsFantastic instructor (Simon) and great crew
2016-07-15 12:29:445 Stars5 StarsI thought the boat bolero 4 was showing signs of well use, also the winch handles need replacing. Simon Mason was great instructor
2016-07-15 11:59:095 Stars5 StarsAbsolutely first-rate instructor (Simon Mason) - achieved even more during the week than I could have imagined. Only criticism is that the boat (Bolero) was a little tired (sails, winches, upholstery)

2016-07-08 13:09:545 Stars5 StarsGreat 5 days of sailing, very demanding for me, should have done a lot more of preparation / reading up before course. My last course. Competent crew, with Scotsail was last September.

2016-07-01 12:08:504 Stars4 StarsReally good week - learnt a lot. Would like to do further courses with Scotsail. Only thing is I didn't think there was quite enough money in the kitty at the start of the week to feed 6 people for 5 days.
2016-07-01 12:04:395 Stars5 StarsRob was an excellent tutor. Superb experience
2016-07-01 12:02:525 Stars5 StarsFab week learning to sail. Fabulous instructor who made the experience fantastic all round
2016-07-01 12:00:434 Stars4 StarsRob was patient with us when we got ourselves into some sticky situations, very knowledgable and used his experiences to pass as much information as possible that I hope to absorb fully! I enjoyed learning from him.

Scotsail provided heaps of helpful information but I thought the competent crew book would be part of the course ( I had bought a copy for studying before). Also, I thought the float for a weeks worth of food & drink for 6 people was a touch too little.
2016-07-01 11:28:485 Stars5 StarsGreat course. Great instruction. Will be booking again.

2016-06-26 14:18:175 Stars5 StarsI had a great weekend and felt very safe with Pav Who is an excellent teacher. I only felt a little unsafe when other students were handling the boat in strengthening winds. The boat Dileas needs a really good clean, there was mould in the cupboards and many parts were either broken/taped up or missing. One last thing that would be beneficial for a teaching boat would be to have all the ropes clearly identifiable by being different colours. I look forward to coming back and will be requesting Pav to help me complete my competent crew. Thank you

2016-06-24 12:39:554 Stars4 StarsI structures was extremely competent. Vey good .
Whilst our boat was sound she had quite a few broken bits.
Main sail has no bag and main sheet traveller brokenish. Really quite a handful for crew!!
But over all a great week. Not sure about main cabin sleeping tho!
2016-06-24 12:27:255 Stars5 StarsGood instructors who took the time to ensure everyone understood, adopting different styles appropriate to the individual.

2016-06-10 12:00:524 Stars4 StarsVery competent skill full instructor. Sometimes however we were left uncertain when to defer to our instructor and when we should assume responsibility ourselves which meant we might jump in when not appropriate or hesitate when we shouldn't.

2016-04-17 14:39:503 Stars3 StarsOverall good. Instuctor knowledgable but often would take over meaning we didn't learn as much as we could if we were aloud to do it ourselves. A few hidden charges. Thought all food was covered but had to buy our own dinner on Friday. All course levels taught on same boat. Held day skippers back and went over the heads of new sailors. Not very good environment for teaching no one learns anything

Just on Delias, the shower pump didn't work so cleaning was made more difficult. Apart from that all good.

2016-04-08 11:31:324 Stars4 StarsThe boat was a bit tired, but did the trick. Would have preferred to know about all the extra costs up front. Great experience though.

2016-03-27 15:28:004 Stars4 StarsLeak at aft making the centre bed mattress wet (not moist! Wet!!!). Instructor was great, weather was rough but fun, great to learn sailing. Looking forward to the next two weekends.

2016-03-27 14:40:255 Stars5 StarsInstructors were friendly, informative and expressed their knowledge very well. Detailed instructions were easily explained. Great!
2016-03-27 14:35:465 Stars5 StarsInstructors on both days were 1st class. Boats were excellent. Would recommend this course to anyone thinking about going on the water.
2016-03-27 14:29:494 Stars4 StarsVery useful
2016-03-25 14:23:005 Stars5 StarsWell organised. Very effective skipper.
2016-03-25 14:18:284 Stars4 StarsThere were a lot of hidden costs that were quite annoying, particularly in that they need to be paid in cash. These hidden costs are in the form of marina fees, sailing equipment, cleaning fees, certificate fees, etc. All of this should be included in the overall cost of the trip. Further, I think that more attention should be paid to the relationship of the student to Scotsail, i.e., one of client to service provider.
2016-03-25 14:09:314 Stars4 StarsI think Paula was great but we should have had a bit more safety info on the first day esp man overboard and safety harnesses just in case anything went wrong on that first day

2016-03-25 14:01:225 Stars5 StarsPaula was an amazing instructor with so much energy and enthusiasm!

Thoroughly enjoyed the course and learnt so much!
2016-03-25 13:28:255 Stars5 StarsGood intensity on the course with variation in the days and exercises.
2016-03-25 13:21:005 Stars5 StarsHad a great time, thanks. There was some issues with the booking. We asked for a separate berth for a 13 year old but he had to share in the end. We also asked to be on a different boat from the last course and we were assured we would be, but we were on the same boat again. Other than that the course and instructions were good.
2016-03-25 13:09:374 Stars4 StarsExcellent instruction given, big difference between the people on the course which gave positives and more than a few negatives but overall very enjoyable course
