“Brilliant! Fantastic depth of knowledge and a great learning environment. Great to be able to have an unbiased real world experience to apply to the minefield that is boat maintenance.”

Phillpa, Young 88

“Ross’s skill level and experience was shared in a way even a newbie could understand. Being new to owning a yacht and the yachting world, the course information was invaluable. I learnt
so much, on my beginners level that will save me alot of money in mistakes. I was also stoked to learn the more technical stuff, even if I don’t use it myself, having the knowledge and understanding to discuss with a professional is real
ly helpful.
If you own, plan to crew on passages, the knowledge gained, even down to the tools list, is value for money. Ross is able to condense his wealth of knowledge and practical experience into
learning for all levels. Couldn’t recommend the course enough.
Ngā mihi”
