Thank you for the best tuition available to complete my RYA Day Skipper course. The Instructor had vast experience, excellent knowledge and first class expertise.
This is the fourth RYA course I have booked for my family. Moonfleet is a clear winner in the standard of tuition, safely providing fun whilst learning.
Best value RYA practical course available. Moonfleet beats the competition hands down with its all inclusive prices, no hidden extras.
Many thanks to Noel and Christine of Moonfleet Sailing. Christine for her hard work behind the scene and Noel for his patience and vast amount of knowledge.
In quick succession I have now sailed with Noel for my RYA Competant Crew and the combined RYA Theory and Practical Day Skipper courses. I have also completed my RYA VHF Radio Course with Noel and have sailed on a five day cruise to gain more needed experience but without the pressure of skippering the boat.
