An enjoyable, full-on sailing course. The couple I joined on board were very friendly and helpful and Lou, our instructor, was not only very good at passing on her knowledge but also a very good cook. We had very good instruction in all of the necessary skills to sail a yacht. I would highly recommend.

We took a 5-day Day Skipper Practical course on the Solent with Jim. The instruction was excellent and we had a lot of practice on navigation, tides, boat handling, launching, mooring and sailing. The boat was in very good shape and we were well-catered for. There were also opportunities to have local food at each of the marinas we visited. I'm taking the Day Skipper Theory course with Nomad Sailing too, and it is quite comprehensive. The knowledge I gained with Nomad's courses prepared me well for a one-week flotilla sail in the Greek Ionian, covering hundreds of nautical miles and with up to force 5 winds. I highly recommend Nomad Sailing for the Day Skipper Practical and Theory courses!

Completed a day skipper practical course over 5 days. The course was excellent, top class tuition and lots of opportunity to practice a range of skills. The settings in the Solent are also very picturesque and provides lots of variation over a week. On top of the sailing, the food provided was also first rate.

I took the Day Skipper practical course at the end of September/beginning October during five days of pretty challenging weather. I thought carefully before choosing to do it with Nomad and have no doubt I made the right choice. Matt was an outstanding instructor, providing the right level of empowerment but always being there to offer calm support when needed. He worked very well around the weather to fit all of the curriculum in. Most important, at the end of five days I felt truly confident to step up and skipper the boat which is what it should be about. I didn't want to be given the ticket unless I was up to it. This course was everything I wanted it to be and for me will be a highlight of 2020.

Had a great experience doing day skipper in a relaxed atmosphere. Would highly recommend them and would do courses again in the future with Nomad.
