Having spent two weeks with Jeff and Lance Getting my Day Skipper I cannot imagine better instructors exist. They have a passion for sailing and share it enthusiastically and with clear explanation, patience and encouragement.

Having observed the other schools in the area I would only go back to Gib Sailing !1

I spent two weeks with Gib Sailing in April 2022 - the first week doing my RYA competent crew and the second my RYA day skipper qualifications. Jeff is an extremely knowledgeable sailor but is also an excellent instructor who delivers his courses with the perfect balance between sailing theory and practical application. His courses are very practical driven, which in my view really is the best way to learn how to sail. I felt well prepared and safe in his hands. On my course there were two other students with varying degrees of sailing ability and Jeff managed this very well, giving more complex tasks to the yachtmasters in training but making sure that the competent crew/day skippers/costal skippers understood and were involved in the process. As a consequence, over the two weeks I felt like I learnt an awful lot about sailing yachts and navigation and we also managed to have a lot of fun along the way!

The boat is immaculate and has everything onboard that you will need including wet weather gear. Jeff was very accommodating and even arranged for myself and the other students to take our VHF radio exams last minute.

I would 100% reccomended Gib Sailing to any of my friends/family who want to learn how to sail, to build their mileage or to prep for their yachtmaster exams.

Oh and…. he probably won’t mention it but he can play sweet child of mine on the guitar….

Well, what can I say! Gib Sailing is an AWESOME sailing school! Jeff is a proper Sailor and there is nothing he couldn’t teach you about this wonderful hobby/life style. He is both patient and understanding and can teach at all levels. Highly recommend to anyone and everyone - any time spent on Meander K is pure pleasure & so much fun! Don’t just think about it - Do it & drop Jeff a line or should I say ‘sheet’ ⛵️😉

My boyfriend and I completed our Competent Crew with Jeff and then my boyfriend went back to do his Day Skipper a week later. What a fantastic experience! Jeff is probably one of the best teachers I have ever had, his style and ease with which he describes every topic makes it so easy to learn from him. And even if there were things I didn't understand he would explain a different way and I never felt stupid asking any minor question. Jeff is a born sailor and a natural teacher!
The Meander K is a comfortable and well maintained vessel and we really enjoyed living aboard. The sailing was fun and loved our trip to Ceuta. We also went to La Duquesa. During the second week, my boyfriend went all the way from Benalmadena to Barbate and he had the time of his life sailing overnight and in strong winds. A great learning experience. Jeff is a super nice guy and we look forward to seeing him again - we will be back!
Thanks Jeff!

Met Jeff my instructor and his yacht Meander K in La Linea Spain near Gibraltar for the RYA day skipper course.

I found Jeff to be an exceptional instructor , calm approach and no confusion. I gained very clear techniques that enabled me to feel confident in handling Meander K, out and in marinas in all conditions. I learned very clear passage planning skills and how to sail safely in calm and challenging conditions.

Jeff simplified what I had previously seen as complex and frantic, he helped me avoid chaos, keeping everything under control and safe.

If you want to learn to sail confidently and safely or have found sailing hard work and chaotic , I would recommend a week with Jeff, you will learn lots, I did. Thanks Jeff, regards Keith

ps, Meander K is a great yacht and very well set up.

Having sailed with Jeff for over a year, some 1500 miles and 60+ days, I achieved my dream of becoming a safe, competent and passionate sailor. Putting my knowledge to the test on recent 450nm passage through rain, swell, squalls and lightning in the distance - his voice was in my ear, guiding my decisions and keeping charter guests comfortable and calm in challenging conditions. If you want to be an accomplished sailor ready for whatever the wind and weather throws at you book with Gib Sailing School - it will prepare you for the unexpected!

My husband and I have recently returned to Gibsailingschool to practice some sailing skills after two years covid 19 restrictions. Personally we believe Gibsailingschool is the best in Gibratar. We have gained a lot of confidence and learned a lot skills during the week. Especially Jeff Nunn , who is not only a great instructor with vast experience and he is also a very passionate sailor.
Thank you Gibsailingschool. See you next time, Jeff.

Jeff is an amazing instructor. Knowledgeable, experienced, patient and fun. My husband did his Coastal Skipper and I did my Day Skipper practical. I loved the structure of the week and the step by step approach and lots of practical application. We had our 3 year old daughter with us and Jeff was amazing in also engaging her during the week. Don’t be afraid if you have children and want to learn sailing. Gib Sailing is the right place not just for individuals, friends but also for families. Highly recommend Gib Sailing. We will definitely continue our sailing certification / journey with Gib Sailing.

I spent one week with Gib Sailing School in May 2022 doing my RYA Coastal Skipper. It was an amazing learning experience. Jeff is a very experienced and skillful instructor with an ability of sense-making that I have not encountered in any other instructor before.
The course booking and other formalities were efficiently handled by the school, and I have no hesitation whatsoever recommending Gib Sailing School to anyone interested in enhancing their sailing skills.

We are based in Southern Germany with the US army and so keen to explore Europe and the Mediterranean. My two sons, aged 10 and 11, and I went with Jeff to do a competent crew course as soon as they broke up this summer. Trip was excellent and Jeff was fantastic, coaching and encouraging the kids. It got them totally hooked on sailing and keen to do more. We will definitely be coming back to Gib Sailing. Weather was perfect, saw a lot of dolphins and food in all marina's was exceptional. My youngest son still talking about working the helm the entire route from North Africa back to Spain.
