Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Hi - I just wanted to drop you a line to tell you how much we enjoyed our day sailing with Declan Curtis last weekend. He asked us what we’d like to do and I responded that we’d like a taster of the Day Skipper Practical. Myself , Will Hanley and David Bagnall enjoyed a day of learning and laughing with Declan. When I get to do the practical myself (I’ve done the theory course). I’d like to do it with you guys with Declan as our instructor 😎
Regards

We did a 5 day competent crew course on the yacht Manjaro. Firstly the positives. Puerto Calero is a great marina with good facilities and plenty of restaurants to choose from. The yacht was of a good standard, well equipped and surprisingly comfortable. We were by chance an all female crew, 3 of us doing competent crew and 1 doing day skipper. All of us gelled really quickly and worked well as a team. This was the best thing about our week.

Now the not so good. The days are very long. We expected it to be tough but didn’t expect to be starting at 0830hrs and finishing at 1830-1900hrs. This was compounded by the fact we had no breaks and quickly learnt the only way we would get lunch was to make sandwiches. Not ideal.

Reading other reviews other people had a more relaxed and positive learning experience. We had the opposite and found Nils our instructor to be brusque and overbearing, shouting at us when we made mistakes and having no emotional intelligence as to the crews welfare.

We have brought this to the attention of Endeavour who have since spoken to him and have offered him support to improve his teaching style.

Sadly this experience has left us unable to continue our sailing journey with Endeavour. It was only our sense of loyalty to the crew and determination that we persevered. We both passed and are now competent crew and will progress elsewhere with hopefully a more supportive training provider.

I googled Endeavour Sailing School on a recommendation of a friend who had worked for them - I needed to escape January in the UK. Having got my RYA qualifications some 20 years ago and mostly sailing my 30’ yacht in local waters with the help of chart-plotters, I was very aware that I had forgotten and become lazy about many things. Therefore a Skills and Drills course fitted the bill. From my first email enquiry I was impressed with the speed of reply, the succinct joining instructions and pre-course information. Nigel our instructor took time to find out what areas the crew of 4 wished to concentrate on and tailored the weeks activities to suit. His patience throughout out the week was fantastic, I came away with many bullet points that I can take back to my own sailing to improve my skippering abilities. Having not done any night sailing without GPS for decades, the old grey matter had some remembering to do for our night sailing exercise. Great week thank you Keith, Steph and Keith ( also to the lemon drizzle cake baker), weather brilliant and lovely sailing area. I would have no reservations in recommending Endeavour Sailing School and hope to sail with them again.

I had a fantastic week doing the Competent Crew Course on a very well maintained boat and in a beautiful sailing area. I have special praise for our instructor Nigel, who is a very experienced sailor ( he trains the Clipper round the world crews) and brought a good sense of humour to the boat. He thought me in a calm and effective manner to be safe on the boat and to know what to do.
I was on a boat with to Yachtmaster Prep canditates, which was a blessing, because I learned more than in the comp crew syllabus.
I would always come back to do more courses with endeavour!

My Partner and I have just completed our RYA Competent Crew course with Endeavour. I have nothing but good things to say about the Company and the whole experience, with particular praise for our Instructor, Patrick. His knowledge, expert level sailiing skills, together with relaxed but highly effective teaching manner, made our time extremely enjoyable and productive. Nothing was too much trouble for Patrick and the tips and advice he passed onto us will be very useful in our future sailing careers, as well as ensuring that we make the very best of our time in Lanzarote.
Many Thanks all!

We were a group of 5 (mixed gender) who took our RYA Day Skipper course with Endeavour Sailing earlier in the year. Stephanie and Keith were immediately very welcoming. We were split into two boats with two instructors which gave us all much closer teaching and mentoring. We were taught by Patrick, who we very knowledgeable with lots of experience and stories. He was really friendly, relaxed and professional and serious about ensuring we became safe skippers. We had lots of fun but also feel very well equipped and confident for our ongoing adventures on the sea.

A great RYA training school. I had a fantastic yacht master prep week and as a added bonus our instructor was Kenneth who is a skipper on Skip Novak’s Artic Expedition vessel. As always in sailing the crews you meet are always a joy to sail with.

As someone with 5 years experience ship handling, I can say without a doubt that I had a phenomenal experience here. Our instructor - Ashley - was one of the most patient and incredible instructors I have encountered in my career as a mariner.

He enabled his students to skipper the boat in all situations only intervening when absolutely required. He is positive and patient and goes above and beyond to ensure not only that his students understand the material but that they are having a great time. He personally made us many cups for tea!!

His instruction and the school have ignited within me a new passion that I never even considered before.

This school is a challenging and rewarding experience. Be honest with the office when deciding upon a course and complete their suggested prerequisites before joining a program. The negative reviews are largely from people who come into come into the course thinking they are more experienced than they are and are disappointed when they do not achieve their desired qualifications because they are unsafe to get them.

I can’t recommend this instructor and this program enough.
