I've just completed the Day Skipper Theory Course over 8 weeks and found the course to be well designed and suited for people who are new to sailing like myself.

I have used first class sailing on 3 different practical courses and 2 short class, and i always found it very beneficial. The instructors managed to adapt to each crew level and I felt that I made progress every time and the instructors were very attentive and open to questions and discussions. I would recommend it to people who are interested in learning and improving their sailing with no hesitation.

First Class sailing did not disappoint and everything worked really well. The boat was clean and well maintained, food excellent and our instructor Ken was endlessly patient and a real sage.

We did a day as part of the RYA Active Marina and found it excellent. Easy teaching style, good boat and plenty of time to learn things and reflect on them.

My whole experience with First Class sailing has been of absolute excellence. The booking process was simple and easy with all of my emails being answered within the hour. The course itself was very professionally organised. The boat was in an immaculate condition, the food was of the highest quality, the skipper was patient and experienced and the structure of the course was very well thought out and put together.

I would recommend this course to anyone looking to improve their sailing skills and have a great time and meet some interesting people along the way.
