Having never sailed before I had a little trepidation ahead of the course. Our skipper, Lothar, was such an incredible teacher that my trepidation immediately subsided. His very clear directions, delivered with equal parts humour and experience made the weekend a delight. Albeit a bruise-inducing one! Pro-tip – bring some knee pads! I now feel confident to get back on a boat and help out as crew. I thoroughly recommend East Sail if you are looking to learn to sail.
We just spent 5 of the most wonderful days on the 5 Day Competent Crew course as a family. My Husband, myself and my 2 sons 6 and 10 years. Katey was nothing short of awesome, keeping the younger crew engaged in learning and having the initiative to stop for some fun in the sun for the kdis and parents theory lessons ! Stretching us as far as we could go and always explaining everything she was doing and why. For us it was the perfect reintroduction to sailing for my husband and I and a great beginning for the boys but what we hadnt bargained for was it was the most amasing team building week for the whole family. Thanks east sail for pulling it all together.
