RYA Coastal Skipper Successfully completes his BOS RYA Coastal Skipper Combined Theory and Practical Course

Hi Susie 
Katie and Dan RYA Day Skippers BOS Barcelona


Thanks again to you all for a very enjoyable RYA Coastal Skipper course in January. I was just hoping to follow up with you about your friend with the Hallberg-Rassy who was looking for crew for the ARC this year. I’d be very keen to get involved as I will be on my seasonal break from work over this period and would love to get some more sailing in. If he wants to know some details, I’m a 37 year old pilot and keen to get some transatlantic experience. I’m a good cook and, once upon a time, I was a qualified doctor (and I am a first aid instructor at the moment). Although I haven’t practiced medicine for about 11 years, should something go wrong mid Atlantic, I may have a better chance of providing some medical assistance. If he wants to know any more details, feel free to pass on my email and phone number. As of around March, I’ll be based in Mallorca.

All the best to Mark, Steve and Duncan. Thanks again for a great time. Hope the lads are getting on well with their Yachtmaster training. All the best David.

It was a pleasure to put David in touch with the owner of the Hallberg Rassy for the ARC 2018.

RYA Competent Crew Courses and Weekend Sailing with Barcelona Sailing School Palamos, L'Escala, Port Olimpic.

Nicky, Niki and husband John 
Hi Susie
So sorry not to have seen you last weekend but I just wanted to drop you a line to tell you that we loved every minute. We had a blast!!
Both Jon and I loved the whole experience and Charlie has now lead us on the road of a long and hopefully enjoyable path to learn more.
We had the weather, which we know was fortuitous, and we felt Charlie was just a terrific teacher. Aurora was a wonderful boat to learn on - as I say we both loved it and we will be back!!
Thanks again for making it possible for us to split the course into 2 weekends  - that was just so very helpful with work commitments.
We look forward to catching up again

Kind regards
Nicky (Nicky Bennett-Baggs)

Hi Susie,
Thank you, I had a great time. Steve (RYA Instructor) sets a very good example. There’s so much for me to learn and I’d like to do this as soon as possible.  I should have emphasised that I do very much appreciate the flexibility that you demonstrated, since I booked my course well over a year ago, and that I intend to take as many of my future courses with your school.

Thanks again, Peter Henderson

Christian Lamer and Simon Ferrier with BOS
Hi Mark and Susie,

Many thanks, I arrived back just before midnight on Friday, tired but it was a smooth drive back. It was a great week, lots of good comradery and Steve was an excellent tutor. Friday afternoon's sail back from L'Escala when the wind picked up was a great finish to the week. I got lots out of the week and learnt all the things I wanted to do to start some sailing on yachts with the family this summer. I am interested in doing the coastal skipper, probably next year and will keep in touch.

Kind regards, Simon (Barcelona Sailing School) RYA Day Skipper Feb 2017
