"Excellent time practicing all kinds of mooring, pontoon and buoy approaching, prop walk and wash, spinning the boat, mooring down and against the wind and tide. We had Owen as our instructor who did an excellent job not only instructing, but also matching very well the difficulty of exercises up with the crew skills and keeping the team spirit high up all the time. Owen is one of the best instructors I have sailed with and Close Quarters Boat Handling course is well thought through and quite useful. Thank you everyone at Hamilton Sailing".

“An excellent weekend thanks to the skipper, brilliant tutoring learned a lot plus gained confidence again. Also great company”
