I am your point of contact with the School and will usually deal with training phone enquiries personally. If you need to discuss any of our training or where it would best suit you to take it then I am the person to speak to. It is a fact of life now that most of you choose email as your primary communication and you will receive a prompt reply. If you don’t please assume we have not received your request and do try again.

If you need advice on the most suitable training for you and which location to take it in then please do call me. I will give you the best advice I can and given that I am a RYA Yachtmaster Instructor it will be tailored to the training you want powerboat or sail.

Yes, we are sometimes very busy with enquiries and I still do keep my hand in teaching out on the water, so an email request will usually be answered by return from the office. If you need to speak with me personally ask for a return call or call me on +34 629 881 923 or +34 972 662 494

In these very difficult times keep safe.

My family are residents of Gibraltar we are very proud to be able to deliver the training we do further afield. This includes our MCA Stcw 10 Basic Safety Training. We deliver these courses in Barcelona, Majorca, UK and Antibes where students complete a MCA Course they receive a MCA Certificate. Our aim is to deliver to you the best training we can and that includes using professional training partners. We understand our customers in the maritime industry are worldwide seafarers and can’t all visit us in Barcelona or Gibraltar. RYA Training Courses are delivered at our Barcelona Palamos Base. We provide Fast Track, Mile Building and Qualifying Passages and additional training from our other bases.

I have a passion for the sea and spend much of my life out on the water. I am also a PADI Diver and when I have time, spend many hours below the surface. We have an excellent Fast Track PADI Divemaster program with our partners in Menorca and Barcelona for those of you who enjoy the undersea world for leisure or work. Our PADI Chief Instructor also teaches sail so many of you have already met him on the surface.

There are many companies to choose from for your training. Some will chase you with follow up calls and emails, a few will spend most of their time drawing comparisons between how good they think they are compared to other RYA Recognised Training Centres. Remember the RYA don’t rate schools, they inspect them all equally to ensure the standards are the same and maintained every year to ensure you, the customer receives professional service and training. We’ll deliver the information you need but we won’t pester you with follow up phone calls. We have Fast Track students here who still receive phone calls half way through a course they started weeks ago. We promise we won’t add you to an email list or post you on Face book!!!

We promise to answer your enquiries promptly and give you the best training possible. I am always happy to answer any questions you may have about our training or offer students references both past and present should they be needed during your careers.

Finally, if we get it wrong, our promise to you is a full or part refund of your course. All we ask is that you raise any problems you may have at the outset and give us the opportunity to put it right. We want you to enjoy your training with us and experience the beautiful locations we sail in. My Instructors are all professional RYA and MCA qualified and their purpose is to share their love of the sea with you.

If you need to discuss any aspect of your training or any of the courses we offer, please ask me!

Many thanks to all of our customers who sailed with us last year we hope to see you again soon.

Enjoy your time on the water.
