I would like to thank you again for taking great care of us this week. You made the Day Skipper course a very pleasant and fun experience at the same time thorough teaching. I have learned a lot and I am very eager to practise now.
As discussed, if you can recommend me an on-line Sailing theory course, I will appreciate.
I hope to see you again on a boat or elsewhere,
Many thanks again take care!

Hi Susie, it's Charlie Hale, just checking in to see if you are all ok and to let you know I just got my first job as a stew, I'm starting beginning of May! Thank you for all of your advice and I'm still going for deckhand but I need to get a season of doing anything first!
Hope everything is going well and that Harry is well to!
Blue Oyster Sailing School is the best intense week I've had. I paid for the prep week and offshore yacht master exam after I failed it twice already. The first day I had help getting to know my crew and the boat which was step by step instruction on how to do the stuff I got wrong on the previous 2 exams. Through the week my Instructor started getting me to understand what it takes to be a skipper and how to control and implement my crew in the best way possible. This helped me so much as this is one of the main things I needed help with. My exam was then organised and I was ready to take it.
I had food prepared for me everyday by Susie and it was perfect as she did good quantities which meant I wasn't worried about food ever. The crew for my exam was awesome as well they were doing their different courses, like Fast Track YM and Day Skipper. This also helped as it gave me the responsibility as skipper to get my crew working the way I wanted which in turn came across on the exam. So all in all I had a fantastic week with some great people and I became a RYA Yachtmaster offshore YM also commercially endorsed (as they signed me in to get the PPR course done on the day after my YM exam as well). Can't recommend this company enough.
