"We had the best time with Salty Sailing. We did a 5 day day-skipper qualification. From the initial enquiry to the course itself, Hugo was brilliant. Great communication and help throughout the booking process, and the course itself was run superbly. Hugo is an excellent teacher, very patient and providing clear explanations, making you feel at ease and ensuring everyone on the boat feels comfortable at all times. Precision (the yacht) is very well kept, clean and has everything you need. Food provided on board was great (always important!). Highly recommend Salty Sailing to anyone, novices to experienced sailors."
