"We would just like to say again what a fantastic holiday you gave us. I couldn't begin to decide what we enjoyed most, learning a bit about sailing, the good company, the non-stop music, the brilliant places you took us to swim and explore, the restaurants you suggested for evening meals......I could go on and on, but I guess you know"…!!!
Loads of love Julia Weston and family ( Cruising holiday)
…."We spent an amazing week on Blue Planet, Rick Driscoll's wonderful boat. He mentored us in the practical aspects of the knowledge and skill requirements of the Day Skipper course with panache - just the right balance of discipline and laxity that made sure that we all learnt to the best of our abilities. Successfully, as it happens: we all came off the boat with our certificates, thanks to Rick's careful instruction".
