So, my contract in Italy on the 76 footer has finally come to an end and I am now back on Jersey full time.
Operating as a true freelance captain and RYA instructor again, I am now fully available to offer a whole range of skipper services to anyone who needs help building the confidence you need to safely take your friends and family out boating with you.
- If you want to brush up on some rusty skills or you simply want a skipper to handle the boat while you enjoy the ride, then I’m your man
- If you are studying the theory and it’s not making sense, then I’m your man
- If you need an ICC (International Certificate of Competence) assessment, then I’m your man
- If you need your boat delivering somewhere, then I’m your man
- If you want to take clients out to give them a good time, then I’m your man
I’ve recently taught two separate Yachtmaster Theory candidates who were taking distance learning courses and they both tell me that they truly benefited from spending a few days on a one to one basis with me prior to taking their exams. So whether that’s you or you’d just prefer to learn about the theory behind navigation, safety and etiquette on the water, give me a call and we can discuss times to suit you.
With summer truly on the way, it’s time to get the boat washed off and start planning those trips. However, if it’s been a while since you were last out on the water, you might be feeling a little low in the confidence stakes. Spend a few days buzzing around the marina with me and your confidence will come racing back and you’ll be good to go. If you are intending to visit France this summer and you don’t have an ICC, then I can take you through the requirements and assess you as we go – much easier than taking a test I’m sure!
Perhaps you just want to sit back and let someone else take the strain. Leave the driving to me and you can enjoy the time relaxing with your family and friends instead of worrying about tide times, mooring on an unfamiliar berth or going to that marina you’ve never been to before. Impress your clients with a trip out on your boat and let a professional captain and crew make it work seamlessly for you.
I have many, many years of world wide cruising experience and teaching under my belt – let me share this with you and give you the confidence to properly enjoy your boating.
