Student comments and testimonials


"Thank you for the Offshore theory course. I really couldn't have asked for a better tutor and environment to learn in. I was extremely surprised with the depth of the course material and the teaching methods throughout the 11 day course and I will definitely advise commercial and recreational Masters or trainees to further their knowledge by enrolling with Excel Yachting."


Sam Metcalf

"Terry’s knowledge about all of the elements required by RYA for the Yachtmaster course is second to none. Some people can 'do' - but not teach, others can teach but not 'do'. Terry can 'do' both very well. "


Bob Wiggins
RYA Yachtmaster Instructor (Sail)


"My first week of Terry's relaxed, reassuring and expert instruction resulted in my gaining my Day Skipper certificate, followed by a wonderful mile catcher week of gloriously confident sailing. A great balance of holiday, instruction, and making lasting friendships with like-minded fellow sailors.'


Karen Barry

"I have taken and passed both the RYA Competent Crew and RYA Practical Day Skipper courses with Terry. He is a fantastic sailing instructor and I am more than delighted to recommend him to anyone who seriously wants to learn to sail, significantly improve their sailing skills and thoroughly enjoy the course.
