RYA Competent Crew Courses and Weekend Sailing with Barcelona Sailing School Palamos, L'Escala, Port Olimpic.

Nicky, Niki and husband John 
Hi Susie
So sorry not to have seen you last weekend but I just wanted to drop you a line to tell you that we loved every minute. We had a blast!!
Both Jon and I loved the whole experience and Charlie has now lead us on the road of a long and hopefully enjoyable path to learn more.
We had the weather, which we know was fortuitous, and we felt Charlie was just a terrific teacher. Aurora was a wonderful boat to learn on - as I say we both loved it and we will be back!!
Thanks again for making it possible for us to split the course into 2 weekends  - that was just so very helpful with work commitments.
We look forward to catching up again

Kind regards
Nicky (Nicky Bennett-Baggs)

Hi Susie,
Thank you, I had a great time. Steve (RYA Instructor) sets a very good example. There’s so much for me to learn and I’d like to do this as soon as possible.  I should have emphasised that I do very much appreciate the flexibility that you demonstrated, since I booked my course well over a year ago, and that I intend to take as many of my future courses with your school.

Thanks again, Peter Henderson

Hi Mark and Susie,

Many thanks, I arrived back just before midnight on Friday, tired but it was a smooth drive back. It was a great week, lots of good comradery and Steve was an excellent tutor. Friday afternoon's sail back from L'Escala when the wind picked up was a great finish to the week. I got lots out of the week and learnt all the things I wanted to do to start some sailing on yachts with the family this summer. I am interested in doing the coastal skipper, probably next year and will keep in touch.

Kind regards, Simon (Barcelona Sailing School) RYA Day Skipper Feb 2017

John and Carolyn Pass their RYA Competent Crew and RYA Day Skipper Courses with Barcelona Sailing School (BOS)

John, Nate and Carolyn aboard BOS Training Yacht
Hiya Susie,
It was a genuine pleasure to meet you and Mark; your hospitality is second to none. Carolyn and I were sad to leave on Friday because by then we felt like part of a family. Thank you very much for the meals you cooked for the guys; each one was lovely and relished by all. They were also a great morale booster. Now I think everything we’ve covered would be consolidated and drilled in if we chartered a boat fairly soon, while it’s still in our heads. What a dilemma. I’ll have to look into chartering one of your boats a little more and give it some thought. We’d like to go back to Palamos; we felt comfortable there. It’s also got the added benefit that if we turn out to be terrible Day Skippers we can blame you. :-) Well, we can blame Steve (BOS RYA Instructor) at least. BTW, Steve was great. You’ve got a good guy there.

AdiĆ³s. Good luck. Take care. And I hope to see you again soon. John and Carolyn Hamilton RYA Competent Crew and RYA Day Skipper Practical Courses 24 Jan - 3rd Feb 2017.

Guy and Karina RYA Competent Crew
Hi Susie,

Thanks for your message, we both really enjoyed our week and would definitely recommend BOS.

No doubt we will back in touch or back to see you in the future.

In the meantime it's back to rainy cold England until we can get to do some more sailing - which may involve us buying a boat sooner than originally planned.

Please pass on thanks to Steve, he's a great instructor and made the week very enjoyable.

All the best
