"I can honestly say that I would not be using or enjoying my yacht Llama nearly as much as l do now without his help and guidance. On the boat management side he has made Llama so much more user friendly and ensured that it has maintained its value over the years. I love his 5 minute rule, if the boat is not ready to sail 5 minutes after arrival then you need to simplify things.

"We are happy with the speed you are pushing us...we believe in getting the fundamentals and especially safety done well.  We are pleased that you are so focused on these aspects and making sure we have them in our kit bag."

"Our personal skill set was basic but after 4 sessions with Neil, we feel we have progressed in our proficiency and we have gained greater confidence in our own abilities, Neil has an easy going mentoring style which instils confidence. His training style is such that you do everything - Neil steps in and takes physical control only when absolutely necessary. The learning experience is also great fun...We can't recommend Neil highly enough. "
Meet Greg Baker...
As part of the mentor program, he achieved his goal to skipper his Hanse 415 to Hamilton Island and had a great time doing it!
"It was a real life changing experience for me. I wish I'd done more of this years ago. I've made a huge jump forwards in my sailing thanks to your excellent tuition, patience, knowledge, dilligence and practical experience. The use of technology, both on and off the boat, also was massively benificial to my understanding of sailing."
