Doing a course with Dawn has really  improved my confidence on the water. An excellent instructor.

I passed my Yacht Master practical course as a direct result of Dawns expert instruction and  I am now a  commercial skipper myself

One of the best courses i have ever been on. I did not know first aid could be so much fun.
