    Completed my Day Skipper Practical with FSoS, the quality of instruction was excellent, delivered with patience and good humour.
    The facilities and equipment were good. I would highly recommend.

    Exceeded all expectations - Day Skipper 5-day course. The instructor (Mike) was attentive, great company and a superb teacher. He trained us to a higher level than I would have expected for Day Skipper. The boat was clean and all worked well. I really can find nothing to fault, at all. And Falmouth is obviously a great place to sail - we berthed/moored at some fantastic, peaceful spots surrounded by some of the most beautiful coastal scenery you can imagine and usually close to excellent traditional pubs with great Cornish beer.
