Wendy – Competent Crew – “Very good, everything was explained clearly and with a lot of patience, constructive comment, positive attitude.”
Anne – RYA Basic Skills – Level 2 – “Excellent. Tanya was very calm, incredibly helpful and positive. I now feel safe on the water and ready to learn more. Wish we had done a weekly course. I am definitely coming back”
Emma – RYA Basic Skills – Level 2 – “Very good, very kind and calm. There wasn’t any moment where I felt unsafe. Very entertaining. I really enjoyed this course and wish we had more days to spend out sailing. I learnt a lot. I feel confident on the yacht now.”
Louise – RYA Start Yachting – “Excellent. First class learning. Will do more”.
Kirstin – RYA Competent Crew – “Pippa is a fantastic captain – very calm, instructive and caring. I feel I’ve learnt a lot and would love to go out sailing again immediately! I’ve got the bug which is a result of fantastic tutoring. Highly recommend this course to anyone wanting to learn to sail.”
Heather – RYA Competent Crew – “Excellent! Very knowledgeable, very patient (very patient). Really took the time to ensure we understood and continuously reinforced our learnings. Very intuitive to the student’s needs. Thank you-thank you-thank you! Would recommend!”
Nora – RYA Competent Crew – “Pippa’s instruction was always precise and informative but above all she was happy to repeat as many times as asked or needed”.
Mary – RYA Competent Crew – “Lots of instruction!!! Pippa was kind and patient and we learned a lot. I would now feel confident to sail with friends. Thanks everyone for a great week”.
Victoria – RYA Day Skipper – “Pippa is an excellent instructor – explanations are thorough & clear. Very patient! I learnt so much & am significantly more confident handling the boat. As well as being very instructive, it was also lots of fun. Really enjoyed sailing around the island”.
Kimberley – RYA Day Skipper – “The content instruction on the boat was very helpful. It seemed to be group orientated and positive (i.e. everyone can learn from the points made). I felt that Pippa was very considerate to what every individual needed to focus on and we all could learn it”.
Emma – RYA Day Skipper Theory & Practical Package – “I have never been out on a boat and felt so confident, even in F6 winds and 3m waves! The syllabus was taught at a great pace. Pippa was extremely knowledgeable and patient with practical skills and theoretical knowledge. She taught the course at an outstanding level, which I doubt could be replicated at any RYA Sailing School. I can’t wait to go back to Dubai and practice all the skills I have learnt and come back next year for the Coastal Skipper Practical course! Thank you very much for enriching my knowledge exponentially and giving me such confidence in one of my greatest passions. I will always have fond memories of our time on the water together this summer.”
Laura – RYA/MCA Yachtmaster Preparation – “It was a good week! Pippa handled the group very well given we had a major crew crisis! I am happy I chose Miramar!.” (Laura achieved her Yachtmaster Coastal Certificate having been with us for 7 weeks starting at Day Skipper Practical level).
Maria – Mile & Experience Building – “Pippa is an amazing instructor and mentor – having no previous experience with longer passages there was never a moment where I felt unsafe or worried at all. In these 5 days I have learnt so much and that is thanks to Pippa who never took a break from teaching.”
Samantha – Mile & Experience Building – “Great week out on the water putting into practice a lot of things already learned and learning more. Great to be able to clock 300nm and do two 28 hour sails. Pippa was fab as usual”.
