We are in the process of buying a yacht so we, as a family, decided to do the right thing and take lessons on how to sail it correctly. We are all novices in the sailing department so five of us went out today with Peter Scallan and we had a great day. He asked us up front what we wanted from the day and at this stage I feel we have been given a good base to build from when we decide to take further tuition. Peter is a great instructor and seems to have an intuitive feel for what each person is capable of and adapts accordingly. On top of that he's just a really nice guy and we got on very well with him. The family were discussing the day over a few pints (as you do), and I think we all agreed we left the berth in the morning as a family, but we returned the boat in the evening as a crew and that was all down to the tuition from Peter. In addition to all the sailing, we anchored up and had a delicious lunch cooked from scratch by Jo and as the main cook and bottle washer in my own house I have to say bravo chef. I highly recommend the professional but relaxed setup at Sailcork.
