Non-confident Day Skipper to Aspiring Yachtmaster Offshore

Added by: Natalie J Mansfield from Playa de Arinaga, Gran Canaria, Spain
I approached Atlantic Islands Training Centre (Aistrac) in January 2017 to see if the school and the instructor could help me go from a non-confident RYA Day Skipper to a very confident RYA Offshore Yachtmaster Skipper. I can say with bags of confidence and pride in myself and with a lot of thanks and gratitude to Keith that I am almost ready for my Yachtmaster Assessment. I have sailed with Keith most of the summer and seen some amazing places around the Canary Islands. During this time I have built on previous skills in how to manage and run the deck, developed my knowledge in Navigation techniques and how to deal with situations such as fog! Learnt different techniques for creating good passage plans and pilotage plans for both day and night sailing.Also, I've grown in confidence to sail at night and trust my own judgement more in what I am doing. Finally, I've had the opportunity to meet loads of interesting people and to see what life at sea is about. Thanks Keith for all your support so far. Natalie.
