Marcus led a very informative 14 session online course. I found it most enjoyable and will use many of the lessons learned in the future. Would I recommend it ? Absolutely.....

This course was undertaken via Zoom calls twice a week with homework at weekends. And then 2 tests, chartwork against the clock solo and a group test covering the remainder of the course. Marcus evidently has a deep knowledge of sailing and, notwithstanding conducting lessons over Zoom, was able to convey a combination of charisma and technical detail to the group. He is a patient and approachable tutor who can spot the pitfalls and traps that typical students make in advance in order to provide the them with confidence to navigate round them. It was an excellent course and I look forward to completing the practical part with him on the water in due course.

The course was well structured and engagingly presented by Marcus who has a clear passion for sailing. The supporting course material was excellent and worked well for an online course. One of the highlights of the whole lock-down period!

Marcus went through the syllabus in excellent detail and visual aids were great. Happy to go over things more than once to ensure you've understood and able to give multiple explanations to aid understanding. Thoroughly recommend the Day Skipper Theory Course with Marcus

Fantastic course and the perfect way to get a good sailing fix whilst we can't go on the water. Marcus is a highly dedicated, patient and inspiring teacher and I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to sail or navigate, it's the perfect foundation and Marcus makes it easy to understand. Thanks Marcus - will miss the Tuesday and Thursday evenings!

Marcus delivered a superb digital, online version of his classroom training for Day Skipper Theory. It is no mean feat to transform the classroom teaching onto a Zoom class and Marcus did this brilliantly, keeping us all engaged and progressing through the coursework to a successful outcome! This is a teaching method for the future, bridging the gap between the classroom and online only courses. Well done Marcus, it was a pleasure to meet you and thanks for getting me to the point I could pass the course. Cheers Andy
