Start Yachting – Well done Christine and Kassie!

Christine and Kassie 

Here are Christine (11) and Kassie (7) from Russia proudly showing their Start Yachting certificates. They were awarded these by skipper, George, for their participation in a sailing week we ran for their father, Ray Church.

Ray and his wife, Elena, completed their Day Skipper and Competent Crew respectively with us in 2007. Ray followed this with a trip on our Cyclades milebuilder in October.

He asked us to arrange a week’s holiday this June to give a gentle introduction to sailing for his daughters. They did so well that they earned their first sailing certificates. I think we will be seeing them on board again as they thoroughly enjoyed it.

The week was a first for us in that we pre-positioned a yacht in Corinth so that the family could experience a trip through the spectacular Corinth Canal at the start of their holiday. (Unfortunately we cannot do this for every course!)

See Ray’s message below:

“Attached is the pic of the girls with their new certificates.  They were very pleased.  George did a great job.  A real host and a instructor.  We had a very nice time.  We have other pics, but this is one of the better ones.

Thanks truly for organising everything!

Ray & Elena.”
