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.”
