I completed the RYA Competent Crew course with Matthew in Spring 2019. He is a fantastic instructor who helped to build confidence and teach the course material, whilst also making the course a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Any and all questions I had were answered with clarity and patience and when tested on course content, all feedback was constructive and very helpful.
