Matt is not only a very knowledgeable and experienced skipper but through his personality and charisma has an amazing way of transmitting above and beyond what you would normally learn in a safe, relaxing and friendly manner.
Every evening when leaving the deck, I had the sensation that I had finished a sailing trip with a friend, who had the ability to pass on him knowledge and passion about sailing to me through hands on experience and activities whilst always ensuring we are safe and had fun. Since our last sailing trip I have not stopped recommending Matt to friends who seek an experienced skipper or like to know more about sailing.
Thank you Matt and sail with you soon”
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.
I completed the course alongside others taking both a RYA Day Skipper and Start Yachting Course. I felt all courses were taught alongside each other with incredible efficiency and all were aimed at the right level. I would feel confident being taught by Matthew to take either of these courses.
I really cannot recommend Matthew’s instruction enough for an informative and enjoyable sailing experience.

We would highly recommend Matthew both as instructor and as skipper. My 22 years old daughter and I sailed with Mathew in spring 2019 in order to get out RYA day skipper certificate and we loved it! We found him a clear, collaborative and supportive instructor, even if demanding. He could communicate very clearly and made us feel at ease and safe under any condition.
A friendly instructor with a relaxed but professional approach to teaching. Matt has a huge amount of knowledge and experience. Me and my daughter went on to gain our RYA qualifications and I wouldn’t hesitate recommending Matt. Steve and Anna, Manchester.
Matt’s love of the ocean and sailing is infectious. His combined attention to detail and relaxed manner was a perfect balance to learn in. Captain Matt all the way!
