RORC Caribbean 600

It was a great adventure and experience. Feedback is nothing but great. Andy, Paul, Neil, and Jenn are class acts. Boat in great shape, clean, and competitive. Great experience on and off the boat. Thanks for everything. I would definitely sail with GYR again.

YM Ocean Passage: Gibraltar to Canary Islands

I had an amazing time! Over 700nm covered and lots of sextant sights taken. Neil, our skipper, was outstanding. I would highly recommend Global Yacht Training.

We had an amazing time! Neil and Katy, along with your Trainee, Adam were absolute pros both on and off the water. We felt very lucky to be in their charge. A great result, challenging chilled but competitive week - the 1st in Class was a bonus!
