Customer feedback

Rita Atkinson said: "I have just attended the Long Range Radio course, and I have to say I really enjoyed it a great deal. I was a little apprehensive before attending, as I have not had much experience of working with radios, and expected everyone to know so much more than me, but the on-line learning was terrific...it gave me a knowledge base to do the 4 day course, and gave me a lot of confidence. Bob is a great teacher and pitched the course very well for all levels of understanding, and is a very patient teacher. If any women are considering the course but feel that it may not be for them, I would encourage them to give it a go...yes you will be in the minority, but Bob explains things very well, and the course is structured perfectly to give you confidence in using the radio, and a knowledge of the frequencies to use. Thank you very much for an enjoyable and very useful experience, I would recommend this course to any one who is considering long distance sailing."
