This time last week I was just getting to know my fellow shipmates as we set off from Palma marina for a week’s Day Skipper course.
In my case (having already done a Competent Crew course in Alicante and realising that I was nowhere near ready for the next level) all I wanted to do was spend a week on a boat in beautiful surrounding in good company.
Well Aigua Sea School delivered both my requests 100% and I have to say it was one of the best weeks I’ve had in a very long time. My fellow crew mates were all fantastic company and we were truly sad to have to say goodbye to one another at the end of the week.
We were very lucky to have a combination of beautiful weather and enough wind for some great sailing plus the highlight for me which was a magical night sail to Andratx.
Our Captain Jon Tyrell was incredibly thorough and his passion for all things sailing was obvious to see. I feel sure he also learnt a lot from spending a week with us 50 plus somethings!!
For anyone wondering if Aigua is the right sea school for them I can honestly say the week was life affirming on many levels and I couldn’t have asked for more.
I shall be back!
