Dale

"My RYA Cruising Instructor “Instruction and Assessment” week with Urban Truant not only provided me with some key skills and tools to go out and be an Instructor but also gave me more confidence in the delivery of the various briefings and demonstrations as there was lots of excellent guidance and support provided during the week.

The week was nearly all “boat based” so there were lots of opportunity to practice the techniques hands-on and the environment was further enhanced with individual cabins and a very well provisioned galley."
