  26. Kyle Jones

    Instructor was extremely calm and straight forward. Right balance of fun and serious. Clearly very knowledgeable and experienced. Teaching style was very hands on and instructor was very open to suggestions, questions and a chat. Excellent 2 day course getting real hands on with a powerboat. Going from nervous at the wheel to confidently manoeuvring the vessel in tight spaces and at speed.

  27. Tudor Sartain

A great course that instilled confidence and was fantastically taught. Lots of practical hands on experience and Stuart could answer anything we asked. Would definitely recommend!

    Calmly taught, allowed us to make errors but guided us how to resolve and avoid making the same mistakes again. Very knowledgeable.
    Right level of chatty to seriousness. Happy to answer any questions no matter how silly we thought they were.
    Great course. Stuart is a credit to SWMA. Took me from never being at the helm to comfortably doing 180 degree turns in a small area, making pilotage plans and negotiating estuaries.
