Commercial yachtmasters pass with flying colours

2012 Commercial yachtmaster course has come to a close and with fantastic results. All pass with honours, a great achievment for all so well done to Ger, Vanessa, Julien, Ciaran, Billy and Micheal,

Heres a flavour of what they had to say:

Niall and Gail.

I had a fantastic sailing experience with West cork Sailing.The
training that i received was very practical and world class.I`ve
learned new skills that will stand to me my whole sailing career.You
guys were super with all of the support that you gave me .Adrigole is
a beautiful place and the waters in the south coast of ireland was the
best location for me to train as a yachtmaster. Oh the cook is good

All the best


I did the Yacht Master course 2011/2012, I had just moved to Ireland from Germany and then decided to do the course. I have never sailed before and therefore it was a whole new experience for me, as well as being the only girl on the boat. Niall was a great Instructor so I caught up quite quickly. We had to learn a lot over the last couple of month, but that didn't stop us of having a lot of fun. When we finally did the exam, I felt well prepared.
I'm really going to miss the time on Jessy.

Hi Niall,

Thoroughly enjoyed the course.The location made sailing down in west cork both challenging and exciting. I learnt so much during the 15 weeks and gave me a real taste of life at sea...ready to tackle round the world cruise!!!

Dear Niall & Gaill
A very big thanks for the last few definitely was a fun an different way to spend a few months.
we didn't have the best luck with the weather but it did give us the best preparation for rough sea's, winds and what ever will be thrown at us in the real world.
do we did get the odd day that could be confused with the med.
over all felt very confident going into the c.y. exam with all the training we received and the examiner was very pleased with all the knowledge and sailing skills we had.
thanks for everything and best of luck for the future

Commercial yachtmasters final weeks

The final weeks for the exams and the guys are looking chilled. Weather was a mixed bag from cold snow capped peaks to balmy spinnaker runs. Pictures say it all!
