What our students say


Gordon Syme is very clearly, a highly accomplished, knowledgeable and extensively experienced RYA Yachtmaster, examiner and course presenter. He presents information in a very interesting, practical, logical and easy to understand way (interspersed with some humour to keep students “on the ball”). I would recommend (and have done) Yachtmaster to anyone from those who want to start sailing, right though to RYA Yachtmaster. Thank you Gordon Syme!!!!!

Amazing 5 day Day Skipper training with Yachtmaster.com.au. Learned a lot while having a good fun with a bunch of fantastic new friends on the boat. We had rain, strong wind, light wind, sun and clouds, night sailing and boat handling, all that in a good team. Thank you, Gordon Syme for all the fun and knowledge!

To everyone that may want to discover sailing, or learn the right things in the right way (having fun, and safe). I would also recommend it to everybody that I’ve ever sailed with, as I’m sure most of them would learn things during the course, at the very least they’d learn how to teach by seeing you doing it, as the way you explain things are much better than most people’s abilities.

Would we recommend Gordon? Absolutely! To anybody who wants to learn to sail. From beginner to those experienced sailers who wants to climb to the next level. As soon as this COVID-19 business is over and we can return to the water we will be arranging our next skills session with Gordon.
