  • I did my Yachtmaster Prep and examination with Sea Jay's in January 2017, at a time when my usual sailing school and their yachts were laid up. After sending my first email to Sea Jay's I received a very fast response. Fiona is very friendly and accommodating indeed. The instructor Carl, less so - he just could not stop talking, making it difficult to get a word in edgeways. He did not seem amenable to discussing ideas. Granted, he has done several transatlantic voyages on larger vessels but he was not open to discussing or sharing experiences for smaller yachts such as springing off. It was difficult to even give any proper explanation for his incessant talking and interjections. He insisted his way of springing off is the only way to achieve 360 degrees, which is impossible anyway and I only needed 40 degrees to leave a pontoon! Adding insult to injury, he even said to the beginners that I was "uncoachable". I have been trained by instructors with over 40 years experience without issues. At least the examiner was very good.
  • My friends and I have just completed our Day Skipper Practical with Sea Jays. It was a great experience. The training was professional yet fun and Fiona (the owner) was great. I would DEFINITELY take another course with them.... Highly recommended.
  • Love love LOVE these guys. Helped me soooo much. Was always interested in sailing but never thought I'd be any good at it. Massive thanks to Fiona who was such a joy to train with and made everything so achievable. Would HIGHLY recommend :)
  • I am so happy with Fiona at Sea Jays Sailing School. She told me that I would enjoy the course, and I very did very much. I'm just gutted I didn't do this sooner. Definitely recommending to all my pals and now I'm looking to buy my first boat. Thanks so much Fiona!!!
  • Me and my dad did a sailing course with Fiona a little while back, honestly one of the best experiences I've ever had. She's a fab teacher and was very accommodating with my lack of sailing experience! Highly recommended :)
