" A couple of weeks after the course we bought a 8.5m yacht and sailed from Redcliffe to Coffs Harbour. "

" Dan was very patient, supportive and accommodating during my Day Skipper course. A couple of weeks after the course we bought a 8.5m yacht and sailed from Redcliffe to Coffs Harbour. We successfully navigated the inside passage of South Stradbroke Island, the Tweed, Yamba and Ballina bars, and have joined our local Twighlight racing. He is a great story teller, helping us learn from other peoples mistakes and have lots of fun. "
