We’re now in early March and we’ve had a fabulous set of exam passes. Do we expect this? Well yes we do. We have a great team of instructors who share our passion for teaching sailing and we take each person’s course development personally. What you’ll never know is how many hours the team have deliberated over the next best stage for a group or an individual, the best instructor pairing to bring out the best for a person and the exact balance between ‘it’s time to go on a distance cruise vs let’s focus on some skills’. This is all the behind the scenes that you’ll never see and never truly appreciate until you get out into the industry and realize the standard you’ve received for yourselves.
Yachtmaster Offshore Pass February 2017
So this year we’ve had the wonderful Wallis pass her Yachtmaster Offshore Sail and is now doing her motor conversion (anther exam due next weekend). She will be our third dual qualified female Yachtmaster Sail & Motor. There are not so many of you out there but jobs specifically ask for female qualified Yachtmasters. Portia who qualified back in 2007 now works as a VTS operator in the Gibraltar Port & Ellie sucesfully followed the Superyacht career path after passing both sail & motor with us in 2008.
Yachtmaster Offshore Passes March 2017
We’ve had Kristien, Harrison and Luis Achieve after a mixture of 8, 14 and 18 weeks – everyone is truly different. On Saturday 11th March 2017 Andy, Will and Dan all passed first time with a combination 7 weeks and 15 weeks training with Allabroad. Andy was limited on tidal experience so did a bespoke half course with us to get his tidal miles and theory up to scratch. Taught in the majority by our full Yachtmaster Instructor team under the careful and watchful eye of Clare and Dave to ensure all were mapping at the right time and getting the training focus they needed in order to succeed.
"Thanks a lot for everything, my feedback couldn't be better: I've to thank you all for making it possible, turning me from zero experience into an Yachtmaster in 18 weeks! The instructors were all great, and I was able to pick the best out of every single one and adapt their own techniques to my own style. I think the instructor's quality was the secret for my success, but also having the opportunity to share my time with different ones." Luis March 2017
"Cheers Allabroad, Ive had a great time here and met a lot of unforgettable people and have a number of amazing memories. Thank you very much Allabroad you have a lot of great instructors to whom I owe my ticket to. Harrison March 2017
"Many thanks to the incredibly dedicated Yachtmaster Instructors who prepared us for the exam, and all the wonderful fellow crew I had the pleasure to share this journey with!" Kristien March 2017
