Testimonials

Jolyan 

I have done my RYA Day Skipper practical, Yachtmaster Theory and recently crossed the Atlantic as training for Yachtmaster Ocean and qualifying passage with Trysail. All the courses and sail training I have done with them was very professional, safe and informative. 

As a RYA Dinghy instructor I am aware of the pressure to cover all elements of a given course in a time frame, and all the instructors that have trained me at Trysail managed the time they had very well and were very engaging and informed.

In September 2012 I did an RYA Day Skipper practical course with Jay Byrde which was the best introduction, to skippering and how to manage a happy boat, you could have hoped for. By the end of September 2013, I was preparing to cross the Atlantic with Andy Grant, the Principal/Director of Trysail on the 47ft Category 0 coded ketch 'Olympus'.

On the crossing, Andy managed the boat amazingly well and got the whole crew involved in running the boat with great food and good company to top off an already great trip. On the crossing, Andy introduced all of us to the art of Astro Nav.

I cannot recommended Trysail enough.

Peigi 

For a big adventure in a professional boat but with comfort and good food high on the agenda - I recommend an Atlantic Crossing with Andy on yacht Olympus. From the cold, wet and wind of Cornwall or from the warmth of Tenerife, you will be in a supportive crew and with a skipper willing to get you involved and who is fully involved himself. From chasing the sun with a sextant to jumping in the ocean to fishing on the line, to raising the Spinnaker or making running repairs, you will be happily engaged.

The challenge of weather - big seas to flat seas,  cold British rain to warm tropical rain, crisp mornings to hot steady sunshine - is part of the great fascination of this voyage. Sunrise, sunset, luminosity on the tips of the waves, dolphins dipping under the bow, turtles paddling by, birds appearing over the horizon and settling on the boat. Nature's wonders at every turn.

Go for it!
