Thanks to Nick and You and Sea for a great weekend.   Nick is an excellent instructor and a definite asset to your company and we could not have wished for better.  His knowledge is amazing as was his instructional ability and he made the two us us feel completely at ease and extremely confident by the end of the 2 days.   Now we feel that we can finally go on and enjoy our boat and it's all thanks to Nick.   If we decide to do any further courses in the future or change our boat, we will be sure to get in touch
