The Nomad sailing team run a very professional RYA Day Skipper training course. The instructor (Paul) informed, demonstrated and tested a wide range of practical skills as well as being a great cook! Highly recommend Nomad for all RYA courses.

An excellent intensive yachtmaster prep course and exam, expertly targeted at the areas we needed to work on . This got us successfully through the yachtmaster coastal exam (also arranged by Nomad). Another great Nomad success. Highly recommended.
