"We found the course provided invaluable advice and guidance which was geared towards the needs and aspirations of the participants. Kevin was extremely knowledgeable and presented the programme in a very entertaining manner. His knowledge enabled him to range widely across the subject of sea safety. The practical demonstrations on the boat and in the pool provided valuable experience which is often not gained in advance of a real situation. We cannot fault the programme at all, on the contrary, we would recommend it highly to anyone."
