Feedback from Past PYT Students
Completing their PYT last year was Malcom Lord, from Thurso, and Rob Geisler, from Vermont, USA. Both sum up their experiences below:
“The program includes self sails without an instructor to gain required skippered passages and this was a particular highlight for me. However, I also enjoyed sailing with the range of instructors, in thoroughly testing conditions!” (Malcom Lord).
“I was unable to find a similar comprehensive sailing program in the U.S. and that’s why I chose to go to Cumbrae for my training. The entire RYA Training Scheme is the best I was able to find anywhere” (Rob Geisler).
