STOP PRESS=STOP PRESS: March2014. I received this testimonial from one of my recent Comp Crew students; 'It was clear from the start that Ralph is both passionate and knowledgeable about the art of sailing. He is also patient and goes out of his way to ensure that his students not only understand the 'what' of sailing, but also the 'why', and how to do it safely. And all this through practical, hands on experience, at times, one on one. I am confident that I am now competent to crew. My next step is to gain experience, putting into practice the lessons Ralph has taught me until they become intuitive rather than cognitive, and then to go for my skippers ticket.To those who think that age is an obstacle, I am 71 years old, have only just started sailing, and am now committed to buying my own boat Thank you, Ralph, for showing me what is possible, and how much fun it is. I shall be back for the next steps. ' Chris Beautement. March 2014
