I would like to sincerely thank RUSailing for the recent Yachtmaster Exam Preparation course, which helped me to pass the exam. From first email contact months ago to leaving the boat after the exam last week, I was impressed with this school. Jules' administration leading up to the week was flexible and thorough. After dates were agreed the money transfers were easy, and the pre-course information was timely and useful. Rob was my instructor for the tough week of preparation. Under Rob's instruction and the many challenges he set, I was able to brush up on some rusty theory topics, fine-tune some practical skills and learn some new skills and theory, giving me the confidence to take the examination at the end of the week. It was a fun week. SY Annecy (Jeanneau 37) was an ideal boat for this training week. She is fully equipped and very well presented. There was more than enough food and drinks for lunches and snacks each day. Annecy also served as comfortable accommodation allowing me to study the boat and her equipment, revise theory topics and practice chartwork long after the training day was finished. I would certainly recommend RUSailing.com to anyone who is looking for a well-organised sail training program at any level. Thanks again Rob and Jules.

Undertook Day Skipper course with Rusailing this September. Cannot recommend highly enough. Great boat to learn on (and to stay on), fantastic instruction, and clear, prompt, and informative communications before the course. Will be back.

We just completed two weeks of training with rusailing (starting as novices and doing the RYA Competent Crew + Day Skipper courses), with instructor Rob on yacht Annecy. We were hugely impressed by the entire experience and would recommend rusailing to anyone with any interest at all in learning to sail (including at more advanced levels though we cannot speak directly to that). All of the five star reviews on this page are thoroughly merited. - The organisation and advance communication by Jules were top notch and super clear, including not least giving helpful explanations and offering different options in light of the pandemic. - The food options were delicious and carefully took into account dietary needs. - The yacht was pristinely maintained and seemed ideal as a training yacht. - We couldn't have been more impressed by the excellence of Rob's sailing knowledge and teaching (and are confident that he would only choose other instructors of similar quality). It genuinely felt like a privilege to have been able to spend two weeks learning with him. Everything was explained patiently and very clearly, and in multiple different ways, taking into account different learning styles, including demonstrating how it worked in practice to help it stick. No matter how many questions we asked he had detailed answers for everything, and delivered them in a way which built effectively on our growing knowledge base as the courses went on. We really can't say enough about what a brilliant learning experience it was. - The Algarve is simply beautiful with good northerly winds coming in from the Atlantic (and on low wind days the teaching can be tailored so as to make good use of the time). Lagos Marina is a great home base. The sea swimming is very nice! - Our tip: we paid a bit extra to have the yacht to the two of us mostly to be "Covid safe", but we thought it was thoroughly worthwhile and would recommend to anyone interested in a more intensive learning experience (plus the benefits of a bit more flexibility). Rob and Jules are lovely people running a great small business and we were delighted to support them. With any luck we will be back!

All information was clear prior to booking and also in-line with expectations after booking. The school was always responsive to our questions and proactive about getting us prepared and informed prior to arriving to the course. The boat was very well equipped and no material was noted to be missing, it also had adequate provisions and with a much cozy and comfortable atmosphere. The tuition was very complete and well-paced to cover the course syllabus and no problems were encountered during the course All together a great course with our instructor Richard, a great teacher that is always willing to answer questions, challenges his students in a constructive way and always willing to allow students give something a try while coaching and ensuring safety and some more extras given out by Rob on to perfect fine tuning sails and maximizing wind power. An overall great experience with a very professional team and school.
