Brilliant day of sailing with Alf on the Hobie Cat. Alf’s tuition was super, and I really appreciated the time he took to find out what my level of sailing was, which meant the tuition was pitched on the areas that I wanted to improve.

What a fantastic day! Alf’s boats are really conveniently located in the centre of Sairee Beach. I went out with him in the Lazer from 9-3, with a lunch break. I sailed when I was younger, but a long gap since then, so I wasn’t sure how much I’d remember. We had a relaxed start. My six year old learned some knots and I got to quietly revise at the same time. We covered rigging the boat, and then headed out for two great sails. The wind was relatively light, but no bother as the Lazer is great in a light breeze, and my poor jibing technique didn’t cause us any problems. Lots learned and Alf is a great instructor, and good company. If we’d discovered this earlier in the week, we’d have gone back for another session in the Hobie Cat.

We rented the boat for the whole day with 11 of us, including two 11-year olds and a 6 year old. Fantastic day out that was kept flexible. Alf was a great host and took us to 3 great dive sites. Lunch and food was excellent and we finished the day seeing the sun go down. Highly recommended if you want a day doing your own thing without being committed to a fixed itinerary.

Alf is a great teacher and my daughter is much more knowledgeable now than I was after an RYA course. He brings a wealth of experience to his teaching and this makes a huge difference. My daughter (age 11) had lots of fun and loved her time on the water and spends her evening doing knots while reading now! I would recommend this for adults too. Beautiful place to learn to sail, and Alf is really easy to learn from. (German - speaks absolutely fluent English).

Thank you very much for the excellent review. It was my pleasure teaching your daughter. Unfortunately there are not more people like you coming to Koh Tao who appreciate our small boats on offer and this branch will be discontinued. However, I hope to see you again - perhaps on a cruise on our yacht Freedom Fargo. Best regards Alf
