Me, my boyfriend and my best friend completed the five levels up to the International Bareboat Skipper Course (Level 5) between September 2018 and January 2019. We started with an introductory class which made us super excited about sailing (I recommended to everybody)!!! After that, we signed up straight away for all the 5 courses. The booking/payment was easy. Melodie and Marc were great with us and there was not a moment where we felt pressured or stressed out. They were awesome trying to accommodate us and our schedules in the best way they could. They are incredibly friendly and easy going. With Aussea, each class was gold and completely different from the one before. Marc is super experienced, and I must say, extremely patient. He was able to understand each of us and to change the way of teaching in base of our different “ways of learning”. I never felt unsafe, he was there with us all the time, ready to ”fix” the little mistake we were making. The learning curve I saw in us was awesome, I almost wouldn’t believe how fast we were learning. Now, at the end of the 5th level I can say that I feel confident jumping on a boat and go sailing around the world. Thank you Aussea, I am sure we will keep in touch for a while. Jadi

Came from the States and spent a week with Marc on the Level 1-4 and the Bareboat Skipper Course. Learned A LOT from a great instructor. From jibbing and tacking in Botany Bay to reverse motor figure-8s, Marc is a great instructor who'll get you up to speed and keep you quite entertained with some witty remarks. Highly recommended!

Everything starts to make sense when you're controlling the boat. I didn't understand much when I was reading about sailing on the internet. I got the point when I actually went to the water with Marc and practice it! I recommend the course to everyone that has a minimum of interest in sailing!!!
