I don't even know where to start. I did my RYA Day Skipper with Go-n-Sail and I could not be more satisfied. The treatment received by both Debbie and Shane was exquisite. The food delicious, the boat in perfect conditions, the hospitality outstanding, Shane's infinite patience despite the long hours amazed me, even when we were all really tired. I could not have had a better experience and I highly recommend everyone that is either starting or want to accumulate experience to go to Ayamonte. The 1-3 ratio gives you time to experience every aspect of what is covered in the syllabus. Both theory and hands on experience is covered. The standards of teaching are so high that by the end of the 5 days your confidence levels are boosted tenfold. I am really grateful to have chosen you guys. Thank you

I recently finished the competent crew course on El Rubicon. Right from my first contact with Debbie to the day I left the boat the service they offered was exceptional. Communication with Debbie was friendly and quick and she went out of her way to answer my questions. I stayed on the boat the night before the course started and Debbie and Shane took us out for some amazing local tapas. El Rubicon was so clean and comfortable and it was great to have my own cabin. Shane was incredibly patient and I felt safe throughout the course. There was plenty of variety with the sailing. Debbie provided beautiful and nutritious meals throughout the course. The biggest draw card for me was the low instructor to student ratio and I was only with one other student. Having had no previous sailing experience this meant that Shane was able to spend plenty of time with me. I'm already trying to work out how I can get back from another course!

I have just returned home from Ayamonte, after spending a second week onboard El Rubicon. The boat was again immaculately prepared and presented by Debbie and Shane. The week provided a great opportunity to sail in challenging conditions, including that important tidal factor. Shane coached in a calm and knowledgable way. His constant stream of good advice, guidance and tips will really help me to be a better sailor moving forward. So if you want a great learning experience, under the watchful eye of an expert trainer, then sign up with Go-n-Sail.

I highly recommend Go-n-Sail Sailing School in Ayamonte. This is a top class sailing school where I did my RYA Day Coastal Skipper practical course. Shane is an experienced, knowledgeable and very patient teacher. The Yacht El Rubicon is a beautiful boat, and is so comfortable and immaculate. Debbie is a superb host, patiently answering questions before the course, ensuring an excellent course, and preparing delicious, healthy food for the crew. There were just 3 students on the course and we had lots of practice. The varied conditions in Southern Spain and Portugal were ideal. Delighted to have found this wonderful sailing school. Before this practical sailing course, I did the Navathome online sailing theory training, and that was a perfect preparation for this practical RYA approved sailing course. Thankyou Debbie, Shane and Navathome!

We have just had a fantastic 5 days with Go n Sail with our 3 teenagers aged 16, 15 and 13. Shane was brilliant in all aspects of tuition, very patient, relaxed but very safe and extremely professional. El Rubicon is spacious and comfortable, a lovely yacht to learn on with ample, fresh, delicious food replenished daily by Debbie. The area has loads to offer for families with teenagers, the towns for overnight stops have great restaurants/bars/local Spanish/Portuguese vibe and the public transport from Faro works very well. One of the best trips that we have ever had thanks to Shane and Debbie and El Rubicon who have all well and truly inspired us to continue sailing. Thank you so much!
