Luc and I had a truly fantastic experience - thank you Simon and our fellow crew mates Brian and Roley - can't recommend Equinox Sailing enough!


Just completed the Day Skipper qualification with Equinox London School of Sailing. Fantastic instructor, great boat, great week of sailing in the Solent. Can’t wait to hire that yacht out in the Med.


There were only three of us in the group which made it easier to absorb the large amount of material in the short time available. We would thoroughly recommend this course and Equinox Sailing to people looking to expand their sailing skills and expertise.


John was a great instructor communicating in a great way the content of the course. He has a very nice perspective of seamanship and brought aspects of it in the theory course.


I was really happy with Ben as a teacher. He explained the syllabus in a very understandable way by using lots of graphics.
