We'll start releasing these online micro-courses this Summer and Autumn. Yes, I know, it's taking forever. Sorry - work gets in the way!
The good news is, they are going to be pretty thorough micro-courses! Each guide will be comprehensive but focused on specific, important topics.
The Rookie Skipper Guides will be living things, added to and improved over time and as such, I have decided to offer them both to purchase & through a subscription format.
This way, I can make temporary access to them at a lower cost for the subscriber who possibly only needs access to them for say 6 - 12 months anyway. Also, retaining access & ownership to the guides enables me to keep adding to them and improving the content.
In summary, customers will have the choice to purchase the course outright, or take a shorter, cheaper subscription access.

Mark's a very kind and hugely competent instructor who was able to speak to the different skills and experiences of everyone on the course.
As well as being an excellent teacher, Mark has a wealth of knowledge about the sailing community and industry for those interested in getting to know more about it. Plus, he’s got enough good stories to make days with light winds or nights in the pub much more fun!
Mark had a way of teaching that was natural and topical, by use of the amazing stories he has from his sailing career. He was always happy to answer questions even for the 2nd or 3rd time.
- Great sailing knowledge both local and pretty much worldwide
- Natural teacher
- Easy to get along with
- Lets you make mistakes without endangering the boat or yourself, seeing if you notice and then correcting you if you don’t.
- Willing to make a cup of tea or 5
- Great stories
- Somehow has the best tan on a man from the midlands, during lockdown.
I would sail with Mark again at the drop of a hat, in fact I would count myself lucky to.
Mark's an excellent instructor. And easy to get along with.
I was constantly impressed with how someone of his depth of knowledge and experience was so patient when teaching a complete novice!
