Peter Shaw - Yachtmaster Offshore ü
If you want to get some excellent training for yachtmaster I cannot recommend a better place and establishment than Reach 4 the Wind. The training we experienced was without doubt the most worthwhile and informative I have ever had. Keith clearly has the where for all to establish the needs of the candidates and puts across the training in an easy to understand manner. His approachable manner and sociable attitude made the time on the boat, both days and evenings, very memotable.
Mary Nettleship – Coastal Skipper ü
Keith Harding is an excellent skipper and instructor, the yacht was well set up and very comfortable – a class above other teaching yachts in the Solent. I would definitely recommend “Reach 4 the Wind” to anyone interested in sailing, from beginners to those looking for a fun weekend on the water to serious sailors seeking to improve their racing techniques.
The Le Cornu Family – ICC ü
Great training, enjoyable and we learnt a tremendous amount in a very informal yet professional manner
Jackie Lawton – Day Skipper ü
Very impressed with the training, certainly exceeded my expectations and will be coming back for more. Would highly recommend to others, food was in a class of its own – “First Class” – was overall great experience and most importantly enjoyable.
Bruce Ingram – Day Skipper ü
Keith was an excellent instructor – he is like the school teacher that before the term starts you are disappointed to have been allocated, because he is tough, strict and does not allow the pupil to “blag it”; he is the same teacher that you are pleased you were instructed by at the end of term. I learned a great deal on the course, and now understand there is still some work to be done. Keith was out of the top drawer, professional and safe; I hope that I will return for more.
Paula Lightfoot – Competent Crew ü
This was my first time on a yacht and was not sure what to expect from the course. As a newcomer, I could not recommend the instructor enough. He was excellent and I had total confidence in him at all times. He also made the whole experience entertaining with his unique style of teaching and great sense of humour. It is a week I will never forget.
Cathy Ruston – Competent Crew ü
