As an expedition leader for Arctic travel agencies, I followed the RYA course level 2 during two days at Ribschool.nl with Katinka and a collegue from Germany, Heiko. I had followed a level 1 course in 2014 ago, also with Ribschool.nl, with Michel. Both are great patient teachers, and know how to work on your needs. I was very happy to see that they had the kind of rubberboat (Zodiac) we are actually using in the Arctic, so training was 100% to the point. Katinka and Michel have built a fantastic company in my opinion, being able to prep you in a nice surrounding of the harbour of Scheveningen and the north sea. To be recommended to all my Arctic expedition collegues and everyone who wants to upgrade confidence and knowledge, steering motorboats.
-Katinka is a fantastic teacher, and she knew exactly what we needed
- Ribschool.nl arranged a course together with a collegue that works in the same environment, so we could keep it really practical for our field of work!
- to the point, finally a course about the essentials
- lot's of nice stories between the theory!
Advice for improvement
-We should have more Polar bears and ice in Scheveningen, to make it really real!
