Excellent

Strengths

The willingness to let us learn from our mistakes and explain why we made them and how to improve. It felt like a great weekend on a boat less like a class. Great Learning experience.

Advice for improvement

Have instructor demonstrate the full ability of the vessel and shake the nerves of the class.

More time making knots during lunch or even in the morning with small sample ropes to play with. Then test those knots on the actual boat later in the day.

Then test those knots on the actual boat later in the day. To break the ice with any future drivers, maybe do a familiarity test with the boat so no one feels intimidated.

The instructor has been incredibly patient, pedagogical and responsive. They even adjusted my dates last minute at no additional charge!

Informed pre-reading and steps needed prior to training. Katinka, provided a safe place for learning and was able to see when participants were needing more attention or a kind words of encouragement. Practical theory and hands on application support learning. Small cohorts meant more time for application.

None at this time

From the first day we made contact with the rib school (katinka) to the last day of the course the experience has been professional and enjoyable. The content of the course was well balanced between theory and practical. Katinka teaches and leads you to what needs to be done, when, how and why. katinka has a great ability to share her wealth of knowledge and apply it to your learning. For myself and my wife who did the course together sharing our feedback with all is the least we could do as these two days on the RYA motor boat 2 course will set us up for years of pleasure on our own boat
