Matt, 27, was a professional sailor with over nine years experience when he joined Flying Fish. He had amassed over 150,000 nautical miles and raced around the world.
When he was called on to act as delivery skipper taking a 100 ft Swan across the Atlantic Matt needed to get STCW Basic Safety certificates fast, so he came to Cowes to train with the experts.
In Matt's own words: I was extremely impressed with the guys who trained us. Rich Coomber was an absolutely fantastic instructor and I couldn't praise him enough.
The general mood of the other guys staying with you 'long term' is very good and they feel the same as me about this week.
I shall be definitely recommending you to other people for their courses in the future!
