The company I did my sailing course with last year, Hot Liquid, have had a series of serious incidents over the last year leading to their Southampton school being suspended by the RYA. More details can be found on this Yachting Monthly article.
From what I’ve heard the operation out of Gibraltar is now trading as On Deck, so the good instructors I trained with out there aren’t affected by these events, one I know worked with On Deck previously and the other left last year.
We went out for a day with Giles Windebank this week in the Solent, he operates Ocean Adventures Sailing on his Bravia 42 Quintessence. We definitely didn’t have a Force 10 to worry about, which gave us plenty of time to chat about his new AIS letting us now track his every move!
