Roger has a tremendous wealth of experience and knowledge, about both sailing and teaching, which he brings to running his courses. I thoroughly enjoyed our Yachtmaster course, which was both challenging and rewarding in equal measure. Roger makes the courses fun at the same time as being able to meet the needs of each individual on the course. I feel confident about, and look forward to putting into practise, the things we have learned. I highly recommend the courses that Jolly Roger offers. Thank you, Roger!
