Sailing instructor - Temporary / Seasonal - General (Europe)

Last summer I bought a boat and sailed it with friends from South-Brittany to North Holland.
I then spent some time on the water and sailed either alone or with a friend around the dutch north sea islands and crossed the channel tp england twice.

Now I feel the next step for me is working towards the yachtmaster offshore exam.
I am looking for a (certified !!) yachtmaster instructor who can teach me on my boat.
I would be happy to combine this with sailing to some places I haven't been yet. This could be for example the UK south or east coast or Norway or again France.
I am very flexible about starting dates and length of this journey (maybe something from 1-3 weeks). The boat should have all necessary equipment. (Autopilot, AIS, Liferaft, EPIRB, VHF).
I am looking forward to hear from you.

Sailing @ Medemblik

I had a very enjoyable 4 days with Chris on ‘Coriandre’ at the end of November assisting with his preparations for an RYA Yachtmaster exam. Chris is a capable, knowledgable and safe sailor who enjoys getting the optimum performance out of his boat. ‘Coriandre’ is beautifully presented and maintained. Add to that great company and cooking ( Chris’s) and what’s not to like?

Sail trip IJsselmeer, Texel and Vlieland

I sailed with Chris for a week in June and it was a great experience. Chris is really aware about safety, loves to share his knowledge and is really motivated to sail. The boat is beautiful and we had some great speeds, tasty meals and relaxing evenings. I would sail with chris any day.

Great weekend on IJselmeer

I had a Great time with Chris sailing on the IJselmeer. Chris is a sportive sailor, and I learned a lot on our trip. Chris is a good instructor, and stays calm when things don't directly go according to plan. On the ship a lot of gear was present to optimize the sailing performance. One evening we had a little jam session with guitars and Chris sung some nice songs. I would certainly sail with Chris again, and recommend him to anyone.

Great shipmate

I had an opportunity to sail with Chris on the English Channel for 9 days. He is a diligent and safe sailor, well acquainted with his boat. He is also very easy to get along with, eager to teach what he knows and learn new things. I recommend him without any reservation.

Easter weekend was a pleasure, since I got to spend it -with gorgeous weather!- on the IJsselmeer and Wadden Sea with Chris. Chris is a passionate sailor, and due to his analytic and studious nature, acquired a good amount of knowledge in a short time that he is gladly willing to share with anyone. If you are there to learn or exchange insights in sailing, build miles, have an active and sporty view on sailing, are openminded and like to talk, you will thoroughly enjoy your time with Chris. If you are as lucky as I was, he will even share and serve you his homemade wheat-free bread and play the guitar. Thanks again, Chris.

Competent captain

I have had the opportunity to sail in IJsselmeer with Chris for a whole weekend and during these two days he has proved to be a very competent sailor - with extensive knowledge - and a very nice person. He is the owner of an amazing, well maintained and fast boat. I am looking forward to sailing with him again.

Excellent Sailor and Easy going person

Chris was very kind to invite me for a sailing weekend in his boat. Sailing with Chris you will feel very safe since he is always in control of the boat. He was very polite and always willing to share all his knowledge about sailing with me. Definitely recommend Chris to sail with and looking forward to be able to sail with him in a near future.
