“Couldn’t have asked for a better sail instructor. Dave was extremely knowledgeable, but was patient in passing on that knowledge to others. Our time on Dave’s boat was an balance of intense learning experience, as well as great fun….. As an instructor, he helped us focus on the feel of a sail boat while learning to Skipper, rather than just the theory of it, a refreshing change to other courses I had previously been on. His love of the water and sailing inspired you to really want to qualify at the end of the course!”

“The breadth of Dave’s knowledge is both broad and detailed and he has such a calm and involved method of teaching that it is a real pleasure to be on a boat with him. I completed the dayskipper course with Dave on Dublin bay and finished the course with such an intense passion for sailing I immediately booked the Round Ireland mile builder with him. It’s rare that you meet someone that has such an obvious desire to share understanding and is also a bit of craic, Dave O’Connor has both in spades!”
