28 April 2017 Competent crew course
Ive just completed my competent crew course with Richard. He's extremely experienced and ensured everyone on the course learned both the practical and theoretical aspects of sailing. He's also a great cook and host

27 April 2017 Competent Crew
I have just completed my competent crew onboard Celtic Star and anybody who is thinking of taking up sailing then don't hesitate to contact Richard as his skippering skills and training course / holiday is second to none. The food onboard is exceptional and the yacht is fantastic. Had a great time and I cannot speak highly enough of the fulfilling experience it's a must do adventure for anyone interested in sailing. I am returning in June for my Day Skipper course. Bill

27 April 2017 Day Skipper
I have just completed my RYA Day Skipper with Richard having attended the RYA Competent Crew in October 2016. If you want to learn to sail this is the place to start. Richard will make your stay onboard an enjoyable learning experience. I will certainly be booking some mile builders for later in the year. Thanks for a great week. Edward

24 April 2017 Competent Crew
An excellent trip with Richard and Petra aboard Celtic Cruising around Anglesey. The teaching was thorough and very supportive giving everyone the opportunity to achieve their goals. Besides the sailing the food was amazing and I still can’t believed that it was prepared in the galley rather than an expensive restaurant, especially after a full day of sailing; not to mention the selections of wines to accompany the three course meals. The accommodation aboard was very comfortable and the trip was made all the more enjoyable with a good bunch of crew mates who I met on the trip. I would not hesitate to recommend Celtic Cruising. Thanks, Andy.

Richard and Petra are extremely knowledgeable about sailing (and wildlife) and Richard’s food is delicious but the other star is Celtic Star! The boat is comfortable, sails extremely well, is very well equipped and is superbly well maintained! It was a trip to savour and remember. Thanks to you and the rest of the crew for your support and help.
