Hi Susie Just to feedback on my experience, I think Oliver is a top class instructor. Hard working, very clear in his advice, instructions and explanations, managing a frustrating situation of excessive breeze very well; and also managing the social, welcome and customer service side of his role very well too. As a student I felt fully confident I was in confident, competent and experienced hands who made learning informative and fun. He gets my vote. Very many thanks to him and please do pass this on.
