Hello BOSS team,
thanks a lot for the very nice time in Hamble.
Your are an excellent sailing school, I learnt so much during the Shorebased Course Yachtmaster Offshore and the Offshore Exam Preparation Course
I will recommend you to my sailing students in Germany.
In particular the contact with foreign students in both courses was excellent.
In the preparation course we were students of four different nations: USA, France, Slowakia and Germany. Dave, our cool skipper, was a local.
He formed a crew that was able to pass the exam.
Good job!
Also the service from Nikki was excellent. The sandwiches every lunchtime were a daily highlight, one of many highlights every day.
I hope I will come back one day. Otherwise we see us on sea.

Sincerely
Stephan Probandt from Dortmund
I think a few of us had a decent blast going East with the tide today. :) (I'm no photographer, but if you want full res versions of these for any reason I'm happy to send them.)

Have you heard the rumour?

..... well it’s true! Courses will resume from the 12th April 👍🏼

24/02/2021

On the 22nd February 2021, the government announced their 4 step plan to bring the country out of lockdown at a safe and steady pace. This is welcome news, and we look forward to courses resuming in some form from April. For some sectors of industry, the road map clearly outlines proposed dates for restarting. However, it is currently unclear how these plans will affect sail training. British Marine and our governing body the RYA are currently reviewing the detailed regulations and will update training centres in due course. With a diligent approach, we are looking forward to a more normal summer of sailing and to welcoming you back to BOSS!

Some online, distance learning and occupational courses remain available. For more details please call our bookings office on 02380 457733. We are always happy to discuss your sailing plans.

In Waters Deep

In ocean wastes no poppies blow,
No crosses stand in ordered row,
Their young hearts sleep... beneath the wave...
The spirited, the good, the brave,
But stars a constant vigil keep,
For them who lie beneath the deep.

'Tis true you cannot kneel in prayer
On certain spot and think. "He's there."
But you can to the ocean go...
See whitecaps marching row on row;
Know one for him will always ride...
In and out... with every tide.

And when your span of life is passed,
He'll meet you at the "Captain's Mast."
And they who mourn on distant shore
For sailors who'll come home no more,
Can dry their tears and pray for these
Who rest beneath the heaving seas...

For stars that shine and winds that blow
And whitecaps marching row on row.
And they can never lonely be
For when they lived... they chose the sea...
