Exclamation Blue Oyster Sailing School - Gibraltar

I had the misfortune of trying this lot. What an awful experience! The Owners were extremely rude, inconsiderate to my needs and as for the "food" they supplied....stodgy, cheap and inedible at the very best. I started to look into them, sadly after I had parted with my money. Apparently this Susie is not all she claims to be, her family do not live in Gibraltar and she has a somewhat shady past.

Re: Blue Oyster Sailing School - Gibraltar

Sorry to hear about your bad sailing school experiences... It is sometimes hard to sort out the good from the bad. One good place to check is Trip Advisor or some similar independent review site.

Your not the first disgruntled customers/students who've come on here about them..
Report them to the RYA.. get enough bad press and they may just get their right to approve RYA certificates removed.
The RYA's a great organisation for boaters and fight our corner.. pretty sure they don't want crap schools in their name..
