    Hi all at 2 Ocean’s Maritime Academy

    Just a thank you for everything you have taught me and done for me – I can honestly say that the couple of weeks spent with you guys doing my courses have been the best of my life!

    To Hilary Ackermann: If it hadn’t been for your welcoming personality and SUPERB administration skills, I would have been lost in the sea of information that hit me when I decided to venture into this industry. Your stewardess course presented together with Alison Rese was my first taste of what was to come and has absolutely prepared me to become a Superstew! The course was not only very educational with some first-hand experience by cleaning a yacht ourselves, but also a lot of fun.

    To Sean, Dave and Matt : Thank you for taking this nervous girl and turning her into a sailor-in-the-making! Your patience with me during my competent crew course and day skipper practical weeks has been amazing and you have all taken the time to focus on my strengths, build up my confidence and let me master my fear. All your insight and inspiring stories have left me craving more every step of the way!

    Efficient administration; top-notch equipment and boats; experienced instructors and an active and welcoming vibe has made your academy an excellent choice for anyone looking to enter the industry. I will always make sure to pop in and say hi to the 2OMA family when visiting South Africa!

    "WOW!" Two months ago I had no clue how a yacht even functions, but now, thanks to you guys at 2 Oceans Maritime Academy, I feel as though I have saltwater flowing through my veins. Thank you to all the instructors for their patience, professionalism and guidance. Not only am I confident enough to sail around the world, but to take it over too...Haha, just kidding...Or am I..?

    Oh what an experience!

    I have learned so much from day one straight through to Yachtmaster Oceans. With a lot of support and encouragement from Sean and Hilary and A LOT of patience from Dave and Dale they taught us, the January 2013 Yacht Master Oceans group, what sailing is all about! We had so many laughs, blond moments and stories to tell and it all made the three months go by so fast - which is a shame because I would've liked the fun to keep on going. They prepared us for the yachting world, taught us some valuable life lessons and we made some good friends along the way.

    Thank you very much to all at 2 Oceans Maritime Academy, it was a great experience!
