South African waters are renown to be tough waters.

This has been one of the main reason for choosing South Africa as my go to place to learn how to sail, when I was starting from zero.

Years later I’m still thankful for that choice and to the whole team at 2 Ocean Maritime Academy for what they have taught me during my Yachtmaster course.

Great instructors, good companions, honest people with one goal in mind: prepare new generations of sailors to take up the boating industry.

But this is not only what they do, they have showed me what a boat can take and how to handle it in tough situation and rough seas, the love and respect for the sea and the rules that governs it, how to be safe and how to have fun sailing.

Lessons that will stay with me for the rest of my life and that still echo in my mind each time I put foot on a boat, no matter how small or big no matter what its mean of propulsion is.

In time I’ve met other Yachtmasters who had earn their certificates in the Mediterranean, but I can honestly say their preparation was not even close to what a course with 2OMA will give you.

Is not just a certificate, is the deep knowledge of how to do things right for the fun and safety of the boat and the people onboard, even if is only one: YOU!

“I spent a lot of time with 2 Oceans Maritime Academy doing my skippers tickets and completing an Odyssey trip to Rio De Janeiro and back, every moment with them was one huge explosion of excitement and adventure. I learnt so much which has helped me get to where I am today.”

“Having lived nowhere near the ocean I arrived at 2 Ocean Maritime Academy with absolutely zero sailing experience.

The 2 OMA team made me feel so welcome and in the months to come gave me all the tools I needed to successfully complete my Yacht Master Ocean.

The time spent with 2OMA was one of the best experiences of my life! The friendships made are very dear to me. Sailing from Cape Town to Madagascar and back on the Howard Davis was for sure the highlight for me. The whole experience with 2OMA helped me on my way and now I am a Base Manager in the Seychelles!!

Thank you 2 OMA !!!”
