Allabroad is a family business, this is me with my fiancée Clare Kuszyk.  I started sailing back in 1987, i've been instructing at  Allabroad, since 2002 and  held the position as Principal since 2007.  During that time Clare has been course advisor, kept control of the office side of the business, and me to a certain extent! When I’m not out on the water I deliver training to the local Gibraltar Police, Customs, Port Authority and Pilots. And when I'm not teaching im writing this website!

Course Advisors

If you're not sure about what course is right for you, give these guys a call they will be delighted to help.

Alex, Hannah, and Clare, pictured here during a small dockside celebration after a group of Allabroad Fast Track Yachtmasters had all just passed their final exams! They are usually working hard answering emails, but I do let them out once in a while!  When you contact us, these are the guys you're speaking to, they know the RYA Sailing and Motor Cruising Schemes inside out and can even offer careers advice for those who are training up to work in the yachting industry.



 Advice is available for complete beginners to experienced Yacht Captains, these guys are up to the minute with STCW training requirements and all amendments.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails.
