Walter prepared us really well for the Yachtmaster Exam. I learned a lot by getting hands on experience, especially on engine maintenance. The boat was in excellent condition. The Yachtmaster Exam itself was something like I never experienced before. I was examined in all aspects of theory, and sailing both in the marina and out at sea, day and night. The exam took 8 hours. It was quite a challenge. I recommend it! I like a challenge.
