I would like to take this opportunity to thank and compliment the SYSA team – I have recently completed my courses in order to go over and start my career on the Super Yachts. Coming from the Transport & Logistics industry and having my career well on the go here in South Africa, this change in career paths was an exciting but also daunting one for me, but from the first email to Georgina and Lance I am happy to say that I was well-informed and my worries put to rest.

Lance, I would like to thank you for being willing to take the time before, I booked and paid for my courses, to meet with me and answer all the questions that I had and give me more information regarding the new venture I would find myself on in the future. This meant a great deal to me and also showed me that SYSA does not just put students through the courses but they also care.

To the rest of the SYSA team and instructors, thank you for your support and great teaching skills. Coming from a totally different industry, not once was I made to feel out of place. You guys really did make every one of us on the courses feel at ease and eager to learn. Your additional advice over and above the courses was highly appreciated.

SYSA, thank you again for an epic introduction into the industry! I will definitely be back to do my progression courses in the future, and of course I will be spreading the word of your great service, enthusiasm, and teaching to others!

I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to the amazing team at SYSA for all the help and guidance and for taking an interest and getting to know me as a person. I am super happy to mention that I have secured my first role onboard a yacht and my 17 year Naval Career comes to an end soon as I get ready to set sail on a new adventure in the Yachting Industry. I will definitely recommend SYSA to anyone interested in getting started in the Yachting Industry.

I completed Day Skippers Theory and a lot of other Powerboat courses with SYSA. Day Skipper Theory was by far the most challenging and fun for me because there’s so much to learn. It helps to have an inspiring teacher who can explain everything to you in-depth and who makes it interesting because they are so passionate about it themselves. I found all the instructors to be patient, insightful, and well rounded in knowledge about the sea and planning a passage.

Just finished my SYSA training courses and I’ve had so much fun and learned lots of new useful interesting things! All the instructors were really friendly and know exactly what they are doing. The team all come from professional yachting backgrounds so no need to tell you that all your questions will be answered.
You arrive as a newbie and leave as a friend 😉 !!
