Absolutely recommend Happy out adventures. 5* Couldn’t get a better teacher than Moire. Such a lovely knowledgeable person who took loads of time and effort to make sure we got the most out of our navigational training both before the day and on the day itself. No question was too stupid. Thanks for a really enjoyable day where we learned loads and had lovely tea and brownies waiting after 👌🏻
