I’m sometimes asked by sailing schools or clubs to go aboard their yachts for a day and give a Masterclass.  We go out for a jolly good sail and they can air any problems they are having. At present I’m to be found aboard the good ship Lady Emma a couple of times a year.  Contact Salli McLaughlin on


‘Many thanks to you, as well as a few hearty shipmates for a splendid day on the water last Thursday. Alas due to dodgy knees I fear my sailing days (apart from the levitra low price odd day) could well be over, but to listen to the yarns, the history of the Pilot Cutter and share laughs with a great crowd, as well as the feel of Morwenna moving nicely in a good breeze made it very special for me.’  Eddie W

‘Tom, thank you again for a great couple of days on Morwenna (second year running), a thoroughly entertaining and inspiring time.’  Tony B

‘We had a master class aboard Lady Emma with Tom Cunliffe last week in The Solent. Excellent.’  Richard R

‘I had a great day on Lady Emma yesterday with you and the Lados gang. Thanks for all the good advice you imparted to purchase levitra online us all.’ Alan D       

Electronics Seminar

I’ve also set up, introduced and been MC at Electronic Seminars for clubs. These usually last a day and I bring along a Radar specialist, a Plotter professional and one or two others to give talks about various aspects of electronic navigation. I’m able to provide practice equipment, courtesy of Raymarine for a hands-on session.


‘Wow, that was a most successful day. Your chairing very effectively kept control: the timings were spot on. We & many others were most pleased by your iconic, charismatic, informative talk. Many many thanks to you. What a memorable day’  Royal Harwich Yacht Club
