I am not connected to Matthews company in any way, but can I just add that I was impressed by the contact that I received from them - so would encourage anyone thinking about this to get in touch.
I'm not going to tar all Sailing Schools with the same brush - but its true to say that all too many simply send an email saying "Thanks for the CV" - and a sad few never even acknowledge the CVs at all!

actually wanted to know the sort of things I enjoyed doing, how much time I would happily commit - and where I was prepared to work. What a pleasant change!
So - if you think it might be for you - dont hang back.
