I don't doubt that given Paul's pedigree anyone going there can expect a good experience. However I am always sceptical of claims someone is the best instructor (boat, first aid, car, climbing, windsurfing etc) afterall how many PB2 courses can you have been on? And even people who have been to loads of different courses from different suppliers, have not been as a total beginner (or in this case a 13yr old) to all of them. And then we all learn in different ways...
I have posted before about the different style of training you can expect from a specialist school, a big outdoor centre and a sailing club. I'd suggest that training for children is a special category in itself. I'm sure Paul will understand those special challenges.
