New Antiguan RYA Yachtmaster Offshore

Huge congratulations go to Kishawn Harrigan who has, this month, become only one of a handful of Antiguan sailors to ever achieve their RYA Yachtmaster Offshore qualifications. Kishawn has worked with Ondeck for many years and will be taking up the post of lead skipper. Not content with this accolade he will shortly be completing his RYA Cruising Instructor course enabling him to teach to Day Skipper and Competent Crew. He will then be just one of two instructors born and raised here qualified to teach to this level. Fortunately the other , Logan Knight, is also with Ondeck
