"Loic and Kate are not only true professionals, they are welcoming, encouraging, patient & kind. Delivering a practical life saving course during social distancing was always going to be challenging, however without any fuss every effort was made to ensure the participating groups and comfort came first. The training was excellent, the online content & Zoom meetings brilliant and the kit and equipment provided was all 1st class.

I unhesitatingly recommend Coast to Coast Water Safety"
