About the instructors

Paul McCabe

Principal and Director of Mendez Marine, Cruising and Powerboat Instructor

Paul first started playing with boats over 40 years ago and has maintained a keen interest to this day. Having given up dinghy sailing several years ago, Paul can quite often be found cruising the South Coast and beyond with a big smile on his face aboard a 40ft motor cruiser.

Paul is co-principle, Managing Director and instructor.

“I love being on the water or below, as a boat owner and diver I think I have now, at last, found the job of my dreams”.
