Whether you are a complete beginner, having never set foot on a sailing boat before, or a more experienced sailor, wishing to hone your skills, we have the perfect course for you.

You've never set foot on a sailing boat before and would like to learn the basics.

These courses are for beginners and those who would like to become active crew members rather than just passengers.

Learn to steer, handle sails, keep a lookout, row a dinghy and assist in all the day to day duties on board.

Courses for beginners

Courses for intermediate sailors

If you already have basic knowledge of sailing and wish to move up to the next level, these courses will provide you with the experience required to skipper a yacht.

Take one of the combined courses and you will learn the theory side as well as the practical, providing you with sufficient knowledge to safely skipper a yacht in familiar waters.

Advanced courses

Advanced skippering techniques for yachtsmen and women with considerable knowledge of sailing and navigation, wanting to undertake coastal passages by day and night.

Like the Day Skipper course, this course consists of skippered passages in a variety of situations. Each trainee will skipper more challenging passages and learn more about passage planning, pilotage by day and night, boat handling, safety and emergency situations.

It is a satisfying but intensive week, with candidates often working towards a Certificate of Competence.
