Everyone has different training and development needs depending on their personal background and objectives for learning or improving their sailing skills.

Our aim is to ensure your specific needs and requirements are met.  We can assist you with many practical courses on your own boat or a charter boat of your choice.

  • All of our courses can be run in a number of ‘partner’ sailing schools in the UK and overseas

[all prices on application dependent on requirements and venue; for example a 5 day Day skipper practical course in the Solent is around £600 per person; a 6 day (7 nights onboard} is around Euros 800]
