Bespoke Tuition & Confidence Building

BESPOKE TUITION

Our bespoke courses are a great way to tailor your tuition to your exact needs.

You get the boat and an instructor, and we will teach whatever you want, either within the framework of the RYA with certification, or more of a coaching weekend/week for skills development.

The real advantage of this approach is that you’re able to have the boat to yourselves – you could use it as an opportunity for the whole family to learn more skills, share the time with friends, or take advantage of one-to-one tuition from your instructor.

SAILING SKILLS WEEKENDS

Perfect for anyone wishing to brush up skills and techniques, blow away the cobwebs before the sailing season starts again or just practise some skills with the comfort of an instructor on board. Newly qualified and existing skippers often tell us that there are things they never get to practise when they go out sailing with friends. These specially designed weekends will help you by offering a brush up and improve weekend.
 

Areas we could include are:

  • Close Quarters Boat Handling under Sail and power
  • Blind (Fog) Navigation
  • Advanced sail handling
  • Secondary port calculations
  • Intricate pilotage
  • Sailing onto moorings and pontoons
  • Man Overboard recovery
  • Tidal update / refresher
  • Anchoring
Of course if you have other areas you would like to look at we can try to help.
 
Each weekend will be different as the course will be designed around the individual needs of those onboard.

PRE-FLOTILLA TRAINING COURSE:

A refresher course for those who would be able to partake in a flotilla holiday with confidence. The course is usually run on board a yacht that would be similar to one you would be chartering on your flotilla holiday. You will spend your time on the water with an instructor covering the areas of skippering, boat handling and line of sight navigation. All of which would be required to ensure that you can complete your flotilla holiday in confidence. Why not then add on your ICC assessment to the course so you have all the necessary paperwork ready for your holiday?

MILE BUILDING:

Everybody needs to add miles and experience to their logbook and have a chance to practise skills in a controlled environment and under guidance. You will have a chance to Skipper and be totally involved in the running of the boat. You do not need to be a seasoned sailor to enjoy one of these holiday cruises. Let us know what your aims are and we will do our best to accommodate you
