RYA Courses and Yacht Charter in the Solent



We are back!

It has been a tough few months but we are almost back to normal operations, albeit subject to current Government restrictions, which means we’ve had to adapt how courses and charters are run.

We are running practical sailing courses subject to social distancing, with reduced group numbers and overnight stays requirements being altered a little to suit current guidance. This does not affecting the overall sailing/learning experience but does mean a bit more consideration is required with regards to how and where courses berth each evening.

In-line with current legislation there will be no more than five people on a practical sailing course at any one time plus an instructor.

Theory courses are also being run on a maximum of five students and one instructor per course, with a minimum of 1.5metres distance between all students being maintained. We recommend students bring their own face masks when attending theory courses. We provide alcohol gel for sanitising hands, and anti-bacterial/anti-viral hand wash.

Charters are running as normal and we ask that all our charter customers comply with current government restrictions when chartering yachts from us. We comprehensively cleanse and sanitise our yachts prior to customers arrival. We provide alcohol gel for sanitising hands, and anti-bacterial/anti-viral hand wash, along with Bleach and Milton Fluid solutions on the yachts for cleaning purposes during charters.

For the latest course dates or charter availability please contact us via email at or on the phone 023 9250 4443. We have a new website going live shortly, which will have a live course-calendar and online booking so you can book courses quickly and easily.

In the meantime, if there is a course you particularly want to attend, please give us a call or send us an email and we’ll see if we can schedule something for you.

Stay safe, keep on sailing!

I've been on lots of "school" boats in the Solent. These Bavarias are the most comfortable that I've been a huge margin. It's nice to see boats that are looked after. I was along for the ride as my 14 year old son was doing a Start Yachting course. I shall bring him back with his brothers to complete a Competent Crew course. For myself (Coastal Skipper already achieved) I'd like to do several mile builder courses. Barry, April 2018

I loved the whole experience start to finish, I found the team, the boats and the business excellent. Vicky, March 2018

As a complete and utter novice, I was anxious that the course wouldn't be for me. Not the case! All the instructors were patient and helped me to learn at a perfect pace. I feel very confident as a result of my five days. I was also not expecting the course to be so much fun! Thanks to all - including Brian. Becky, March 2018
