Discounted RYA Training at Standby Prices!

We know everyone likes a bargain and search for discounted prices when booking anything from flights to theatre tickets. At Commodore Yachting we offer excellent value for money on all our RYA training courses, Milebuilding Trips and Solent Yacht Charter. It is hard to offer discounts without compromising quality and comfort which is why we have been trying to come up with an idea that will offer the best of both worlds. When we travel abroad we often fly ‘Standby’, it offers us flexibility at an very affordable price. Airlines benefit too as Standby passengers fill otherwise empty seats on aircraft, something that we can apply to RYA sailing courses as well. It is a win – win situation; we are able to fill spare capacity and you pay less for your RYA training!

This is how it works –

Questions about Standby places:

I am interested in a Day Skipper course coming up next week, can I book this as a Standby?

I am sorry but you cannot specify a date when booking a Standby place. Whilst this might so convenient for you, the ability for a customer to be flexible is what makes the Standby system such a fantastic way to save money. We can fill last minute places and anyone who has purchased a Standby place will have the opportunity of accepting a discounted place at short notice.

To book, select the Standby option on any course page.
