Your RYA practical course will take place whilst sailing in and around the sheltered waters of the Solent.
Each RYA practical course takes place on board one of our comfortable Bavaria sailing yachts. There will never be more than 5 students on board although our smallest yacht sleeps up to 8 people. Unlike some RYA sailing courses, our courses are FULLY INCLUSIVE of accommodation on board the yacht, free use of wet weather gear and berthing fees. Most meals (see details below) are included except on weekend courses when you will receive breakfast and lunch on board but we think you will enjoy sampling local cuisine at the wide variety of pubs and restaurants in the Solent harbours you will be visiting.
I really enjoyed the course, sailing to different locations each day, the night sailing and meeting and spending 9 days with a great group of people all wanting to learn more about sailing, I now feel very confident about chartering a yacht in the future. The biggest thanks go to our Instructor Simon who showed great skill and patience in the way that he taught and shared his many years experience and knowledge of all aspects of sailing, we also shared many hours in the evenings talking about our experiences and possible adventures in the future,a very enjoyable and memorable course. I’d use Commodore yachting again for any future training and would recommend them to others wanting to improve their sailing. Many thanks once again.

Instructor very very very good, well pitched, excellent explanations, relaxed but safe, informative, great weather conditions (sure that was not anything to do with instructor though) Brilliant course

Despite storm Katie causing disruption with the weather, Pete managed to work around that and achieve all the course requirements. It was a great 5 days and I really got a lot out of it. Pete is a bit of a character with some great stories and we had a fantastic time on and off the boat 😀

Had an amazing time with Pete and our fellow crew. Some challenges thrown at us by storm Katie but that only improved the sense of achievement. Can highly recommend the great personal service offered by Stuart, Karen and the team

Your own space on board
Yacht crews are renown for their friendliness which is convenient as they are subject to obvious space limitations on board. Even though our smallest yacht is a 3 cabin, 8 berth boat and our largest a 4 cabin 10 berth boat, it can sometimes be hard to juggle the accommodation without some sharing of cabins. If you would like your own cabin this is possible by paying for a Single Supplement. This is easy to do by following the link below.
