What we cover on the course:

You’ll get to visit marinas and ports a little further afield than the Solent, like Cherbourg, Portland or Weymouth. It’ll involve more intense and longer days sailing.

Along with some cracking sailing, you’ll get to visit places you didn’t visit on your RYA Competent Crew or Day Skipper course. The passages are longer and it’ll involve more quality sea-time, but it’s such a rewarding week/weekends sailing.

Our Principal says this about the Beyond The Solent Weekend:

What better a way to celebrate that new RYA Competent Crew or Day Skipper qualification than with a Beyond the Solent week/weekend aboard one of our fleet yachts!

A great way to build extra mileage and enjoy some longer passages to locations further afield than the Solent, guided by one of our experienced and professional RYA qualified instructors.

You’ll get to see first hand why the south coast is the perfect place to build some miles and gain more experience.

With so many locations to chose from (weather dependant of course) you might go and see Portland or Weymouth, or how about metropolitan Brighton Marina or even Cherbourg for a great night out when you arrive?
