We have two training yachts in the school to suit all types of sailing.
Our newer Beneteu 37 is ideal for training RYA Competent Crew and RYA Day Skipper as its a good comfortable size but small enough for a new skipper to be able to handle her with ease. She is well equipped and has excellent cover from the sun with a full bimini. The Beneteu can comfortably sleep 7 and with its large, wide cockpit it’s very comfortable upstairs.
Our larger Bavaria 47 is more suited towards the RYA Coastal Skipper and RYA Yachtmaster courses but as she has air conditioning we use her more frequently in the hotter months. Her features also including a 240V generator, electric primary winches, radar and HF radio. So she is also ideally setup for blue water cruising.
‘Own Boat’ Training
If you wish to have your own private course on your own yacht this can be arranged. The yacht used must meet certain standards we will be happy to advise you about the details on request.
