About The Event

A 5 day trip during which allows the gianing of extra miles and open ocean experience.

If you are looking to complete your Coastal Skipper or Yachtmaster and need to gain some extra miles then this would be the perfect trip for you! Your skipper will decide on what stop offs can be made along the way depending on time and weather restrictions and it'll be lots of miles to add to your log book and a lovely holiday while you're at it!

Your skipper is RYA qualified and you can take advantage of her knowledge, either learning the basics of sailing, wind awareness, parts of the boat and of course how to sail it or concentrating on particular areas you wish to practice! You can be as involved as you wish, whether taking the helm, changing a sail, pulling on a few sheets or simply sitting back and enjoying the atmosphere! Whatever we do we ensure you'll be safe and have fun.


Pre-Course Requirements

As these trips take us out into the Caribbean sea and may involve some night sailing it is recommended that you have some previous sailing experience preferably to RYA Competent Crew or equivalent. Do talk to us about options and itinerary for each mile-building event.

The boat

We mostly coach on yachts of between 37 and 41ft. Our yachts have been specifically chosen as they are easy to handle, great for learning! There is no denying us girls sometimes don't have the physical strength of the boys but with our technical ability and a well-chosen yacht we can do just as well. You will usually find yourself aboard an Élan 37, Jeanneau 37 or a Beneteau 40.7. All of your time will be spent living as crew-mates on your yacht.  Most of the yachts have 9/10 berths with 3 cabins and a saloon so the boats will normally have 2 persons in each cabin i.e. 6 - this is always the case for an RYA course, MAX 6 persons on-board. On some events e.g. races we use the saloon which can sleep an additional 2-4 person.
