This group exercise is an excellent way to perfect your strong wind techniques and knowledge. Ideal for sailors who are already skippering boats, you’ll be accompanied by a professional instructor who will help you develop your confidence and offer expert advice across our fully comprehensive syllabus:

·       Weather forecast and passage plan/decision making.
·       Boat and Crew preparation for heavy weather before you depart.
·       Heavy weather tips on all points of sail.
·       Sail Plans and Reefing (Upwind and downwind).
·       Understanding the sea state / choosing your tack.
·       Manoeuvring in heavy seas.
·       Longer distance boat husbandry and management.

The PL team has an impressive range of services to offer, but controlling the weather unfortunately isn’t one of them – Strong winds of course are not guaranteed! What we can promise is a robust, in-depth day of training that will equip you with the knowledge and skills you need to take your skippering to the next level, whatever the weather.
