Private or group training

Private tuition is all about tailoring the training around your previous experience and working on the individual strengths and weaknesses of you and/or your crew. It’s a really efficient way to train, with the added bonus that you pick the dates and can bring family and friends to crew at no extra cost.

Group training benefits from experienced instructors and low student ratios. It’s a cost effective way to upskill and build experience, or simply enjoy getting afloat in a sociable learning environment.

RYA training courses

We deliver high quality RYA training courses on our immaculate fleet of club boats – with a focus on bespoke support and development.

Low instructor to student ratios ensure a high quality learning experience focused on your specific strengths and weaknesses. Make every hour spent onboard productive and enjoyable and if you choose private training, feel free to bring family and friends at no extra cost.

RYA day skipper courses completed in the Solent are held in high regard worldwide – it’s often said if you can sail in the Solent you can sail anywhere.

Key skill development

The RYA syllabus ensures you have the range of knowledge needed at each level, but it’s having a way to practice, test and develop your skills that makes you a better skipper and turns your knowledge into expertise.

We provide the environment for members to focus on developing the skills that matter to them, be that on a private basis with an instructor or in a small group setting joining one of our training events. Popular skill development includes:

⊚ Marina boat handling
⊚ Navigation & safety
⊚ Sail trim & spinnaker
⊚ Crew & teamwork

Events to keep learning

Learning about boating never ends. The same could be said for any discipline, but when it comes to boating, experience is everything.

That’s why we’ve crafted a calendar of events that makes it easy for you to get afloat and try new things in a fun, sociable environment. Options include:

⊚ Adventure cruises
⊚ Yacht racing
⊚ Social sails
⊚ Training days
