Low instructor – student ratios ensure the highest quality learning experience focused on you and your crews specific strengths and weaknesses. Every hour spent onboard is more productive when learning in this way.

⊚ Private RYA training with family and friends

Book a private RYA course and bring family and friends at no extra cost. It’s a great way to combine accredited training with memorable family time.

Crew can either study for the same qualification as you, or for other qualifications (eg. competent crew or helmsman). They can also just come and have fun, and support you.

⊚ Group RYA training with one other student

Small group training is a cost effective way to gain RYA qualifications and enjoy getting afloat in a sociable learning environment.

We standardly run shared RYA training with a 2:1 student instructor ratio. This means our trainers can clearly focus on your strengths and weaknesses, making best use of your time.

Why train on the Solent?

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.

We’ve been based in Hamble, at the heart of the UK’s boating scene since 2007.

The Solent, with a wonderful selection of harbours and pretty bays, is beautiful and varied but also demanding, with challenging winds, complex tides and busy waterways.

How does RYA training work as a Pure Latitude member?

⊚ All training options are available with membership (or can be added on).

⊚ Arrange a private course or book your place on a scheduled RYA course. Private courses can be split into two blocks.

⊚ All our instructors are RYA trained, experienced and friendly.

The ability to book 1-1 training represents a much better quality training experience than the group programmes that are common at other training centers.

PL has given us the skills to confidently skipper yachts and has opened the world of sailing to us. Standards are high, both when it comes to the quality of the training and the maintenance of the fleet. Considering the wide choice of boats and the overall professionalism, the membership is very good value.

Above all, the PL team consists of incredible people who are a joy to spend time with. We’re sailors now!

What comes after RYA qualifications?

We believe that having a way to practice, test and develop your skills during a regular day on the water helps turn your RYA knowledge into expertise.

That’s why we promise that we’ll support you through every part of your skippering journey, not just the RYA parts, as a member of our boat club.

What are your sailing goals? Let’s make them happen.
