  • Where does it all lead to?

    We can provide the training and many excellent and fun ways to gain the experience. As you build your knowledge and skills new doors open.

    Generally, from beginner to bareboat charter we require at least 26hrs of instruction and a few social races under your belt before we will allow you to charter one of our smaller yachts with people of similar experience and favourable weather conditions.

    It depends on the course: In harbour training - up to 4 students
