Sailing to us is about adventure. The process of learning to sail is an adventure and this adventure doesn’t stop once you know how to sail.

In addition to RYA courses we offer a number of other sailing activities designed to complement the sailing courses we run. These range from weekend sailing trips across the Channel to France and back to sailing across the Atlantic in the annual ARC event in November and December.

There will always be an instructor on board so you can learn as much or as little as you like on these trips. If you would prefer to just kick back and watch the world go by then you can.

If there is a sailing adventure you would like to do that is not listed below then contact us and we will see if we can do it with you.
