Bank Holiday Weekend Channel Hops

 
A short but action packed holiday, or spreading your RYA Competent Crew or Day Skipper course over two weekends, either way the bank holidays are perfect as you don’t need to use up any valuable days off work!

And with the Easter break having two bank holidays, you can do a whole course and only need to take one day off work.

Quick sailing breaks let you visit distant shores, perfect for some extended time on the water and putting those important nautical miles under your belt.

There is a wide variety on offer and our current offers are listed below. Call the office on 0203 006 3717 if you have any queries or want to make an immediate booking.

Bank Holiday RYA Competent Crew Practical Course

Once completed you will become a useful crew member and an asset to anyone you go sailing with. You’ll be sleeping and eating on board (apart from perhaps the odd evening meal out in a pub or restaurant if you choose!) you will learn lots about sailing, life on board and how fun it is.

Price £630.00

Five day course starts evening of 12 April (Easter 13 – 17 April)

Bank Holiday RYA Day Skipper Practical Course

Bank Holiday RYA Competent Crew Practical Course

If you’ve completed your Competent Crew course then you’ll know that this is the final step before you can charter your own yacht in the Mediterranean. This is a great course for rounding off your skills and gives you great confidence for skippering and taking the helm.

We strongly recommend taking this course over five days or two consecutive weekends. If one of those weekends has a bank holiday, or you take the five over Easter, you’ll be very economical when it comes to taking time off work.
