Over the years, First Class Sailing has built up good working relationships with many sailing organisations and businesses across the South Coast and beyond, and we’re happy to recommend groups which can help you get the most out of your sailing adventures.
All of the sites listed on this page are personally recommended by the First Class Sailing team based on the benefit they can offer to our customers. This means you won’t find paid-for links or links to companies we’re unfamiliar with on this page; nor will you find websites which aren’t relevant to your hobby of sailing.
