Southampton Advanced Weekends

To take part in our weekend Advanced Boat Handling/Sailing Courses, ideally you need to have reached at least Day Skipper Practical standard. The course is weather dependent but aims to cover:

  • Advanced boat handling and maneuvering, including mooring stern to quay with anchor or lazy lines
  • Heavy weather sailing or the finer detail of light airs sailing depending on conditions
  • Storm sails, storm tactics
  • Spinnaker handling

Crew wellbeing, food, rescue equipment, personal equipment, towing and crew motivation will also be discussed.

The Advanced Boat Handling weekends will improve your confidence no end and better prepare you for tricky situations you may well encounter when you are skipper.

You will be asked to arrive on Friday evening at 8pm. You will usually sail that night to somewhere local, to have supper ashore [not included] in order to get the weekend off to a good start
