Some people are lucky enough to own their own yacht or have friends who do. But for the majority of beginners there's a skills gap between their RYA course and gaining enough sailing experience to confidently skipper a yacht themselves on a flotilla holiday or bareboat charter.
The Yacht Sailing Milebuilder days are intended for existing sailors who've already learnt the basics but need more time on the water practising their skills. There will be an instructor aboard should you need any guidance but the idea is to just practise whatever you want to get better at. You'll get some really valuable tidal sailing experience on Morecambe Bay too!
Yacht Sailing Milebuilders meet the instructor at garage No. 11 on Back Calton St. Allow about 5 hours from start to finish. The milebuilder days are limited in number & subject to demand. Please contact us for a Yacht Sailing Milebuilder.
There's another great way to develop your sailing skills though. A sideways step to the 2-day RYA keelboat courses could be just what you're looking for. Read more
Take a look at the 2-day RYA Level 3 Keelboat course too. It's a great way to develop your sailing skills.
What you'll need for keelboat sailing:
- Suitable footwear for the yacht with a change for later in case your feet get wet
- Waterproof trousers & jacket for splashes while transferring out to the yacht. We can provide them if you don't have your own
- Gloves for handling ropes, particularly when gybing
- Warm layers
- Tie for glasses
We provide all the safety equipment. There's a bucket but no loo aboard the small yacht so if you're driving a distance for your milebuilder, call in at a pub on the way! Facilities are available ashore during the 2-day keelboat courses.
