This is a unique opportunity in the North West to go yacht sailing on the sea. Some people are lucky enough to own their own yacht or have friends who do. But for the majority who learn to sail through the RYA sailing schemes there is often a gap between what they learn on a course and having enough confidence to skipper a yacht themselves on a flotilla holiday or bareboat charter.
These Yacht Sailing Milebuilder days are intended for existing sailors who've already learnt the basics of how to sail. There will be an instructor aboard should you need any guidance but the idea is to just practise sailing and gain valuable tidal sailing experience on Morecambe Bay.
Yacht Sailing Milebuilders meet the instructor at garage No. 11 on Back Calton St. Full joining instructions will be emailed to you after booking. Allow about 5 hours from start to finish. Contact us to arrange alternative dates for a Yacht Sailing Milebuilder.
What you'll need:
- 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
We provide all the safety equipment. There's no loo on the small yacht so if you're driving a distance, call in at a pub on the way!
These milebuilder days are limited in number. But there's another way to develop your sailing skills. A sideways step to the 2-day RYA keelboat courses could be just what you're looking for. Read more
