For those of you looking for a change of career in 2019, our first 14 week Fast Track Yachtmaster course will begin on 13th January . This will qualify you in time to start work with our colleagues at Neilson Sailing, Nautilus Yachting or Med Sailors as Flotilla Skippers for the summer season in the Med. The RYA Yachtmaster qualification can also benefit the experienced sailor who wants to feel competent to sail the oceans.

For those of you who prefer to learn the ropes while on holiday, you will gain a perfect introduction to sailing on an RYA Competent Crew course. If you are planning to charter in the summer, you will need an International Certificate of Competence which you will achieve on a Day Skipper course. We have 300 days of sunshine per year, even in winter, so take advantage of the great flight prices for February and March and be qualified for your summer charter.
