August 2015 News from ROCK Sailing

The temperatures continue to sizzle but out on the water there is a cool breeze and some great sailing to be had across the Straits to mystic North Africa. We are almost fully booked for the month of August but have two places available for a Competent Crew or Day Skipper course from 10th – 15th August and a Coastal Skipper place from 24th – 29th August.

Ocean Village will be running their annual Charity Cardboard Boat Race on 22nd August for those who have managed to stagger home from the Gibraltar Beer Festival on the 21st August.

Now is the time to book a family charter for the school holiday weeks in September. Whether you want to complete an RYA course or just enjoy some sunshine sailing, we can arrange it for you.

If you have just received your A Level results or want to take a break from your career, the final Fast Track course of the year will begin on 7th September. This will get you qualified in time for the hiring season for Flotilla Skippers. The first interviews for flotilla jobs with our partner companies in Croatia, Greece and Turkey are in December and January so perfect timing. A new qualification and a guaranteed job!
