This school offers tidal practise as well as mile-building trips to the West Country, the Channel Islands, and France. Seafarer’s tailored weekend courses are great for brushing off the cobwebs and getting back into the swing of things for individuals who are worried or seeking for a refresher before their next getaway.

The Solent is one of the best starting points since it is easily accessible from various parts of the country. Its sheltered seas allow sailing in most conditions, and it has a wide selection of places to sail to, from the Isle of Wight to picturesque harbours like Poole and Weymouth to the west, and Chichester and Portsmouth to the east. Many of Seafarer’s training trips take you to France and the Channel Islands.

Seafarer are now providing courses from Plymouth starting in the autumn of 2021, giving you additional sailing ground to explore. Enjoy visits to Fowey and Falmouth to the west of Plymouth, and Salcombe and Dartmouth to the east, depending on the length of the course.

On arriving at our base, you will be greeted by your instructor and shown to your yacht. There you will be given an essential safety brief and then free to relax for the night or mix with other guests. Our courses start on the following morning and run for 2, 5 or 7 days until mid-afternoon on the final day.

Breakfast and lunches are included giving you the time to focus on learning and having fun. Sailing is a social sport, and an RYA sailing course can be a perfect way to make new friends. Our RYA instructors have been chosen for their friendly approach as well as their expertise. The time you spend with us is as much about fun as it is a learning experience.

Weekend Trips

Embarking Friday evening from 6pm or by 8:30Am Saturday morning our weekend tuition includes refresher courses, taster cruises and the RYA Start Yachting. We will tend to sail locally, visiting the Isle of Wight, and the pretty harbours and towns within the Solent. Disembarkation is typically by around 4pm on Sunday afternoon.

Week Day Tuition

Our 5-day sailing courses venture further afield with cross-channel or coastal voyages to locations such as Weymouth and Poole. These include refresher courses, mile builder voyages as well as ICC courses and the standard RYA courses.

Private Tuition

Ideal for groups or for those who wish to ensure a bespoke program fully tailored to your needs. Depending on your previous experience, you can undertake any RYA courses or concentrate on any area identified as your training needs.

Price will depend on the time of year and the numbers in your group – please give us a call and we will be happy to put the right package together for you and your party.
