You will meet your crew and instructor for the 5-day practical course at 7pm on the Sunday evening before the course starts on Monday morning. The first evening is relaxed, and a chance to get to know each other over a crew meal ashore. The next morning you will prepare to set sail and you will spend the next 5 days exploring the Solent and South Coast. The route you take and the ports you visit will be weather dependent - and part of the course will cover appropriate route planning.
You will return about 3.30pm on the final Friday.
If these dates aren't suitable, please let us know as we are always adding new courses

All day time food and 3 evening meals are included on board, allowing you two evenings to enjoy a meal ashore (the first evening, plus one another). You will also receive an RYA Day Skipper Practical Certificate (Tidal). Please bring a passport photo for your certificate.
100nM, 5 days and 4 night hours on a sailing yacht. Minimum age 16.
