Learning the Ropes - Solent
The Solent provides the perfect location to conduct our training. This gives us time to ensure that everyone has the core skills and is confidently tacking and gybing, reefing and helming before we set off down the channel.
Famed for its professional sailing, stunning Victorian architecture and vibrant festival atmosphere, Cowes is one of the most popular towns on the Isle of Wight, with plenty of restaurants and bars.
