…Choose to take your own cabin if you prefer not to share…

Our Yachts…

We have a total of 5 yachts available for general charter but typically on our sailing courses we use either our Dufour 365 , our Beneteau Oceanis 37 or our Dufour 382.

  • Our yachts are all kept in superb condition in fact they are probably some of the best kept yachts you will find in use as training yachts.
  • They offer a similar accommodation layout and sleep 8 people in 3 double cabins and double berth conversion in the saloon.

Student : Instructor Ratio…

A lot of Sailing Schools run courses with 5 students plus the instructor which inevitably will result in students sharing a cabin with more confined living and less hands on time.
We run our courses with a maximum of 4 and more often with 3 students.

Own Cabin Options…

Whilst some people are very happy sharing a cabin for others it can really put them off from joining a sailing course. On all our sailing courses we price for students booking a place with their own cabin. If you are happy to share then we offer a discounted rate.

We find that most people are only too happy to pay a small premium for the extra comfort of having their own personal accommodation space and this option has proved very popular.

Benefits of a reduce Student : Instructor ratio…

In addition to the obvious benefits of not having to share a relatively confined accommodation space on board for 5 days our students benefit greatly from a reduced student instructor ratio. It is very common for our sailing courses to run with 3 people plus the instructor.

This offers each student much more hands on time and combined with the extra space onboard we find that by reducing the numbers it creates a better learning environment all round.
