Our yachts, including Beaufort Venture, and 1720s will be in action next week.

The February Mid-Term Sailing Course is taking place from Monday 20th to Friday the 24th of February and running from 9am-5pm each day. As a number of schools don't have the whole week off we have generous discount and pro-rata pricing options for those who can only do a day or two! There's full details on this here.

Yachts and Keelboat Sailing

We've spent a number of years building up both our yacht and keelboat fleet as well as the advanced qualifications among of team of staff that are required to bring sailors afloat on these exciting machines safely. Our 1720 fleet stands at 7 high performance, yet very manageable keelboats while recent expansion in the yacht fleet sees Lynx, a Reflex 38, joined by Beaufort Venture and Jedi.

We're keen to get the junior course attendees sailing these boats and learning a whole new set of skills - skills that extend far from the practical ones needed to make the boat move, but team work and communication skills that a crew require to all work together to make one of these larger boats move. 

As part of the February Mid-Term sailing course we'll spend a bit of time on these boats in addition to dinghy sailing, kayaking and much more. Our experience is that children not only enjoy the challenges of sailing one of these larger boats but become great friends from striving to achieve a common endeavor. I'll be personally overseeing this component of the programme which I'm really excited to have the oppertunity to offer to our junior sailors.
