Where does the course start?
We run this highly popular RYA Sailing Course throughout the year from our base at Royal Clarence Marina in Gosport which is easily accessible by direct train from London Waterloo into Portsmouth Harbour, or by road. We are 15 minutes from the M27 motorway (junction 9).


Where will you sail?
You will sail throughout the Solent- regarded as the BEST sail training area in the world! During your course you will visit numerous rivers, inlets, picturesque anchorages and harbours on the Isle of Wight and along the New Forest coastline.

 

The cost of your RYA Competent Crew course includes:

Your accommodation on board your yacht throughout
Your breakfasts, homemade cooked food including our AMAZING cake!
All diets catered for!
Free use of sailing waterproofs (if needed)
Use of safety gear (life jacket and safety harness)
Free parking at our marina

 

During our weekend courses (2 or 3 day) we eat ashore in the evenings. During our five day courses we eat ashore one or two evenings. (This cost is not included)

 

A proportion of mooring fees (split between those aboard) are your only other additional expense. These can be between nil to £6.00 per night.
