PRIVATE SAILING SCHOOL
Private instruction is a good way for couples,
families to learn sailing at there own speed.
Private instruction means you have your own teaching yacht and do
not have to share with strangers. It also means that you have your
own dedicated instructor. The instructor sleeps on board the yacht as
they are responsible for the safety of the yacht and your party. As
a rule instructors are also the best at discretion and keeping
We take children of any age on a private sailing course – and we
have had them as young as new born's to fully grown... Organizing
family cruises where the whole family takes a selection of
qualifications is a great example of using the private instruction
option to full fill that perfect family vacation. Those of 10 years
and over can take an ASA course.
We recommend taking your course over 10 days rather than seven, to
have a more relaxed pace which gives the children more time for
swimming and relaxing.
It is possible to have children on board when mum and/or dad take
their Bare Boat Skipper course, but this is a little more difficult
as the course is more intensive.
Normally two people is the minimum that we can take
on a private course but we can run a course for just one person if
you take one of our qualified staff on board to crew for you in
addition to your instructor.
