Sailing Courses
Sailing courses are undertaken on a variety of modern sailing yachts but our main yachts are a new Bruce Farr/BMW designed 2011 Bavaria 36 and a 2007 Bavaria 37 both fitted with a furling Genoa head-sail and single -line mainsail reefing to allow easy sailing.  
 
We operate around the sheltered South Devon coastline of the Torbay, Salcombe and Dartmouth areas. We don't marina hop, instead we like to sail to perfect tranquil areas and specialise in showing you Devon's most beautiful spots. Marinas do feature as a daily stop, but evenings are usually spent in quaint towns & villages tucked away in quiet estuaries. Riverside pubs provide a great opportunity to reflect on the great day's sailing. Check our Photo Album link for pictures of some of our post sailing haunts; or après sail as we call it! 
 
Sailing with us is very different from the large commercially driven schools you can find in other parts of the south coast. We care about YOU and what your requirements entail. In our sailing area, we don't have to race to our destination by 2 p.m. to guarantee a berth and the sailing instruction is given at a manageable, understandable pace. We tailor each course to the requirements of the candidates on board at the time and our student to instructor ratio is normally only 4:1.  
 
Navigation is taught using traditional charting techniques along with electronic methods using E-Series Raymarine chart plotters and Radar.  
 
Our RYA approved instructors are hand picked and very experienced with at least 15 years at sea, they offer sailing instruction following a tried and tested structure. We ensure that they are the best available with humanity and a sense of humour built in. We aim to give you an enjoyable holiday whilst gaining valuable knowledge on the way. Make sure you bring a camera, your sense of humour and prepare to have the best experience of scenery and hospitality. 
 
Courses are run on specific dates at set times but we can also organise courses around your specific dates if you wish to book an exclusive course - see our Charter page for more details
