About The Event
These events don't happen that often, so grab yourself a glass of bubbly and do it in style.
This will be a fantastic weekend where you can get to know like minded people and even meet a few new friends. If you're thinking of learning to sail, this is the perfect weekend to try!
Your Skipper is RYA qualified and you can take advantage of her knowledge, either learning the basics of sailing, wind awareness, parts of the boat and of course how to sail it or concentrating on particular areas you wish to practice.
You can be as involved as you wish, whether taking the helm, changing a sail, pulling on a few sheets or simply sitting back and enjoying the atmosphere.
This event is ideal for both absolute beginners and those who want to just get on the water with a fun crowd.
The weekend will depend on the weather, wind and tide and on where you would like to go. Whatever we do we ensure you’ll be safe and have fun.
Why not get a gang of friends together and have a fun-filled couple of days together?
We will celebrate the start of summer, including a lovely lunch which you can enjoy with a glass or two of bubbly while looking out over the beautiful Solent!
Why not visit a pub, or anchor in a beautiful bay and brave the English waters for a swim!!
Take a look around the beautiful town of Lymington, and see what it has to offer…
We mostly coach on yachts of between 37 and 41ft. Our yachts have been specifically chosen as they are easy to handle, great for learning! There is no denying us girls sometimes don't have the physical strength of the boys but with our technical ability and a well-chosen yacht we can do just as well. You will usually find yourself aboard an Élan 37, Jeanneau 37 or a Beneteau 40.7. All of your time will be spent living as crew-mates on your yacht. Most of the yachts have 9/10 berths with 3 cabins and a saloon so the boats will normally have 2 persons in each cabin i.e. 6 - this is always the case for an RYA course, MAX 6 persons on-board. On some events e.g. races we use the saloon which can sleep an additional 2-4 person.
