Racing training weekends are a great opportunity for all levels to increase their racing skills. We start with a safety brief and try and get on the water as quickly as possible and get the boat tacking at speed with the team trimming and moving their weight effectively as soon as possible. You’ll move from position to position on the boat and also have a chance to take the helm.
Day 2 will start with Spinnaker land drills (wind dependent) and then we head out onto the water to put the theory into practice.

Professional InstructionOur Skippers are experienced instructors that make every crew member feel welcome and tailor their delivery to the experience and style of the crew
Competitive boatAlthough the taking part is often fun, we believe the full experience comes from pushing ourselves to the max and competing with other boats on the water with a view to win
High safety standardsMaintaining and equipping a yacht to a high standard is not an easy task. No expense is spared in ensuring the best equipment is selected and repairs are undertaken quickly and proficiently.
No PassengersAlthough we are happy to provide sight seeing adventures, this experience is a regatta so you can expect to be actively involved in sailing the boat, there isn't any rail meat on our boats.
