We offer a number of different offshore Mile Building trips for those who want to take their sailing to the next level or build miles towards qualifications. Mile builders are the best way to develop your skills in the most cost-effective way. Our European Mile Builders take you away from the coast of the UK and offer blue water sailing experiences. Those who join our trips tell us they leave feeling more confident to skipper longer more adventurous passages.
We have a number of different legs to cater to a range of availabilities, our goal is to ensure everyone on board has an enjoyable time and leaves being a little more skilled.
We ensure there is always a professional instructor onboard to answer questions and give guidance.
Please bear in mind that our schedule is subject to change if bad weather forces us to delay departures, pull in to wait out a storm, we have to make any last-minute changes due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic or for any unforeseen circumstances.
