Our Solent Mile Builder Club was created to support our ethos of being inclusive and getting everyone sailing. Yacht insurance has evolved to a point where those without Yachtmaster certificates cannot charter a yacht, however, the Yachtmaster certificate requires experience as a skipper. This is obtainable overseas as part of a flotilla but that setup does not suit everyone. Our club allows like-minded individuals to propose a trip on our WhatsApp group and anyone who is interested in joining can do so at a very low cost. We put one of our skippers onboard to ensure insurance compliance and safety, but give you the freedom to take command of a yacht from passage planning to crew management. Whether you’re working towards qualifications or simply want to spend a fun day on the water, you’ll find a proposal that suits you.
