If you want to spend some enjoyable time on the water with like-minded people, build miles and hone your skills, then our mile builder trips will be perfect for you. We offer short two day sailing adventures along the south coast of England with expert tuition to help gain experience and confidence whether you only have some basic sailing experience or are an old hand getting back into the game.
Based on our 40ft yacht, mile builders are a great way for sailors to train and improve their skills before their next RYA exam while also adding miles to their log book. These trips are aimed at individuals with various skill levels and ambitions so each weekend is tailored to those onboard, let us know your goals and we will help you achieve them.
We currently have a couple of different mile building legs, all departing from Hamble:
Option 1 goes eastwards from Hamble to overnight in Brighton, then back to Hamble.
Option 2 goes westwards from Hamble to overnight in Weymouth, then back to Hamble.
Option 3 goes eastwards from Hamble to overnight in Eastbourne, then back to Hamble.
(this can be used as a 60 mile Skippered passage)
Due to Covid-19, we will be implementing measures to ensure the safety of both our customers and our staff. This means that we will be reducing the numbers allowed on the boat:
Each household will be restricted to 1 cabin for sleeping overnight and all are encouraged to remain above decks as much as possible.
These two day sessions are aimed at those who wish to have fun, gain confidence and get some distance under their belts while near to home. If you wish to partake in longer and more challenging jaunts, please have a look at our Offshore Mile Builder page

Meet on the boat in Hamble, in the evening for safety chats and a meet and greet so everyone gets to know one another. This is a good opportunity to let the instructor know exactly what you’d like to get from the experience. First night on board and sleeping in your cabin.
Leave the marina in the morning and begin the sailing and training towards that evenings destination, be it Brighton or Weymouth. During the day you will get the chance to practise your sailing skills, from boat handling, sail trimming and reefing and pilotage.
The evening will be spend moored up in a local marina and having dinner in a nice place on shore in either Brighton or Weymouth and a second night sleeping on board.
Up early (don’t get too tipsy the night before or you might regret it!) for the sail back to Hamble. If there’s anything that you still want to try or any questions you have, please bring it up with your skipper.
Everyone disembarks once the boat is back in Hamble and hopefully you’ve gained what you’ve needed from your trip, whether that was some new skills or just having some fun learning the ropes.
