Mile Building Sailing Trips for 2019 / 2020

The great advantage of our location is that we have equally free access to both the Mediterranean and the Atlantic. Sailing out West, the expansive Atlantic provides a unique and exhilarating opportunity to experience those long distance passages that are required to qualify for your Yacht Master or Coastal skipper certificates.

Ports of call in either direction will always depend on the weather conditions and students will be involved in route planning on all trips.
We help you with the training you need on how to handle yachts and offer various mile building courses during the year to gain experience from Gibraltar including Morocco, Ceuta, Spanish Coast, Atlantic and Tidal Portugal, Balearic Islands, Barcelona and more Mediterranean locations. Whether it’s just for fun or something more serious, we can help with a whole range of courses, training and Sailing Adventures.

KEY OBJECTIVES

  Gain experience and sea miles

  Learning about watch keeping

  Night sailing

  Yachtmaster qualifying passages

  Passage planning

  Using weather Forecasts

Each aspiring sailor on our Mile building trips (whatever their level of experience) joins the crew in the security and confidence that they are in the safe hands of an always present, fully qualified RYA instructor who will guide students and share their knowledge. Our students return happy and excited, having made new friends and rapidly improved their sailing skills.

Both Skippered passages of over 60 miles and night hours experience are a prerequisite when qualifying for Yacht Master and Coastal Skipper certificates. For that reason we incorporate 3 hour on-watch and 6 hour off-watch systems to enable you to earn your essential night hours.

 

6 is the maximum crew on each leg (plus of course, the skipper), on full trips this allows for 2 people to be on watch together.  A number of 60 mile or longer skippered passages can also be taken.

Whether you’re a complete novice or want to extend your sailing experience, widen your horizons with an exciting and exhilarating trip on one of the fastest, sleekest sailing yachts around, then contact us.
