Offshore Skills Development weekend - Sail Handling

5th - 7 August

Skills Development weekend from Fri eve 5th Aug to Sunday 7th Aug, skipper by an RYA Instructor.


This is a weekend focussed on yacht handling skills under sail. By the end of the weekend you should feel more comfortable with all aspects of manoeuvring a yacht using just her sails. It will give attendees the confidence not to rush for the engine start button so soon but to feel confident that most situations can be dealt with under sail and that should your engine pack up it needn't be the end of that day's boating.

This course is suitable for those whose skills are at RYA Day skipper level or higher.

Below is an example of what will be covered though the exact makeup of the weekend will be (as always in sailing) to some extent determined by conditions and experience of crew.

Saturday night will be spent in a different port.


Efficient tacking/gybing

Putting in /shaking out reefs under sail

Sail trim refresh

Sailing in confined areas (short tacking up a river or sailing into a harbour)

Sailing on/off anchor

Sailing back to MOB (simulated engine failure)

Sailing on/off mooring buoys

Sailing on/off pontoons

Rudderless sailing (steering a yacht using crew weight and sail trim)

Cost of the training is £355
