Skills Development and Mile Builders
Skills Development and Mile Builders.
We want to give people the opportunity to get out and do some more miles over a weekend. To escape the Solent but still have the comfort of having an instructor on board.
With this in mind we have set some dates in the calendar to run offshore development and mile builder events - see below.
The events will start from the River Hamble and will be Friday-Sunday events (or Friday-Monday for the bank holidays).
Where we go will ultimately depend on the weather and tide but the aim is to do some longer passages; taking the boats along the coast East or West and potentially across the Channel to France…. weather permitting.
It will be the opportunity to go to ports outside our usual cruising area. There will more than likely be some night hours along the way. We are expecting mixed ability crews; so there should be something for everyone to learn. Whether thats Day Skippers wanting to put there Navigation theory into practice or Competent Crews who want to spend more time on the helm.
We want to offer more variety so these will be events run by a variety of instructors on a variety of boats throughout the season. If we get a lot of interest there is also the possibility of running a mini flotilla with an instructor on one boat and an experienced skipper on another all heading to the same destination.
We'll do our best to accommodate your needs. Be it pilotage, passage plans, mooring, helming etc or simply concentrating on areas of seamanship that you think may need attention from an instructor.
Please email the admin office for booking and further details
Pricing £330 per weekend, provisions and fuel included. Moorings will be shared amongst crew.
