Sail Training Weekends 2020

 

Join us onboard our Ocean Racing Yacht as we share some of the skills and knowledge we sail by. Whether it be sail trim, heavy weather techniques, night sailing or the important question of just how do I cook apple pie at sea, we have it covered.

Join us at Kip Marina, Scotland’s Premier marina where we will begin with important familiarisation and safety briefings. With a full day of activities planned we will be covering an array of hints, tips and techniques both ashore and on the water. With sail trim and handling techniques being done as we sail you can expect to visit another port overnight. Arriving after dark will see us able to brush up on some all important night sailing skills.

  • Safety Equipment Maintenance (Life Jackets, Life rafts, Person Overboard Recovery equipment etc)

  • Heavy Weather preparations (Storm Sails, Drogues, Sea Anchors etc)
