Tidal practice and mile building.

Our Training Centre organises sailing trips around the Solent every year at the beginning and at the end of the season. Our aim is to give the opportunity for tidal practice as well as mile building to those who want to build up confidence and gain experience sailing in tidal waters. The informal training weeks we organise in the Solent are ideal for those who want to prepare themselves for assessments like Yachtmaster. During the week, we transfer the theory into practice, and we experience passages in tidal waters.
