Start Yachting

Dates TBC, Cost: £678 visually impaired, £558 sighted guide

If you are interested in this course please get in touch to discuss possible dates. Based on the beautiful south coast of England, our Start Yachting Course is a fantastic opportunity for novices and those with limited sailing experience to spend a week living on a 40ft yacht learning to sail. Starting from the Southampton area, you’ll spend seven days exploring the picturesque coastline of the Solent, visiting harbours and marinas along the way. As an active member of the crew you’ll work on the day-to-day running of the boat, learning how to sail and developing your seamanship skills. If desired, there is also the opportunity for you to work towards an RYA recognised qualification. Our skipper is an RYA Yacht Master Instructor and has many years’ experience in working with people with disabilities. This course is suitable for adults with a physical or sensory disability. However due to the nature of the boat, the saloon is down a steep stairway and the cabins are not accessible by wheelchair.
