Effective training at Coastal Skipper level requires longer passages beyond the range possible with day sailing so courses are best conducted on a residential (live aboard) basis.  When Covid restrictions have been in place some of these courses have run as non-residential (ie day sailing only).  But with restrictions lifted all our Coastal Skipper courses are now residential with yachts staying away from base overnight.

The availability table below shows dates and prices of Practical Sailing Weeks (5 day courses).  You can request any of these for your Coastal Skipper course but to ensure an appropriate crew experience mix we may ask you to consider alternative dates.
