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. Shared and sole occupancy is available to book.

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.
