Adult voyages and courses

Throughout the sailing season we run a number of RYA Competent Crew, Day Skipper Practical, and Yachtmaster Preparation & Exam six day courses, as well as occasional expedition voyages specifically for adults. We regularly take part in the annual Pilot Cutter World Championship (Pilot Cutter Review) racing weekend in St Mawes, and the Paimpol Sea Shanty Festival in Brittany every other year. For those sailors keen to increase their nautical miles, we have two passage voyages this summer at the beginning and end of our Tall Ships Races 2017 expedition which are open to adults. The first is from Ramsgate to Halmstad, Sweden in June and the second from Ramsgate to Plymouth in August.

All voyages start and finish in Plymouth, unless stated otherwise, and follow the RYA Cruising syllabus.
