Sail aboard a top quality Oyster yacht offering high levels of equipment, catering and character. We even provide duvets and towels. Most customers return, often bringing family and friends.
Courses run for seven days and apart from teaching the RYA syllabus, time is taken to explore this fantastic area. We also concentrate on culinary matters with good food and wine. In addition to RYA courses, we offer pure cruising giving experienced (or inexperienced) sailors sea miles. Fourteen day cruises are available to cruise the Outer Hebrides and St Kilda.
Practical RYA courses are available on modern well equipped yachts. Courses are available from Competent Crew to Yachtmaster offshore preparation. During the five days the experienced instructor will conduct your training in the waters around the Isle of Skye. This may be south to the Small Isles or north up the Inner Sound to Portree, depending on prevailing weather.
Come and sail around the beautiful islands of the West Coast of Scotland on board my Sadler 34 ‘Speedwell’ and enjoy the spectacular anchorages and idyllic harbours. Meals are prepared on board and one taken ashore at one of the eating places well known to food lovers. Benefit from my years of sailing experience with the bonus of stunning scenery.
Forth sail provides the highest quality tuition to students aboard the Sigma 38, ‘Stark Ravin’. We operate out of Port Edgar marina near Edinburgh, and cruise within the Firth of Forth and the North Sea. This area covers all aspects of sailing from very busy shipping channels to sleepy little fishing harbours and can provide a very varied and interesting experience.
Enjoy your training in one of the best cruising areas in the world. Maximum of four students with the chance to enjoy the wonderful scenery of the islands while learning with an Ocean Yachtmaster Instructor with over 230,000 miles experience at sea. 43ft ocean going Ketch.
