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 to give 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 preparation. During the five days the experienced instructor will conduct your training in the waters around the Isle of Skye. This might be to the Small Isles or north up the Inner Sound to Portree, depending on prevailing weather.

Geronimo Sailing School offers students the chance to sail, (in our opinion) some of the best sailing waters in the UK if not the world. If you do not believe us then come and prove us wrong. Give us a call to discuss your requirements.

Forthsail 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.

Enjoy your training in one of the best cruising areas in the world.
