At Second Star Sailing, we aim to provide you with a wide variety of options to further your sailing experience.
Improving your skills or going for a full RYA recognised training course on your own vessel so you are able to directly apply the training to the boat that you will be using most – your own!
This can include running either RYA Sail Cruising or RYA Powerboat courses on your own boat.
It is up to you to choose: it could be a refresher course, a more advanced RYA certification, or a whole new area of boating, if, for example, you have always been a powerboater and now you find yourself on your first sailboat with way too many lines to handle and possibly no engine!
Whether you have just purchased a new boat and need to upgrade your training to match your new vessel, or are keen to try new tricks with your existing boat, or simply feel a little bit rusty, we can help you learn or improve your skills in the comfort of your own surroundings.
We often have requests from boat owners for courses run at a slower pace than our standard courses, and that is also an option! Just adding a few days into the program so that we can cover the RYA syllabus while giving you time to enjoy your boat and your surroundings is a great change to the standard five day course!
Generally we can arrange for our instructors to come to your boat’s location. We will check with you in advance that your boat has the necessary safety equipment on board as we can only conduct training on vessels that are properly equipped – we can help with details of what is required.
Wherever you and your boat are located, our instructors can be available for bespoke training.Just give us a call and we can talk you through the options.
Own Boat Training is available in Antigua and in Italy.
