Fast-Track Courses

We offer sailing fast-track service for Day Skipper, Coastal Skipper and Yachtmaster qualifications, particularly useful for anyone wishing to embark on a career in the marine sectors eg Super-Yacht crew or commercial angling.

Candidates will be accommodated on board one of the yachts when studying the practical elements of the course, with food, berthing fees and fuel paid for. We use a 2017 Dufour 382. You will have one of our full-time professional skippers with you at all times during your practical training and the course co-ordinator is always available whilst carrying out the shore-based elements. Shore-based elements do not include food and accommodation but we could possibly find a yacht for you to sleep on board if you are taking part outside of our busy season.
