Bespoke Own Boat Training

We want to help you to get the most out of your yacht. All of our Assisted Passages can include a level of instruction but we can also offer for dedicated training times. Either way, with our experienced Skipper/Instructor onboard you will gain confidence in safety.

Informal training / coaching

  • Do you want to sail somewhere new but would like the confidence of having an experienced skipper onboard to support you?

  • Would you like to participate in an event such at the Round the Island race or Cowes week but not feel ready to do it unaided?

  • Would you like some informal training for you and your family / friends, without the pressure of a formal syllabus to follow?

  • Would you like training focused on specific skills, such as manoeuvring under power or sail trim

  • Do you want to take a sailing holiday with family or friends but would appreciate an experienced Skipper / Instructor onboard to provide coaching, support and encouragement

We can provide all of these. Having our Skipper onboard can help you to get the most out of your sailing, whilst developing your skills and confidence in a relaxed, enjoyable way.

Own Boat Training Costs

These are based on a day rate, so you can choose how long you want us to stay onboard with you and how many people you want to include in the training.

Our day rates are just £170 per day for durations of less than 7 days and £160 for longer periods. As the owners would normally be onboard, covering the passage cost and provisioning directly, then the only other cost from YachMovers is for travel to/from the yacht.

RYA Sail training

Own boat training can also be a cost effective, flexible and convenient way to access RYA Sailing courses. Working with our partner, Hamble School of Yachting, we can provide the very best RYA training.

These courses require specific training days to be built into the passage, at suitable locations (i.e. ports with sufficient facilities for the full sylabus to be taught).
