Girls Only Courses in Greece and Southampton
New for 2020 we’ve started running girls only training courses at our bases in the UK and Greece. We will be running RYA Competent Crew and RYA Day Skipper along with weekend refresher courses and mile builders. These are taught by our resident female instructors. We believe that sailing should be accessible to all, and we have girls of all ages come to learn with us in a supportive and fun environment.
The wonderful sport of sailing should be open to all and in the past sailing has been seen as a male-heavy sport. We want to change this and believe sailing should be for all no matter their age or gender. In the past, we have found that there is a lot of nervousness among couples on our flotilla surrounding what they would do in an emergency. We believe that specific girls only training is a great way of providing confidence and skills for those of all levels and reverse some of the gender bias yachting has been known for.
Our girls only training courses encourage a calm environment where we operate a yacht as a team. We welcome all questions and maintaining a safe, supportive and fun environment is the main objective. Our previous students have found this can give an excellent confidence boost and see a real development of sailing skills. Many of our students come alone, but we also welcome small groups and don’t forget these courses are open to everyone.
