PRESS RELEASE – Seafarer open Solent RYA Centre

New Solent based sailing school

Flotilla and beach club holiday specialist Seafarer has announced the opening of their new Solent based sailing  school , operating from Shamrock Quay marina in Southampton.  This is in addition to their RYA recognised training centres already operating in Sibenik in Croatia and in Lefkas, Greece.
A comprehensive range of RYA yacht courses from beginner to Yachtmaster are on offer, whilst an additional initiative relates to refresher and pre-flotilla courses aimed at clients planning a flotilla or charter holiday, wishing to update their skills.

Managing Director and school principal Chris Lorenzo commented,

«Many of our clients sail perhaps only once a year on holiday, so our UK Sailing school offers weekend refresher courses, specifically designed for those planning a Mediterranean sailing holiday. There is emphasis on skills such as anchoring and ‘stern-to’ mooring, which many British sailors are not used to’.
Experienced sailors who do not have a qualification can formalise their experience with an ICC test,  which can easily be done over a weekend, ensuring that they comply with regulations  relating to skipper qualifications when chartering abroad.»

Weekend courses start at £249, whilst 5 day RYA courses start from £499.

In the opposite direction, those who have qualified in non tidal waters, have the opportunity to do a 2 day tidal conversion course. In addition, Yachtmaster preparation courses will involve a combination of Mediterranean and UK tidal  sailing, ensuring the broadest experience in a variety of conditions.
Weekend courses start at £249, whilst 5 day RYA courses start from £499.
