  • I am licensed to train you in the RYA Competent Crew and Day Skipper (Sail) Practical Courses as well as the International Certificate of Competence (ICC).

  • Courses I run have to be accredited through Karen & Alex at Hamble Point Sailing School  (HPSS - A registered RYA Sailing School) to comply with legislation and to offer certification. HPSS will carry out the necessary checks and deal with the money.

  • RYA Competent Crew requires no experience 

  • RYA Day Skipper (Sail) requires completion of a Theory Course to enable certification. This can be done through HPSS - Online


       I would recommend you complete this before you take your practical course

  • RYA Day Skipper (Sail) requires some previous practical experience


  • Both Day Skipper & Competent Crew practical courses run over a 5 day course and can be run together (Ideal for families)

  • To Book or to discuss your requirements you can either contact me directly on 07976 289650/click the Get in Touch button or by calling HPSS on 023 8045 7110 (Quoting: Kasara)

  • Quoting: Kasara will mean you get me and Kasara, rather than one of the mainstream school boats thus offering you the ultimate in comfort and sail cruising whilst you are learning. "Live, Learn, Sail" 

  • Current Covid thinking suggests that those onboard need to form a "bubble" from 2 to 4 people. Kasara and I will be exclusively available to you. The courses will follow the format of day sails from and back to Hamble Point. I will leave Kasara to you at night and return first thing in the morning

  • Course prices quoted here are for the "exclusive use of Kasara" for you and your bubble, and include catering packs for the week. 2 Persons - £995 pp, 3 persons - £795 pp, 4 persons £695 pp



  • If you decide not to go the RYA Accreditation route and instead just want to be confident in handling or delivering your own boat then I can coach you aboard your own boat or aboard Kasara
