Skipper Development / Refresher Courses

Skipper Development / Refresher Courses

Firstly – you’re not alone!
Perhaps you’ve achieved a qualification,possibly some time ago, and don’t feel confident enough to go for the next level yet. Or maybe you’re due to go on a cruising holiday and want to brush off the cobwebs before you take responsibility for the safety of others.

Experience is what separates the great from the good, and there is no substitute for it when the pressure is on. Our Skipper development/refresher weeks are a great way to polish your skills and broaden your knowledge.

What’s covered on this course?

Our instructors will take your abilities and goals into account to tailor the week. You’ll get the chance to visit different places, build up your sail handling and navigation experience, practice procedures and even tackle exercises designed to put your logical thinking, wind awareness and navigation skills to the test.

After some tuition on the specific areas you want to work on, you’ll feel confident in your abilities again and ready for the next stage of your journey.
