A wide range of people of different ages and backgrounds come to Yacht Sail Training every year. The majority of our customers are aged between 25-60 years, but young professionals, couples and individuals also make up a significant proportion our students. Our clients come from all over the world.
Families with children aged 14 or over are very welcome to book a Private Yacht Group, so that they have the use of an entire yacht and Skipper / RYA Instructor for the duration of their course / experience.
Our individual booking courses have a minimum age of 18 years old.
Private Family Charters and Private Yacht Charter can have younger onboard as long as they are accompanied by adults that will look after them.
Often couples will book a Private Yacht Training just for themselves, to have that extra time together – such bookings are more bespoke and there are other custom services that we can offer to make your booking that little bit extra special – flowers, chocolates or champagne on arrival? You should Contact Us to discuss the possibilities.
Some intelligent thought goes into who we try and mix together on our courses – we have a custom-designed computerised system to help us decide what make-up the crews should be – we will try and place you with others that we think might have common interests or goals;
For instance, if you are booking as a couple, where He wishes to go for Day Skipper, and She wishes to try out Competent Crew, we’ll try and put you on with a couple of similar age, experience and goals – and, if English isn’t your first language we’ll aim to put you on with another customer that may have the same language, or even with a Course-Instructor that speaks it, if we have one available.
