Assisted Sailing
For less experienced sailors who want to enjoy the delights of the Caribbean

For those who would like a little help

Already qualified but want a little assistance? Assisted sailing offers support for some or all of you holiday. Many of our bareboat charterers only sail once or twice a year and we aim to offer a helping hand at the start of your holiday. If you are RYA Day Skipper or ICC or ASA qualified but are either nervous about sailing bareboat or just a bit rusty then we can help you practice your skills with a professional skipper onboard, offering one on one personalised instruction. We highly recommend having an assisting skipper for one day if you have inexperienced crew or young children. We can show your crew what’s safe, what’s not, and ensure everyone knows their jobs in different situations to help ensure a stress free sailing holiday.

How does it work?

Assisted sailing offers flexibility and a relaxed environment. There is no pre-set time for this training, we simply “play it by ear” and see how every one is getting on after each day.

When you arrive, the skipper comes on board your yacht and sails with you to another island.  You are responsible for your skippers accommodation and ideally this is on board.   The time that you will need a skipper will vary, depending on how your confidence grows and how much tuition you would like each day.

For those new to sailing holidays, this time will cover all the important basics from safety, mooring, sails up and down, man overboard procedures to anchoring in bays. It is very relaxed teaching – at your pace!

For anyone looking for some additional coaching, whether it be to practice mooring, long lining, simply refreshing the crew on MOB techniques or to practice sailing in stronger winds with the family, this is a great way to build confidence. Whatever you want to learn in The Caribbean we are more than happy to show you.
