PRICES

Stacks Image 4105

We continually monitor our prices and are determined to offer all of our services as competitively as possible. If you do find a better offering elsewhere then let us know and we will do our best to beat it, along with a token of our appreciation.

NOTE : All of our prices are all-inclusive, so no hidden costs of RYA course packs which can cost an additional £40, and no mooring or marina fees, which can be as much as £35 per night. All-inclusive means all-inclusive... although if you decide to take a stroll on an evening to find a local hostelry for a wee shandy while sailing around the islands, I'm afraid the drinks are on you!

We understand that it is not always possible to fit in with our training schedule, either due to schedule or location, so we have created a flexible solution. The solution also can prove very cost effective where a larger group, such as a sailing school, can arrange all to be trained at the same time and can provide a classroom.

Basically, you provide the location and we provide the instructor and the equipment to deliver the training. All you pay for is a daily rate for the instructor, reasonable pre-agreed expenses and the cost of the RYA student training course packs, which we will confirm at time of booking. It's that simple!

INCLUSIVE - While some of our competitors expect the students to get out the calculator in order to figure out the shared cost of marina and mooring fees, we like to keep it simple... all-inclusive means, eh well, all-inclusive!

INCLUSIVE - Unlike many other sailing schools our prices are inclusive of the RYA course pack and all other materials required to complete the course... we'll even supply free drinks and biscuit to keep you going throughout the day!

PAYMENT - We generally use bank transfers for all payments to make things simple and reduce the bank charges, but are happy to work with whatever payment method works best for you, although we now have enough goats to last us a life time, so bartering is suspended until further notice.


PACKAGES - The combinations of your sail training needs and your available time to complete the training are endless. Rather than us trying to bundle something together for you which may or may not work, we will work with you as far as we can to meet your exact requirements.

FLEXIBLE - If there is a service that you can't find a price for please get in touch and if we are able to support your requirement we will do our best to deliver it at a price that will ensure you will take our hands off!

ACCOMMODATING - If we have a spare yacht and you are on a weekend or 5 day weekday theory course then you are more than welcome to use it free of charge.
