Private instructor on your own sailing boat

To bring a private instructor/coach on board your own boat is a brilliant way for you and your family or friends to learn all you need to safely take your boat out on the water. Perhaps you just bought your very first boat and want to go through the basics? We will help you to check the rigging and advise you on how to safely manoeuvre and dock the boat, as well as how to put up the sails and discover the utmost of your boat’s sailing capacities. In short, we’re happy to help you get the most out of your boat!

Having a sail coach onboard can help to raise your competence to the next level. Maybe you need help when it comes to the tricky navigating in the archipelago? Or a course focusing on your spinnaker equipment? Or even a review of the boat prior to your first race?  We have award winning sailing instructors on our team who can come onboard your boat and teach you how to maximise your speed and trim.

We truly enjoy coaching in this personal way and because of the diversity of our team, we have the competence to help you with most any requests or challenges you might have!
