The Sailing Yachts

One important point to consider when booking any RYA sailing course or sailing holiday is the age of the yacht you will be sailing on, many RYA sailing courses provide old ex-charter vessels that have suffered multiple groundings over the years, so are less safe, and less reliable than a newer vessel with a known history. 


For your safety we buy all our yachts Brand new, ultimately this means we know the history of all the vessels we use. Currently our fleet is 5x identically matched Jeanneau 389s launched brand new in late 2016, we guarantee your RYA sailing course will be on one of these vessels.


The Location

Gibraltar, situated at the junction between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean, it is host to complex and powerful surface flows. 

The local tidal streams interact with the current leading to fairly complex surface flow calculations, and if you get it wrong you may well need to replan for an alternative destination.


Your RYA sailing course instructor will guide you through this complex area.


If you can work out tides in Gibraltar, you can do it anywhere!
