Own Boat Tuition and confidence builder
We understand that sometimes you want to learn in the familiar environment of your own boat and with people you know. As boat owners of yachts for many years we are not only instructors who can develop your skills from our vast experience but we also understand the concerns owners have that in certain situations can effect confidence.
Own boat tuition is a great way to learn sailing skills adapted to you and your vessel. We offer personalised tuition on your own boat. Bacchus Yachting is often approached by people wanting to be more confident manoeuvring their vessel in tight situations such as on and off pontoons and we can arrange sessions for this. We are also able to support people who may be completely new to boat ownership and have plans to travel far afield. Simply, we will work around your needs and encourage you to develop as owner and skipper. The day can also be used, not only for boating and sailing manoeuvres, but also if you wish to work on engine skills, electronics, and advice on maintenance.
We can offer this service along the south coast and the Solent, covering the majority off the boating areas.
Own boat tuition is for the boat’s owner and the owner’s close friends. We can offer any of our usual RYA training courses or assess your level and work alongside you to make a personalised training plan. Your boat does not need to be safety coded with the Coastguard, but it should be suitably equipped with safety equipment.
Our own boat tuition is delivered by commercially endorsed Yachtmasters™, with RYA instructing qualifications.
Please speak to us for requirements outside the local area as there could be an extra charge to cover the instructor’s travel from Haslar to where the boat is based.
