SKIPPERED SAILING AROUND THE UK

Are you a weekend sailor looking for more challenge, more adventure and to take your sailing to the next level?  We have the sailing events for you.

Looking for something a bit more challenging than flotilla cruising?  More interested in getting out to sea, out of sight of land, than following the pack from one anchorage to the next?  First Offshore Sailing is for you. 

When charter sailing holidays just don’t cut it and you need time for yourself.

When you want to learn more, experience more and live life onboard as a real sailor.

I aIt’s not all about life on board at sea – the travelling is good, but the desitination is worth seeing as well!

We choose our harbours carefully, so you can explore local food, local culture and fascinating places ashore.
