We are delighted to announce that, in the furtherance of the Girls go Sailing project, we have put together an ALL FEMALE Team of lady instructors for the coming winter season.

GIRLS ONLY SAILING
Girls Go Sailing has evolved from a concept many moons ago when Pippa, our Chief Instructor, was living in South Devon and became the mentor for a group of keen, not so young, girlies who wanted to race across the English Channel. After a fun race, and not too bad a result, Pippa was a regular on these girls only sailing adventures.
Female instructors for women only training courses
We offer formal RYA training following the Yachtmaster Sail Scheme and the RYA National Power Boat Scheme through our partner business Miramar Sailing School. However, some people just want to learn in a fun atmosphere without the rigours of a fixed syllabus. For those we offer Miramar Sailing Training with the same RYA qualified Instructors in a more informal environment.
CRUISING & MILE BUILDING
Female skippers for women only sailing vacations
Cruise the beautiful blue waters of the Caribbean with a group of like minded women looking for fun, and adventure. Enjoy the holiday of a lifetime that includes sun, sea, sand and of course, sailing. Our female skippers take you to all the delights of the islands in the Caribbean Chain with destinations limited only by how long you have got!
