Girls Go Sailing is for groups of 3 – 5 ladies wishing to learn to sail, or further their qualifications through RYA training from Yachtmaster Instructor Pippa Turton (Pippa the “Skippa”), or simply enjoy a fun Mediterranean Sailing Vacation.
GIRLS GO SAILING is relocating! On May 16th we are sailing our Grand Soleil 46.3 across the Atlantic to Port Andratx, Mallorca via the Azores and Lagos in Portugal. This next adventure will introduce us to the beautiful landscapes and fantastic sailing grounds of the Balearics and the western, northern and eastern coastlines of the Mediterranean.
PIPPA the “SKIPPA”, Solaris Mediterranean Sea School Chief Instructor is featured in the November 2018 edition of the Caribbean All At Sea magazine.This is a well deserved acknowledgement of her contribution to sailing in our previous region.The article is on page 44 of the publication but can also be read here:
Solaris Mediterranean Sea School is an RYA recognised Training Centre based in Port Andratx, Mallorca. Pippa was appointed Chief Instructor on May 1st and will be working in her new role from the moment we arrive. She will also be available to train for Aigua Sea School in Palma where she will concentrate on Yachtmaster Training. Her reputation for bringing candidates successfully through their Yachtmaster examination will therefore continue.
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 Solaris Mediterranean Sea School. However, some people just want to learn in a fun atmosphere without the rigours of a fixed syllabus. For those we offer high quality Sailing Training with the same RYA qualified Instructors in a more informal environment.
