The result is Sailing Phoenix Club. This is a FREE TO JOIN community for people who wish to learn or improve sailing skills.
All you need to do is email them, learn about the concept of the Club, and confirm your membership. Our dedication to empowering female sailors with confidence and skills remains.

Brian & Pippa with “Phoenix” and crew made it across the Atlantic from their previous base in Antigua.Their new home is Port Andratx, a lovely marina complex on the south west corner of Mallorca, and the base for Solaris Mediterranean Sea School for whom Pippa acts as Chief RYA Instructor. They will make Port Andratx their permanent base for an upcoming programme of cruising the Balearic Islands and beyond.

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:


Rya Sailing School

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 assisting 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 is renowned.

Girls only sailing in the Caribbean



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.
