WHY SHOULD I DO AN RYA DAY SKIPPER COURSE?

Imagine this…you’re looking for a holiday or some time away from home a little different from the norm. Your friend has started sailing and has told you how enjoyable it is, having the freedom to explore areas of the world that you normally wouldn’t be able to, the refreshing feeling of skimming across the open water with the wind blowing through your hair. Sounds great eh? But you don’t have much experience on the water and you’re not sure you’d have the confidence to sail a 38ft yacht yourself.

ITS JUST ONE MONTH TO GO UNTIL THE ROLEX FASTNET RACE!!

This year Sailing Logic will have 7 teams racing again on our fleet of Beneteau First 40’s. We are very happy to have lots of new faces amongst some of the Sailing Logic old school who are back for another go at this amazing race. The teams are all getting into their campaigns now with all completed their training weekends and also at least one of the offshore qualifying races.
