The great strength of the milebuilding club is that we offer weekly, year-round day-sailing – the kind of regular sailing that is easily incorporated into a busy schedule.
Along with the tea drinking and chat we do plenty of training; not in an intensive way, more like coaching. Hopefully a steady progression toward a goal of seamanlike situational awareness and calm competence.
The club has a small membership of mostly, but not all, guys, who are mostly, but not all, in or around their fifth decade. We do lots of training but it isn’t about logging miles at any cost, or a new trick every five minutes, it is about good company and great days out on the water – without a whole lot of fussing to organise.
Our members generally come to us with abilities around the Day-Skipper level; which is to say they mostly lack the skills and confidence to do their own thing. The club offers the opportunity to build the necessary skills with like-minded people in a relaxed atmosphere - one day at a time.
Some members engage in more intensive study of both theory and practical subjects, usually studying theory online and travelling to more exotic climes for the practical. This approach has taken one member from scratch to Yachtmaster Offshore in 18 months.
Sailing with us costs just £225 per month with no nasty annual bills or a maintenance commitment.
