Some new owners may feel a little unsure when collecting their yacht, managing their first outings under sail or motor, undertaking longer voyages (perhaps a first ocean crossing or just a trip to a nearby island). Or maybe you just need to build up your sea miles for future qualifications.

Skipper Yacht's experienced yachtsmen will be on hand to give assistance in the handover from the builder or broker, give advice where required on safety aspects, assist in passage planning and be on deck during that first sail. We can help owners get more from their boat and sails - whether a little more speed or a more comfortable and relaxing day out.

Please note that we provide advice and recommendations based on many miles of racing and cruising experience; as we are not a sailing school we do not provide formal instruction or qualifications. We provide quality advice and assistance where required.
