5 – 10 May Lymington – Lymington (The Solent), 100 miles, Sail Training on the level of a Day Skipper or Coastal Skipper
For the season of 2015 I am planning to become a recognized RYA Training Centre. This means that my sail training weeks are becoming recognized as official “Start Yachting”, “Competent Crew”, “Day Skipper” or “Coastal Skipper” Courses. After a successful completion of a course, guests would be entitled to receive the official acknowledgment by means of an RYA certificate.
This Leg 4/2015 is planned to become a sail training week on either the level of a Day Skipper or a Coastal Skipper, depending on the participants’ pre-course experience. If I will have become a recognized RYA Training Centre by then, candidates will have the opportunity to receive an official RYA certificate after a successful completion of the course. If, for some reason, Reginasailing would not become a recognized Training Centre by the RYA by this time, this leg 4/2015 will, nevertheless, consist of the very same curriculum, but without an official RYA Day Skipper Certificate afterwards.
We will sail in The Solent between the Isle of Wight and the British mainland on the south coast of England. This has been called the “Mecca of sailing” and is a very suitable training ground offering all aspects of cruising, from tidal waters to traffic and many places to sail to in sheltered waters. We will start in the cozy little town of Lymington and be berthed close to the renown Lymington Yacht Club, where I also held some talks about women and sailing the year before.

– it is assumed that you have a good knowledge in boat handling to the standards of a Day Skipper and navigational knowledge to the standards of the Coastal Skipper theory level, which is very similar to the Yachtmaster level. See here.
