Massive thank you to Jamie and all the staff and other instructors at Southern Cross Yachting! 10/10 experience from booking to sailing to instruction to food whilst onboard.
Absolutely one of the best things I’ve ever done and now I’m addicted to sailing!
A great place to learn all things about sailing, experienced Captains who are only to happy to answer any and all questions, a great experience,
Well organized with a wonderful team and instructors. Completed my Comp Crew and looking forward to doing the Day skipper next.
We were lucky enough to spend a day with Jamie on Moreton bay and can’t speak highly enough about it. Three of us with varied previous experience of sailing joined with a father and son to share in a day of learning the ropes. The day was tailored to our varied needs and at all times we were able to ask questions and glean experience from Jamie’s wealth of knowledge. We would highly recommend signing up for a course if you’re interested in getting back on the water after a hiatus. Thanks so much guys! It was a priceless day!
Equipment and instructors
The course will be taught by experienced RYA and AS qualified instructors using our high-speed, rigid inflatable rescue craft.
You will spend the first day learning how to safely drive the boats and the second-day developing basic pilotage skills which you will then use to execute a short passage.
We operate in small groups, according to strict teaching ratios, to ensure all participants have plenty of time, in the driver’s seat, in charge of the boat. .
