As a Company MKM Sailing Centre we run most of our yachting activities and courses on our Beneteau 40CR, “Arcturus of Dover”. As a boat she has an excellent racing and cruising pedigree, which means she is a very stable platform to use for teaching with good accommodation with 3 separate cabins and hot & cold running water.
Most or our RYA courses take place over five days or a series of weekends, and are based on living aboard the yacht. You can expect to be taught by an experienced, qualified, friendly instructor on board our boat or where required on your own boat, with a maximum of up to five trainees. All marina fees are included within the course price. The RYA allow you to enter our programme at any level, provided that you have the correct level of experience but you need to be realistic when assessing your current experience and abilities which we can either discuss with you or take an assessment day with us where we will not only assess your sailing level but also have the time to discuss your requirements before booking the right course for you.
All our sail cruising courses last 5 days with the exception of Start Yachting which is a two day course. you will live aboard the yacht and be involved in all aspects of cruising from keeping watch to washing up. You will be required to bring suitable clothing packed in a soft bag, a list of essentials will be provided when booking. . Please note our yachts have a No Smoking Policy.
