OK so sailing is banned and the marina locked up…
However it isn’t forever, like winter storms and other inconveniences that stop us sailing it will end, maybe on December 2nd – maybe not, but it will end. When it does we will be raring to go. We like winter sailing because the Solent is quiet and the anchorages largely empty.
When sailing was again allowed after lockdown 1.0 we had a rush of enquiries, so if you are interested get in touch and put your name down for a trial sail. We currently have a waitiing list but if the weather is agreable we will be back to day-sailing Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
For more on winter sailing follow this link. to the Sailing Projects website where you will find helpful articles. If you are a beginner take time to read our article on sailing etiquette. It was written to bring new members up to speed with onboard social skills and domestic niceties that make for a harmonious boat.
The great strength of the Milebuilding Club is quality training on the Solent delivered one day-sail at a time. We schedule sailing three days a week – all year-round.
No complicated formalities – just turn up and sail!
Would you like to develop your sailing skills? Perhaps you would like to get into sailing but don’t fancy intensive 5 day courses – or have you taken a ‘skippering’ course only to be left feeling that you aren’t quite there in terms of skills and confidence?
The Milebuilding Club has a long-standing background in taking not-quite-there-yet sailors and turning them into competent, savvy skippers with the all-round skills to confidently buy or charter a yacht or succesfully tackle the Yachtmaster exam.
We welcome new members with all levels of experience from complete beginner to those who have sailed in the past and would now like to consolidate their existing skills.
