The Milebuilding Club
The Milebuilding Club enjoy a day on the Solent
“A brilliant way to build skills & socialise on the Solent” The great strength of the Milebuilding Club is weekly, year- round day-sailing – the kind of regular sailing that is easily incorporated into a busy life
The Milebuilding Club on the Medina in Cowes
Would you like to develop your sailing skills? Perhaps you would like to get into sailing but don’t fancy taking intensive courses – or have you taken a ‘skippering’ course only to be left feeling that you aren’t quite there yet 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 properly competent skippers with the all-round skills to confidently charter a yacht or tackle the Yachtmaster exam - and pass. The Club is aimed fair and square at the genuine sailing enthusiast who seeks civilised company and a relaxed non-intensive learning environment. We welcome new members with all levels of experience from complete neophyte to those who have sailed sporadically – perhaps over many years, and now want to consolidate their skills. Please contact us to find out more.
How does it work? We sail Thunderbolt, our Bavaria 38 from Southampton Town Quay marina. We day-sail every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, weather permitting. Sailing is organised by email and Google calendar. Club members can see at a glance who is sailing and when. A small membership means great availability and our ‘easy-in easy-out’ terms makes the club a low risk, high value route to genuine all-round sailing competence. We have a maximum of 6 people on board and so far we have never had to ‘ration’ the sailing. Terms - at a glance •Trial sail day: £75 •Membership term: Minimum 3 months •Membership fees: £225 / month
What it is: •A way to build new skills and consolidate existing abilities - with nice people •A club for sailors who would like to avoid a boat- ownership ‘runaway-costs’ nightmare. •A club for sailors who like to sail regularly without fuss and formalities each time.
What it isn’t: •Something new - this is our 8th year •A syndicate •Shared ownership •Yacht charter •Corporate •Complicated •Stuffy •Elitist
Who it is for: •Ex boat-owners, who will appreciate the capped costs, no- maintenance and not having to find crew. •Newcomers, who will enjoy friendly tuition, perhaps before moving on to their own boat or chartering abroad. •Anyone who would like to sail with an easy going group of enthusiasts.
