Although our core activity is Bareboat Charters, we are also an RYA Training Establishment and offer the full range of practical cruising courses on our fleet of 11 modern boats ranging from 32-44ft.

 Isle of Skye Yachts are delighted to be able to offer you an opportunity to attend one of their RYA Practical Courses. The 5 day courses with an RYA qualified Yachtmaster Instructor will usually take place aboard the new Jeanneau SO 379 "Voyager of Sleat" or the Beneteau Oceanis 393 “Sleat Lady”

Sailing area The courses will start in late afternoon with a briefing and an opportunity to find your way around the yacht, and, depending on the weather a short “shake down” cruise to Loch Nevis, Isle Ornsay or Doune. Depending on the weather, in five days the Instructor may take you North up the Inner Sound to Plockton, Rona and Portree or head south to the Small Isles and Tobermory. At the end of the five days in this wonderful cruising area, as well as learning from the course you will have visited a selection of interesting places and have had an enjoyable holiday.

We aim to have a mix of people studying for different certificates on each course so if you are an aspiring Coastal Skipper you may have one or two genuine Competent Crew to lead and inspire! Contact us directly for more details.
