Experienced skippers

For those who are familiar with the west coast of Scotland with a good idea of the itinerary they want to follow but would like the support of an experienced skipper to run the boat. 

With this option the skipper will remove the weight of responsibility but will support you to be involved in running the boat, giving you and your crew space to take turns at passage planning, skippering, navigation etc. This is especially good where you have the skills to run the boat but are looking for local knowledge and experience as a ‘safety net’.

Conversely you may wish to enjoy an adventure in a more relaxed way where the skipper will, in discussion with you, set an itinerary based on  their local knowledge and prevailing conditions.  You can then leave Skippering to them, allowing you to get involved in sailing the boat without the responsibility of safety, navigation etc.

All our skippers are experienced RYA instructors and will be happy to offer informal tuition during your charter.

Booking by enquiry – contact us to discuss your dates.

What our customers say

The 5 days that I spent with Tom was honestly one of the best sailing/learning experiences I have had. It has renewed my confidence and love for sailing and I look forward to doing more courses and spending more time on La Girafe III.

“I was made to feel very welcome right from the start. I would thoroughly recommend doing your Day Skipper with these guys, I not only really enjoyed the experience, I came ashore at the end desperate to book my next trip.”

Joe Halwood

Day Skipper, RYA Sailing Course

“The sailing was a real treat, including learning the key skills. As well as the great coastal scenery, there was also the various wildlife including lots of dolphins tracking the yacht, encountering other vessels (including a Royal Navy nuclear submarine).”
