Brandy in Portpatrick

Brandy in Portpatrick

Hopefully my web site has provided a picture of the passion I have for sailing. All I want from my time aboard Brandy is a fun time with like minded people. To fulfil my personal objective, and ensure I don’t get grumpy, I limit the period I work Brandy.

For 2017 I am running 6 RYA Training Weeks covering Competent Crew, Day Skipper and Coastal Skipper courses. These 2017 RYA training weeks will run 5 x 1 weeks in the Spring and 2 x 1 weeks in the Autumn, 7 weeks in all. These are programmed early and late to ensure I have enough night hours to work through the RYA syllabus. .please note I run these over 6 days not 4.5 days as most sea schools do. To get 4 students truly competent at their chosen level needs time and patience…. Have at look on my RYA training page for more details.

The 2017 Sailing Holiday Weeks will run in the summer months of June to September when Scotland smiles on lucky sailors. The duration and timing of these fun weeks varies dependent upon the timing of the festivals or events we are focusing on.

  • Sailing Holiday Week fee is £495 per person per week. All food, bedding, fuel, gas, mooring fees included………….absolutely no extras!
  • RYA Training Week fee is £495 per person per week.  All food, bedding, fuel, gas, mooring fees, and certificates included….absolutely no extras!

All weeks begin Sunday when everyone has arrived and end Friday noon. The dates for 2017 are…………
