Brandy in Portpatrick

Brandy in Portpatrick

Hopefully my web site provides 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 2018 I am running 5 RYA Training Weeks covering Competent Crew, Cruising Level 1 & 2, Day Skipper and Coastal Skipper courses. These 2018 RYA training weeks will run in the Spring. These are programmed early to ensure I have enough night hours to work through the RYA syllabus. .please note I run these over 6 days. 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 2018 Skippered Charter 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.

  • RYA Training Week fee is £550 per person per week.  All food, bedding, fuel, gas, mooring fees, and certificates included….absolutely no extras!
