Equinox Courses

Equinox Sailing run practical and theory sailing courses for all abilities from beginners to expert.
We offer bespoke sailing courses and packages tailored to your experience and target areas for improvement. Contact Us to discuss how we can help you to achieve your sailing goals.
Sailing is  demanding, it requires many skills which need practice; the ability to read and harness the wind, navigation skills and the ability to control the boat with or without the motor.
If you are new to sailing, returning to sailing or looking to improve your technique, our skipper and crew development courses are designed to complement RYA sailing courses, participation in a racing series or cruising.

New to sailing
If you are new to sailing then we have a number of easy ways to start.
Although RYA courses will provide you with qualifications, quite often it can be difficult to practice a key skill or to develop new ones.

We have put together a number of courses that are designed to complement the RYA courses that we run. Using the same high quality of instructors ensures that you receive the best possible instruction and can increase your skills and confidence.

Competent Crew Plus
If you are considering attending your RYA Day Skipper and would like to learn a few bacis skippering skills or haven’t sailed for a while and are looking for a refresher to get your confidence back.

Day Skipper Plus
Everyone has an area of their sailing that could do with some extra practice. This course is ideal for anyone planning to charter a boat or those who haven’t sailed for a while and would like to refresh their knowledge and brush up on some skills. Also suitable for those who are looking to move towards RYA Coastal Skipper.

Mile Building
Looking to sail a little further afield? Gain night hours? Why not join us for a trip across the Channel or along the South Coast of England.  Starting in Hamble, we will sail where the wind and the tide take us. If you have never sailed outside the Solent then this could be the trip for you.

Race Training
We provide race training as part of our inshore and offshore race programs ensuring that everyone on board knows how to sail the boat quickly and safely upwind and downwind.

Unsure which course is right for you? We will attempt to explain the broad, and sometimes confusing, range of sailing courses available.

We run  courses designed to complement the RYA courses and provide the opportunity to develop your skills and experience.

Rusty skills, need a refresher? If you are unsure, come out for a days sailing and let us give you our assessment.
