About Us

What We Do

At Sea Jay’s we teach students at their own pace, whilst making the training fun and enjoyable. No one is expected or asked to tackle anything outside their own comfort zone. Students are assessed for their strengths and weaknesses at the end of each day during an evening debrief. Our aim is to make sure that everyone is enjoying the experience.

Sea Jay’s are proud to be contracted by the Ministry of Defence for private sail training, and proud supporters of the Defence Discount Scheme and Bluelight Card for NHS, Police and emergency services.

The Team

As of the start of December 2016, Fiona Vander took up the opportunity to run Sea Jays Solent Sailing School.

With her infectious laughter and ever happy persona, Fiona decided that it was time to ‘spruce up’ the school ready for 2017. This includes focusing initially on our two yachts Sea Breeze and Sea Lily, which underwent a major refit programme. Her newly appointed Chief Instructor for Sail Cruising & Powerboat, Jamie Griffin, has joined Fiona and is busy turning the school plans into reality and giving the best on the water tuition as possible.

The Future

We are going to be upgrading and changing lots of parts of our business, even as far as a smart sailing kit for our instructors, and we will be offering more courses with more availability’

For more information about the exciting changes call Fiona or email us on the details below – we can’t wait to hear from old and new friends.

I have just finished my coastal skipper aboard Seajay IV with Jamie. I have to thank you all for an amazing course and what an amazing week popping over to France then loads of technical sailing back here in the Solent.

A very quick note to say thank you very much to you and the team for a really enjoyable and informative week’s sailing.

Andy and Caroline Hamer

A short message to say what a great time we had over the past two days with Edwin. He was very encouraging, informative and patient, and made the two days great fun. We both learned a lot and he was very helpful with general tips about the boat. In particular, he was very encouraging to Caroline to the degree that… “Andy and Caroline Hamer”

Andrew Halliwell

Just a quick note to you and Euan to say thanks for a great Yachtmaster prep week three weeks ago. I really enjoyed the whole week, from your helpfulness in booking, through to the well-kept boats and to Euan’s patient experienced and good-humoured teaching. A great week despite the mixed weather. I’ll definitely be recommending Seajays to any interested friends… “Andrew Halliwell”

Richard

I had a great week on the day skipper course. Gareth is a great teacher patient but demands high standards. Thanks again to him. The boat was great. Learnt a lot despite the other world distractions. Lymington is a great springboard for sailing. Would be happy to recommend.
