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.
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.
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.

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”
Thanks, Sea Jays, Certificate received. Great course and Euan is an excellent instructor. Yacht very well equipped and really gets going above Force 4.
