Our Instructors have been with us for a number of seasons and are all very experienced sailors in their own right as well as being highly trained instructors with a wealth of knowledge and talent. Jamie Griffin, our Chief Instructor, has vast experience teaching on the water. Starting in dinghies at a young age and now everything sail and power, he also runs his own video production company. Jon is a Jazz musician and trumpeter. Euan is a professional sailor who as a hobby renovates houses in his spare time…Our instructors have one mutual love and that is being out on the water sharing their knowledge with all who sail with them.

Mile Building

Mile Building

For some it is a way to build up the nautical miles and gain experience in preparation for the next level but for others it is the excitement and challenge of leaving Lymington on a Monday morning and sailing to ports in France and the Channel Islands which they might never otherwise visit. Each one so different and with so much to offer in their own uniqueness.
