Both yachts are perfectly suited to the waters around the Clyde and the west coast of Scotland. They provide up to 5 berths for client and all courses and cruises are led by one of our experienced instructors.
Food is provided throughout the cruise. Waterproof sets and lifejackets are on-board each yacht.
