Equipment and Kit Information

Spinnaker Weekend - Kit Info

The cruising activities are enjoyed onboard one of our 2 yachts. The Centre currently has a 37ft Salona named Somerled and a 38ft Salona named Santa Vey. Both yachts are perfectly suited to the waters around the Clyde and the west coast of Scotland. They provide up to 5 berths for clients and all courses and cruises are led by one of our experienced instructors.

Food is provided throughout the cruise. If required, waterproof sets and lifejackets are on-board each yacht. All other clothing is the responsibility of the sailor and we recommend bringing warm comfortable clothing which is easy to layer, a warm hat, gloves, suitable footwear, towel and toiletries and of course suntan lotion.

If you are choosing an RYA course requiring individual chart work, then please bring your own navigation tools.
