Weekend Sailing Cruises

2 days

Age 16+

These are great courses for exploring the islands of the Clyde estuary and are suitable for all sailors from complete beginner to the very experienced. The time afloat can also count as sea time towards cruising qualifications or for completing the RYA Start Yachting syllabus. Many just go for fun!

These 2 day cruises start and finish at Largs Yacht haven. Cruises begin on a Friday evening, quite often with a short passage to Cumbrae or Bute. The boats are comfortable and well equipped. There is so much scope on the Clyde for two days that we can always select routes and places to visit suited to the weather conditions. Everyone onboard will be encouraged to try the variety of roles on the yacht before departing on the Sunday, about 4pm, with a better understanding of sailing.

Equipment and Kit Information

Weekend Sailing Cruises - Kit Info

Cruising activities are enjoyed onboard one of our 2 yachts. The Centre currently has two Solana’s a 37ft named Somerled and a 38ft 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 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. 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.
