Tidal Mile Building Sailing Course

Our tidal mile builders will suit any sailing enthusiast looking to increase their mileage under the watchful eye of an RYA Instructor. Build your tidal sea miles with passages to different islands in the Canaries. 

You will be involved in skippering different passages, the planning and navigation. Night sailing is included, and following the discipline of a watch system, the passages are designed to allow you to build up those important miles and enhance your skills to take you from Day Skipper towards Coastal Skipper, boost your confidence or just extend your cruising experience.

We meet on a Sunday evening at 18.30 when you will be given a safety brief on the boat, in the evening you will eat ashore which is a great time to get to know your other crew members.  On Monday morning all final checks are done and then you set sail.

Our courses cover over 300 miles or 800 miles, and are intensive but immensely rewarding and allows you to experience different sailing conditions.

The final destinations for our mile building weeks are of course weather dependent. If unsuitable then we head to alternative destinations. We always keep you fully informed and give you details a week before departure. 

Course Overview

For our one week milebuilders we will leave Puerto Calero, Lanzarote and travel South around the Northern edge of Fuerteventura and then on past Gran Canaria heading towards Tenerife.  You will spend a well deserved break and rest overnight in Tenerife, and then travel back via Gran Canaria and the South side of Fuerteventura to Puerto Calero Lanzarote covering approximately 300 miles.

The two week milebuilders take us further afield around the Canary Islands, giving plenty of 60 mile passages. 

Both of these options are great ways to achieve your Yachtmaster qualifying passages, with plenty of opportunities for passage planning and pilotage into different ports.

For those interested in alternative dates for 2019 we also suggest you take a look at our Passage Making and Skills week which is a shorter mile building week circumnavigating the island of Lanzarote with a stop at the neighbouring island of La Graciosa (Passage Making and Skills week).  The dates below are confirmed milebuilders, but if you wish alternative dates please contact me and I will see what we can arrange for you.
