RYA Yachtmaster Fast Track Sail Training Programme

“Endeavour Sailing’s unique Yachtmaster Fast Track  Sail Training Programme is a full-time training package which will take you from an absolute beginner to Yachtmaster Offshore in 16 weeks.

Our programme has been redesigned for 2021 following on from feedback from our past students and changes within the RYA Yachtmaster Exam.

At Endeavour Sailing we carefully choose our instructors, for their experience, their ability to teach, their patience and their ability to make each day fun.

The yachts we use are owned by us and our modern, well equipped, clean and comfortable.

With a dedicated shore side training room & offices, wifi access and world reclaimed marina facilities you will find the whole experience second to none (not to mention the weather – all year round sunshine!)

Our brochure should have all the information you require but please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions – we do understand this is a big commitment on your behalf, both time and money, and it is essential you make the right choice.
