What should I do first?
If you want to learn the basics of sailing, then a Junior Start Sailing Weekend or Adult Beginner course is the best place to start. Alternatively, if you'd like to have a go before committing then why not try a sailing safari?
How old do I need to be?
Generally for a junior course you need to be between 8 and 16 years old, although we can sometimes take slightly younger sailors afloat, especially if they're coming with a parent on a sailing safari.
For adult courses we recommend that you're at least 14 years old, but we're happy to be flexible if you'd rather learn on an adult course. And of course you're never too old to learn to sail!
What about the weather?
The weather on the west coast of Scotland can be variable. However while we can't promise that the weather will be perfect, when the weather is good we think there is no-where better to sail.
If the weather is wet or cold, then our thick wetsuits, spray tops, and unlimited warm drinks whenever you're ashore will keep you warm.
Strong winds can make a difference to the content of the course, and mean that we can never guarantee what we will be able to cover. Thankfully, very strong winds are uncommon during the sailing season, Campbeltown Loch is sheltered, and our well maintained boats are set up to cope with anything except for the windiest of days.
We will always do our best to run a course, but the content might change. Our experienced senior instructors have lots of tricks up their sleeves to make your course an enjoyable one, whatever the weather.
