5 day Mile Builders course


Mile Builder courses are designed to facilitate yachtsmen and women building sea miles and experience on longer and more challenging passages than is often not possible on some courses. 

Mile Builder courses are offered year round in the UK and are ideal for building confidence as well as accumulating mileage. 

With a RYA qualified instructor on board, our 5 day Mile Builder course is also a great way to work through the requirements of your next RYA syllabus. These courses are often combined with RYA Day Skipper or Coastal Skipper courses. 

Mile Builder Courses are recommended for sailors who are at RYA Day Skipper level or above.

The Mile Builder courses have been designed by to include more challenging passages and allow you to cover more miles than is possible with a traditional yacht charter or flotilla holiday. The actual itinerary will depend on the instructor and conditions, but you should expect to cover around 150/200 miles during the week.
