Skysail Training

I started this site to support students on RYA Shorebased Courses at local colleges. I have also taught at Oxford University YC, Bisham Abbey Navigation School, Westview Sailing, and numerous yacht clubs. The site supplements the available RYA and other publications with a lot more detail and (I hope!) interesting narrative. Feedback, questions and suggestions are always welcome.

I cruised and raced a Moody 336 'Skyva II' for 10 years, then Jeanneau 43DS 'Philippa' and then a Moody 36 'Sofie'.

I have sailed for over 40 years, starting in dinghy racing, later taking to cruising in the English Channel with some cruiser racing.  Skyva II was an ISC Class Winner in the Round the Island Race in 2001 and 2002, finishing 15th overall  in 2001
