Why book with First Class Sailing

Whilst you might find costs for the RYA Coastal Skipper courses can vary from school to school, it’s important to remember the value and quality of the teaching, the experience on the water, a national reputation, and positive customer reviews – all of which we have in abundance at First Class Sailing.

Not only will you learn valuable skills that will stay with you for life, but on our practical courses you’ll also explore the beautiful coastline around the Solent during your lessons.

A guide to our Coastal Skipper course prices

When you book a Coastal Skipper course it should never just be about the price. Our prices depend on two factors.

What days of the week the course runs on

Our Coastal Skipper course runs over 5 consecutive days. The cost will vary depending on whether a course includes a weekend or not.

Generally, courses that run over weekdays only i.e., a Monday to Friday, are priced lower than those that include a weekend (i.e., a Wednesday to Sunday).

The ratio of students to instructor

We offer our Coastal Skipper course on a ratio of 4 students to 1 instructor.

Why are some companies’ Coastal Skipper prices cheaper than First Class Sailing?

You will find some companies’ costs are less than ours.

Some companies will be considerably cheaper, and they will likely be a ‘one man/woman, one boat band’. The instructor that takes your 5 day course is also the person that takes your booking, maintains the boat, orders the food, looks after their own website etc.

It is a challenging role, and we have a lot of respect for these operations. Because they have very low overheads, they can keep their prices down.

At First Class Sailing we have a team in the office focused on answering any questions you might have, making sure we are using top rate well paid instructors, ensuring our boats are kept clean and well maintained and making sure that we live up to our Triple S Guarantee.
