This is a 4 day course where the crew decide where to go, plan the passage and take us there!
This course is a great way for skippers to expand their experience, perhaps with a view to complete your Coastal Skipper or Yachtmaster and need to gain some extra miles and passages.
Whether cross channel to Cherbourg or down to Plymouth, after first having looked the weather and tides, your experienced club Instructor will help you pull together a passage plan to get you there! Or you can just come along for the ride and get some miles under your belt.
The price includes the yacht and instructor, but not food or mooring fees which are shared between the crew.
In 2017 the Milebuilder course covered over 250 miles. The passages completed were Hamble – Yarmouth – Weymouth – Cherbourg and Hamble.
