Directory of international sailing schools.
Read the account of an individual who finally plucks up the courage to sit his Yachtmaster practical exam and comes away with nothing but praise for the sailing school and a deeper love for the beautiful Hebridean cruising grounds.
We get an insight into the first ever professional Yachtmaster course run by the Scottish National Centre on the island of Cumbrae and see if the intensive training will be enough to turn the candidates into Yachtmasters in the space of three months.
In our tactic of the month we learn to optimise the shape of our sail to provide us with winning performance.

The RNLI have produced a fabulous safety booklet with accompanying CD-ROM which will help you to learn to be safer at sea.
