I've been let down by my skipper who was doing own boat tuition with my wife and I. I now need a replacement instructor who can come aboard our Nauticat 39 probably for a week or so over the next three months to get us up to speed. Not interested in RYA quals, just good practical experience at this stage. I have one other potential option at present but am after three or four so that I can select someone that we can get on with. Anyone got any ideas/recommendations?

Boat based at Gosport.

Most sailing schools can organise own boat tuition for you, I used to do it myself for a school. In our case the owner remained skipper and the instructor was there in an 'advisory' capacity. This was for insurance purposes and although the instructor usually plans the activities, the final word remains with the owner if he doesn't wish to do something.

The main thing is to pick a school well known for good instructors, its obviously unimportant what there reputation for food or boats is like as you will be on your own. At the time Southern Sailing had an enviable reputation for good instructors, not sure if this still applies, but probably so.

Try Southern Sailing - they do own boat tuition at reasonable (to me) rates
