Our team of passionate and patient sailing instructors have been trained by the RYA. They have a wealth of experience to help you get the best out of your course.
Our Skippers and Instructors have been selected with two main criteria in mind.:
- Their professional qualifications (all of us are at minimum qualified as RYA Yachtmaster Offshore, and have sailed and taught for thousands of miles).
- Their passion for what they do: we all just love being on the water! Transferring our passion to anyone willing to learn or join in is what keeps us going!
Professional yet easy-going, their passion for sailing is contagious!
Also important for you to know, at White Wake Sailing safety comes always before anything else! You can rest assured that should the weather not play for us, our skippers and instructors will always put the safety and comfort of crew, students, guests first.
