Offshore Sailing Programme

Designed to fill the gap between the skills and qualifications of leisure sailors and the experience, competence and professionalism required in a professional maritime environment. Applications for 2023 now being considered.

In 2005 PYD introduced a mile building Offshore Sailing Programme for sailors who are looking to become better mariners by learning from highly experienced skippers in the industry. If you are working towards your RYA Yachtmaster, are interested in a career as a professional skipper or if you would like to broaden your experience aboard different yachts on a variety of delivery passages then this programme is for you.

Candidates will undertake a variety of passages under the guidance and direction of a skipper with thousands of miles and a wealth of experience. The programme can be tailored to suit your specific needs to ensure that you get what you want out of it. We offer a 10,000 nautical mile builder programme.
What’s included:

For those who are sufficiently motivated for the challenge and have the necessary experience we are now accepting applicants for this season  – If you feel that you are up for the challenge then apply online or contact us at [email protected] for more information and a detailed brochure on the programme.
