Build your experience and confidence on our mile builders, whilst you balance learning and enjoying your time sailing. Equinox run both 3 day mile builders and longer 7 or 10 days passages sailing to more interesting locations. All milebuilders include overnight passages, crossing busy shipping lanes, boat handling, sail trim, navigation, VHF, AIS and passage planning experience. Mile builders are key for those working towards their RYA Yachtmaster Coastal or Offshore qualifications, but they are great confidence builders for all levels of experience. They are a fantastic way to meet new people.
During our mile builders we will cover:
- Passage planning and making
- Watch systems and leading
- Boat handling
- Sail planning and trim
- RYA YachtMaster qualifying passages
- Use of weather forecast
- MOB menuvers by RYA demands
Practice your passage planning and experience why it is important to make tidal gates. Including crossing shipping lanes and dealing with busy Traffic Separation Schemes (TSS) and undertake the challenge of identifying vessels during your night sailing.
