SailTime members

All SailTime members upon completion of their induction can sail bareboat in sheltered waters for those member and  owners who wish to sail to sail alone and unassisted in open waters we require you to complete the RYA Day Skipper Tidal qualification (theory and practical).


Completing this course will ensure you have the skills to safely and confidently handle the boat in Coastal waters and enjoy your sailing with family and friends.

For SailTime globally assisting our members to gain the necessary skills to avoid unnecessary boating incidents that might otherwise result in the injury to you and your crew and or damage to the boat is a key focus and one that we take very seriously.

Whilst you are working towards your RYA Day Skipper Tidal qualification you can, of course, still sail. However, it is a requirement that you only sail within sheltered waters or if venturing into open waters have a Sailing Instructor onboard.
