"The instruction and welcoming from the professional crew helped make the whole experience , my fav part was getting to spend a night in a cove at anchor" - by John L. Golden Vanity RYA course summer 2019

Very Motivated

“A very comprehensive level of knowledge and skills. Far exceeded my expectations and the course syllabus. I now feel reasonably confident of my basic sailing competence. Very Motivated. The standard of instruction and coaching was brilliant. A good mix of information delivered in a humorous and motivating manner.” - Anon - Summer 2019

The Best Bits?

Best Bits  - "All of it! Sailing in strong winds. Dolphins. Torrential rain. Pie and mash on the coach house. Watching the crew giggling in the scuppers with waves crashing over them. Getting my three point fix right. Getting our Day Skipper" - Summer 2019

Wonderful Experience

“Wonderful experience made special by Jim’s own brand of humour and Ida’s calmness”

All comments from Vanity RYA Course

I have just finished a voyage on Golden Vanity. The skipper and mate had fantastic knowledge of the area and the boat. The food was amazing and the sailing was excellent. I am definitely going to book more voyages on Golden Vanity again." Morten H W.

“In my 17 years of having a bright, enthusiastic and diligent daughter never have I seen her so animated as from the moment she stepped back ashore after the week’s trip on Golden Vanity.” Father of Connie, Golden Vanity, Duke of Edinburgh Voyage
