Overview
More
Ours is a small, owner operated company, specialising in bespoke sailing courses and skippered charters for families and small groups. We operate in the spectacular Phang Nga Bay and Andaman Sea area, one of the World's most amazing sailing locations. Glorious sunshine, breathtaking scenery, idyllic anchorages, warm crystal clear waters and a cool breeze, making this the perfect setting for any type of sailing activity. Our yacht 'Sita' is a Beneteau First 45f5; she is a modern 'performance' cruiser with three spacious, double berth cabins and a convertible berth in the saloon. Her forward Master Cabin is particularly comfortable with en-suite head and shower compartment, plenty of 'swinging' room and a full, Queen size berth. We are proud to be a recognised RYA Training Centre, offering the full range of RYA sail cruising courses, both practical and theory, up to Coastal Skipper Yachtmaster Offshore level. We specialise in private charter 'Master Class' courses for families and small groups, with optional Thai cook on-board to take care of all the galley work and help with general crew duties (highly recommended!). We can also provide onshore accommodation for our RYA theory courses, or for a few days relaxation before or after your sailing trip. The accommodation is in our secluded, luxury pool villa, which has two double-bed guest rooms, each with A/C, en-suite, wi-fi and satellite TV. Breakfast is included and other meals can be provided if required. Please visit our web-site for prices and more information.
