Their boat is coded to the rigorous safety specifications demanded by the MCA, and in many areas our safety features exceed those expected. They offer expertly created meals using only fresh produce and your evening meals are accompanied by a bottle of wine.

Sailing in the Clyde and off the West Coast of Scotland can be challenging, demanding, exciting and great fun. Let them show you the beauty that is all around us in the Clyde. The Isle of Arran is well worth a visit. With its Castle at Brodick, it has wonderful gardens to explore. Bring walking boots and master the 874m to the top of Goat Fell. If that's too strenuous, visit the chocolate factory, the cheese shop or the brewery.

The choice is yours when you visit this wonderful island on a sailing course, day sail or skippered charter.

Other destinations for your course or charter here on the West Coast of Scotland are Tarbert, Loch Fyne; Millport on Great Cumbrae; as well as the plentiful unspoilt anchorages.

Second Wind Sailing offers sailing courses from RYA Start Yachting up to RYA Yachtmaster preparation.
