Yachting Skool plots a steady course through the basics of yacht sailing. This introduction to the sport features Olympic sailor Andy Beadsworth who coaches top windsurfer and television pundit Peter Hart and their respective girlfriends, Jax and Stephanie, in this introduction to handling a yacht under sail and power. 

Produced at Neilson's RYA approved centres in the stunning Dodecanese in Turkey and at their UK training base in Brighton, it contains much of the information required for the Day Skipper qualification, making the programme a valuable companion for anyone wanting to make rapid progress through the sport. 

Yachting is for everyone, irrespective of age, sex or physical prowess and it is increasingly accessible to anyone wanting to experience this fabulous pastime. 

Learning properly is the key to enjoyment in any sport and yachting is no different. This is evidenced by the antics of Jilly and Stan whose erratic and Chaplinesque performance as novice 'yotties' will convince anyone of the need for proper tuition.
