The SIA Weekender Charter Course is available at our Sailing Schools in Thailand and Malaysia.
This Weekender Charter option will help you develop the skills and knowledge you need to become a competent member or skipper on a sailing yacht of up to 24 metres.
It is very much a hands-on weekend where you consolidate the skills, management and theory of the course you have just completed.  It teaches you that by getting out there on the water and doing it yourself, there is a huge gain in confidence and in skill.  Our experienced instructors will guide you every step of the way ensuring you have a rewarding and enjoyable experience as you learn - if you request further teaching?

However, you will understand how to hoist and trim (adjust) the sails, how to work as a part a crew and how to steer the boat before you embark on your weekend. We make sure you and your crew are supported and competent to deal with weather, navigation, safety and your passage plans. And you’ll also learn how to perfect other important activities, such as anchoring, coming alongside in a marina berth or rescuing a man-overboard.

This Weekend Charter Course provides you with the solid foundation that you need to move on to the next level. You won’t be a solo ‘round the world sailor after three or four days, but you will be confident that you can handle a yacht in moderate to light sea and weather conditions.

Very probably the bug will have bitten you and you’ll want to take the training further: Bareboat Skipper, Yachtmaster Coastal!  Who knows?
