TMS is here to provide you with the best sail training, yacht chartering, racing programmes and cruise opportunities from Gosport on the Solent in Hampshire.
We can help you set sail into your own personal sunset whether you are an experienced sailor – or looking to “learn the ropes” from scratch. We work with some of the big names in the industry to offer the benefit of our huge range of experience afloat to others – these include Britannia Sailing, Sailing Logic, Tall Ships Youth Trust and UKSA.
SAIL TRAINING – YACHT CHARTERING
Whether you are a newcomer to sailing – enrolling on a sail training course, someone looking to increase their yachting experience and sailing skills, or looking at yacht chartering for a cruise – we are here to help. For those of you who are looking to reward staff, team-build or entertain clients, sailing with TMS represents excellent value for money. Our Corporate Sailing packages are tailored to meet your needs. Our Gosport base offers great access to the Solent, the Channel and beyond, while still offering the sheltered waters of Portsmouth Harbour if the conditions outside are a little beyond your comfort zone.
For many, cruising is THE way to explore, linking our maritime heritage with places often inaccessible or best viewed only from the water. Chief Instructor, has spent many years teaching training courses and as the Cruise Leader of the RYA’s Sail Cruise. All of our team have sailed extensively around the UK and further afield. As well as exploring the Solent, we often escape to other parts of the Channel and occasionally further afield.
In 2008 we sailed around most of Britain, heading west to Ireland before making our way through the Hebrides and around Cape Wrath. After the Orkneys we headed south to Inverness and then through the Caledonia Canal before heading home. All in all, 2,500 miles of fantastic sailing. We are working on other long-distance cruising plans for forthcoming years.
For those of you with less time available, or a more competitive streak, why not consider joining us for a day’s racing. Or even the Fastnet if you are feeling more adventurous still. Our racing days will be in the Solent taking part in one of the local race series with up to two races a day. Contact us for full details of our racing programme
We are already starting to plan our entry in to the world famous Round The Island Race in 2014. The race weekend itself will see crew join us on the evening of the 19th June ready for a days refresher training on the 20th ready for the early start of the race itself on the 21st June. Cost for the weekend will be £300 per head. Training weekends will also be available at extra cost, dates to be announced in the Autumn.
It is a Sigma 400. Designed as a fast, comfortable cruiser/racer by Rob Humphreys, and one of only 25 built. Probably one of the best-equipped charter yachts around, she comes with roller-reefing genoa, slab-reefed main, radar, two chart plotters, storm jib and tri-sail, auto-inflate lifejackets and EPIRB. Not only is she well-equipped, but her performance will see you sailing long after others have put the engine on.
