This Is What We Do

Welcome to Change of Tack – a marine leisure based business designed to provide you with access to professional sail training services, commercial yacht master, navigation, technology and hospitality skills afloat.

Change of Tack training services are designed to take you from your first experiences afloat right through to preparation for skippering your own boat competently & safely.

Training can be provided through the facilities of recognised RYA training centres with whom we work. Or, if you prefer, training can be delivered on your own boat. ‘Own boat tuition’ is a great way to gain valuable experience with the vessel and equipment that you will be sailing with.

Training services can be delivered in a classroom environment or afloat and will be tailored to your individual requirements.

Based in rugged west Cornwall we can and do operate worldwide to deliver services to our clients.
