The Company

Sailing InTuition was born out of Daniel’s love of teaching, sailing and passion for the sport. Having travelled all over (and round) the world teaching sailing from competitive to grass route level Daniel is keen to bring those skills home. The goal of Sailing InTuition is to provide gold standard training to create highly skilled, safe sailors whether that be focused on racing or exploring Scotland’s stunning coastline.
Based out of Largs on the West Coast of Scotland, Sailing InTuition will ensure that your time afloat with us is second to none.

Offshore and coastal racing

The Boat

Yacht InTuition is a Salona 40. She was carefully chosen to be the perfect boat for the job or RYA training, adventure sailing and competitive offshore racing. Being a cruiser racer she combines comfort and performance.
In 2020 she was extensively refitted with new standing rigging, new sails and MCA coded for 8 persons onboard in 3 cabins and a spacious saloon.
