Milebuilder courses are for those who want to build miles towards an RYA qualification or for those who just love spending lots of time travelling on a yacht. The Clyde in Scotland is the perfect location to sail from for sheltered waters and more challenging tidal crossings. The course will be tailored to those who book on it but expect to spend some time sailing in watches and doing longer passages with some night sailing.
