Stormforce Coaching’s main centre and company headquarters are in Shamrock Quay, Southampton. All bookings and enquiries are taken through the Shamrock Quay office. As winter arrives in the UK, one of our yachts starts its’ Atlantic circuit, sailing South for the sunshine of the Canary Islands and then crossing the Atlantic for the winter season, before returning to Europe for the summer race season in the Solent.

At Stormforce Coaching, we offer a wide range of sailing courses, yacht racing events and charter. So, whatever kind of sailing you’re interested in, we’re confident we will have an option to suit everyone. We offer a variety of Sailing courses on different types of sailing craft and opt to teach the RYA’s National Sailing Scheme in Keelboats. So, why choose the keelboat for training over other types of sailing boat? Well, for those new to sailing, the keelboat is the ideal boat on which to learn.

Sailing Courses

Shore based & E-Learning

At Stormforce Coaching, we run a wide range of Shorebased training courses for sailors, powerboaters and divers.

Our shorebased courses encompass a variety of skill levels. Some of the shorter one day courses, such as the RYA First Aid and RYA SRC (VHF Radio) are suitable for complete beginners, whilst some of the longer courses, such as RYA Yachtmaster Shorebased and Master 200 are advanced level theoretical courses.

Whichever shorebased course you choose, you will find our resources second to none. We have five well equipped training rooms enabling us to simulate all forms of electronic navigation, marine radio, engine maintenance and First Aid scenarios.

We also use a swimming pool for life raft training. Although these are essentially theoretical shorebased courses, they all have many practical, hands-on elements.

Fast-Track Courses

Stormforce Coaching have designed a range of modular training courses to help sailors and powerboaters fast-track their way into our industry. 

Benefits Of Stormforce Coaching

We have a large fleet of 6 sail yachts, 1 motor cruiser, 2 RIBs, 2 PWCs and 3 keelboats. Futhermore, we have a large number of skippers on our full time staff meaning we will almost always have a boat for charterers and a skipper available for those who want one!
