Race Training

Motion Charters offers a range of courses to suit your every need from the Basic Race training to the Advance theory and practical five day course.


Yacht racing should be for everyone, and getting the right training is important. We can help you understand what’s happening on board a race yacht, to become an essential member of the crew, and to feel confident hopping on board race yachts in the future.

You can take part in race training courses to build your skills and confidence. We offer a variety of race training programmes from two to five days, from an introduction to yacht racing to advance yacht racing.

If you are part of a crew already you can bring your team for a session to improve performance and skill building training.

Introduction to Racing

The introduction to yacht racing is aimed at sailors who have never raced before or who may have done the odd corporate race day. The course subjects include: setting up the yacht, going through crew roles, practicing spinnaker sets, drops and gybing, mark rounding and efficient sailing.

At the end of the course, you will have developed the skills required to compete in an inshore race.
