The stunning waters of the Solent, the beauty of the New Forest and the shops of Lymington – perfect!


We are based in Lymington Yacht Haven, which is (in our opinion) the friendliest marina in The Solent. Our offices and classrooms are based just off the water in the marina, giving us a comfortable shore base from where we start our water based courses, and from where we teach a wide range of the theory courses.

We genuinely cannot think of a better place in the Solent to be based. Lymington is located at the western end of The Solent, which is the stretch of sea between the mainland and the Isle of Wight. It is also on the south side of the New Forest National Park – some 90,000 acres of open heathland and woods.

Lymington Yacht Haven is the southernmost of the two marinas in Lymington and our offices and all our boats are based here giving us the flexibility to come on and off the water as often as we wish.   Ten minutes downstream & we are straight out into the open waters of The Solent – fifteen minutes later we can be at The Needles & beyond, or over towards Cowes, but we also have the shelter & protection of the Isle of Wight meaning we can run courses in almost any conditions & rarely have to cancel for bad weather.

If you want a mix of activities, or are looking for alternative entertainment for anyone not coming on one of our courses, the combination of the water and the forest, with the Isle of Wight a hop by ferry to the south and the busy hubs of Southampton and Bournemouth nearby mean there is something here for even the hardest to please family member.
