Victory Yacht Charters
Haslar Sea School & Victory Yacht Charters are Gosport based sailing companies.
Being just a few minutes from the Solent proper, and having historic Portsmouth Harbour on hand for those few occasions when the weather is not conducive to venturing outside, we are in a prime location to start either a charter, or training course.
Started in 1998. when Portway Portsmouth was taken over, Victory Yacht Charters has grown from its original 3 yachts to the current fleet of 13 - including two of the few coded catamarans around. With an average age of just two years, we offer a range of quality boats from builders such as Jeanneau, Bavaria, and Fontaine-Pajot from 30 to 44 feet long.
As a development of Victory Yacht Charters, we set up Haslar Sea School in January 2002 to give our existing charterers an chance to develop and build on their existing skills, and also offer an opportunity to newcomers to the sport to get started in a safe, and enjoyable atmosphere. We offer the full range of RYA practical and theory courses all year round.
After a very successful first year, we have already gained a reputation for delivering good quality training, at a sensible price. With only four clients on board, rather than the RYA norm of 5, we ensure everyone has plenty of space in which to live. This also gives the added benefit of giving everyone more time in which to practice the skills taught during a course.
As part of our continuing development, we are now able to run Powerboat Level 1 and Level 2 Courses. These van be run either on your own boat, or our 6.5m Porter Brothers' RIB.
Using yachts that are common charter vessels as our training boats, helps to ensure a smooth transition from trainee to charterer as more experience is gained.
Our dedicated classroom overlooks the marina. It is equipped with all the tools necessary to teach the RYA theory courses, first aid, and radio courses.
Training, both practical and shorebased, can also be arranged on your own yacht, or at a venue local to you if there are sufficient numbers. As an aide to those undertaking RYA training, or just wanting to brush up on their skills we have created a Training Tips page, which contains all sorts of useful hints and web sites.
