At BOSS, we specialise in running five day cruising courses for teenagers. Programmed to run during the school holidays, a BOSS cruising course provides an ideal solution to keeping teenagers happy and active and during the long summer holiday.

These specially developed courses are open to young people between the ages 14-17. No previous sailing experience is necessary and teens can come along as individuals or come with a group of friends! Our sailing adventures take place within the Solent. Visit interesting places, learn valuable life skills, whilst having a great time & gain a recognised RYA qualification.

DofE Gold Residential Sailing Courses  Duke of Edinburgh's Award - Five day courses meet the criteria for the Residential section of  the Gold Duke of Edinburgh award (DofE) scheme.

Course fees include:

 • Food onboard
 • All safety equipment
 • BBQ ashore
 • Mooring fees
 • Wet Weather Gear
 • RYA Certificate

Most of our youth sailors will be working towards the RYA Competent Crew qualification. The Day Skipper practical syllabus can be followed by those aged 16 - 17,  who have the appropriate experience and meet the pre course requirements.
