My two boys, aged 11 and 8, have had a great introduction to sailing with Salcombe Dinghy Sailing. Zoe was very helpful during the booking process and both boys said they enjoyed learning from Ross. I'm sure they'll be back! Thank you.

We hired a Drascombe Lugger for the day for a group of family and friends. It was it great boat, fun to sail and with a convenient outboard. We had a brilliant day. Many thanks to Ross and Zoe for looking after us so well.

Hello Mrs James, Thanks so much for your enquiry. I'm really sorry but we don't have any yachts, only small dinghy's. Please try Salcombe Yacht Charter. Hope that helps. Best wishes, Zoe
