Changes to RYA Training for 2015

From the start of 2015, Quantum Sailing will be partnering with RYA Training Centre Hamble School of Yachting to deliver RYA training courses. This exciting change allows us to offer a wider range of options to clients wanting to take RYA training courses, in line with our strategy to deliver the most flexible and personalised sailing experience possible.

Goodbye to Quantum Leap

For the 2014 season, Quantum Sailing is implementing a new strategy to provide flexibility by working with selected charter supply partners to provide sailing opportunities in different locations and on different types of vessels. Whilst this meant saying goodbye to Quantum Leap, the Sunfast 37 that has been at the heart of our operations since 2008, we are pleased that it has gone to a good home. It is now part of the fleet at Hamble School of Yachting, one of our key suppliers, so is still available to us and we are sure that it will be used still for many future Quantum Sailing cruises.

Quantum Sailing working with YachtMovers

We are pleased to announce that Quantum Sailing will be working more closely with YachtMovers in the coming year. A delivery specialist, providing a high quality service that goes the extra mile to give the customer help and support, YachtMovers is a great partner for Quantum Sailing. Look out for more delivery crewing opportunities which will be offered through the Quantum Sailing Network.

Successful Fastnet campaign

Quantum Sailing's entry for the 2013 Fastnet, our Sunfast 37, Quantum Leap successfully completed the 608 nautical mile course in a little under four and a half days. The enthusiastic crew, none of whom had competed in the race before, worked brilliantly together throughout and enjoyed some great sailing along the way. The post race celebrations at the Plymouth Yacht Haven were well deserved. You can read about the crew's adventures in our 'soup-to-nuts' Fastnet diary.
